comment Was Alexander the Great ever an emperor?
Archistrategos is a military term, not a political one.

We don't know for sure if Alexander adopted the title of Shahanshah. That said, I don't think it matters. He was the defacto leader of the largest state of its time.

comment What was the relatively most populous city in history?
@MichaelBorgwardt Fixed a mistake in my numbers, 200 AD Rome moved up to third place. (I had 80,000 instead of 800,000 in one of its estimates). I think the numbers are correct now, but please take a look at the linked spreadsheet to verify.

comment When did scientists first postulate that Earth's atmosphere might have an upper limit?
@Semaphore It's not off topic here, so it shouldn't be moved anywhere. Especially to a brand new site that has a long way to go before becoming a permanent fixture on the network (I sincerely hope it will, but at this point we simply don't know).

comment Nazi attitude towards pro-Nazi Jews
It was the earlier version of the question that was closed @Anixx (check the revision history). In any case, the question is open now.

there's no reason for that; the revision history is publicly accessible, anyone can see what edits you made

comment Did the date of 9/11 have significance, or was it chosen randomly?
Related (on Skeptics): Was the date for the 9/11 attack chosen to be the same as the emergency number in the U.S. (911)?

comment When did the Greeks stop calling themselves “Roman”?
Ρωμιός (Rhomaios) is still used, albeit mostly casually.
