comment How did people realize that America was a different continent?
Interesting. As recently as 10 years ago, I remember there being serious debate as to whether Mr. Vespucci had in fact traveled to the New World at all. Reading over the guy's wiki page now, there doesn't seem to be much sign of that.

comment Have any armies equipped/fed their officers and enlisted men equally?
This is IMHO on the fringes of a "right answer". The meer fact that you have "officers" is an indication that you plan on treating that class of Army personnel differently.

@YannisRizos - Did doctors give out pills that far back? I'd have figured they ground their own herbs. That sounds like it could be an anachronism.

comment What did the Phoenician sailor trader eat?
Just as a point of fact, according to wikipedia this is an oar-powered Assyrian warship, not a sail-driven Phonecian trading vessel. It could have had sails too, but we can't tell that from this fragment.

@LouisRhys is right. This is a linguistics question, not a history question.
