comment Was the Bosnian Crisis the trigger to WWI and not the assassination?
To call something a trigger is not the same as to call something a cause. To say "trigger" implies a specific incident that sets in motion a chain reaction. Hostile sentiment or a belligerent nature by themselves do not produce conflict; something has to provide an "excuse" to fight. The assassination was the trigger, nationalism a contributing cause.

comment Could senators visit Roman Egypt?
@FelixGoldberg Fair enough; the commentary that senators faced restrictions on all "frontier" provinces comes only from footnotes in secondary sources, so I removed that discussion.
