Is anyone able to recommend a book or website which lists slang from Ancient Rome?
As an example, how would a Roman say the equivalent of "it's screwed up"? There are many ways of saying this in English: "it's gone tits up", "it all went pear-shaped" and so on. However, as far as I can see the Romans would not have used the word for sex in this particular expression, as we do.
Any thoughts gratefully received.
