    Found during excavations for Bloomberg's European headquarters in London:

    Read all about it: I went to Rome and all I got you was this stylus
  2. LCF a.k.a. Lucifer

    • Civis Illustris
    Apud Inferos
    What does "gift with a sharp point" mean.
  3. Pacifica grammaticissima

    • Civis Illustris
    In this case, a stylus.

    I'm finding the last two lines difficult to make sense of. I think the person who made the translation struggled with them as well. The translation provided doesn't seem all that likely. One thing I'm almost sure of is that the clause quo possem largius must be the object of daret.
  4. Dantius Homo Sapiens

    • Civis Illustris
    in orbe lacteo
    yes, it's hard for me to understand as well. I wonder if something's been misread.
