wrong photo description[edit]

The text of the photo was wrong.

I live in Rome, the facade in the photo was on the side of the Tiber river, not on Piazza Cavour (which is located behind the building).

Basilica of Saint Lawrence outside the Walls listed at Requested moves[edit]


A requested move discussion has been initiated for Basilica of Saint Lawrence outside the Walls to be moved to San Lorenzo fuori le Mura. This page is of interest to this WikiProject and interested members may want to participate in the discussion here. —RMCD bot 13:14, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Battle of Cannae[edit]

I have nominated Battle of Cannae for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. DrKay (talk) 17:27, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Rise of Rome completely unsourced[edit]

I just came across the article for the Rise of Rome, and discovered there is only a single citation in the whole article, ironically referencing the fall of Rome.

To be honest I didn't even bother reading the whole thing because the opening paragraphs were so nonsensical. It claims something is "undistputed" without any reference for years now.

I'm not that active a wikipedian so I didn't rewrite it myself, but I thought you guys should know. Mtijn (talk) 09:05, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

This article was written in the beginnings of Wikipedia, and has not been reworked since. However, as there is nothing to save from this drivel, nobody has tried to edit it. I left a note on the talk with some suggestions. There is a section on Roman imperialism in the Roman republic article that I would like to move there as a start.
