** The armour is accurate for that time in Roman history. So are the gladii, AKA short swords used in the film by the Romans. Except the spears; for some reason they are older thrusting spears (hastae), not period-accurate javelins (pila) which have telltale elongated spearheads.

** Women's status is depicted appropriate elevation for what it was in Pict culture.
** The language choice for the Picts, which would have been an approximation of a Celt break-off language.
** The diversity of the Roman army, which was a amalgamation of various conquered peoples under the rule of the Roman Empire.

* DesignatedGirlFight: Seems like it could be heading this way as both sides appear to have one ActionGirl each but it turns out Etain is one of the Picts as well, giving them two.
