** The Romans certainly weren't arresting Christians during the reign of Caligula. There's no indication that the Romans even noticed the new cult until the time of Nero a good quarter-century later.
** Caligula uses the RoyalWe, is called emperor, etc. In actuality the Romans still paid lip service to the idea of a republic and the "emperor" would have been called ''princeps'', which translates out to "[[JustTheFirstCitizen first citizen]]".
