* BadBoss: Salvius in general, especially when he executes a slave being sold to him because the slave is sick, and therefore "useless."
* BavarianFireDrill: Salvius justifies his crimes against Cogidubnus by saying he's acting under orders from the Emperor. It's unclear if this is really the case, but it doesn't help him when his case comes to trial.



* BiggerBad: The Emperor, if Salvius really was acting under his orders.



* DracoInLeatherPants/RonTheDeathEater: In-universe. Cephalus writes a letter to Cogidubnus which downplays his own guilt in the assassination plot while exaggerating Memor's.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Belimicus decides to go out with as much dignity as possible, hurling a dagger into Salvius just before dying of poison. Unfortunately, it doesn't kill him.



* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Belimicus decides to denounce Salvius's crimes upon realizing the latter means to kill him, but Salvius reveals that he's already poisoned him.
* HisNameIs: When confronted by Cogidubnus, Memor attempts to name Salvius as the one behind the assassination attempt, but Salvius cuts him off and places Cogidubnus under house arrest.



* MilesGloriosus: Modestus

to:

* MadeOutToBeATraitor: Salvius does this to Cogidubnus.
* MilesGloriosus: ModestusModestus.
* PetTheDog: Cephalus tries to prevent Quintus from drinking the poison meant for Cogidubnus, even though this blows the plot and leads directly to his own death. [[ThanatosGambit Though this is possibly what he wanted to happen.]]



* TheStarscream: Belimicus to Salvius.

to:

* ThanatosGambit: Cephalus writes a letter to Cogidubnus explaining Memor's role in the assassination plot. Cogidubnus recieves it just after Cephalus dies.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Agricola and Salvius both fire these at each other after Quintus reveals the truth.
* TheStarscream: Salvius to Cogidubnus. Belimicus to Salvius.

*** One theory is that the Vilbia curse is actually a misspelling/miscarving of "fibula", meaning amulet, rather than referring to an actual person.

A series of Latin textbooks which has [[CaptainObvious some association with Cambridge]]. Due to the lack of Latin textbooks it basically became the only one used in the UK for the past forty years, causing most former classics students to remember it. It even got a shout-out in ''Series/DoctorWho''.
