* TranslationConvention: Lucius (and all other Romans) speak in Japanese, and "think" in Japanese as well. The only time a Roman speaks in Latin is when Lucius is in Japan and trying to communicate with the Japanese. Then again, this could be due to the fact that since everyone speaks Latin in Lucius's time, it's the author who's translating the Latin to Japanese.


** Averted in the manga, where the modern Japanese people trying to communicate with Lucius cannot comprehend his Latin (and try speaking to him in English instead). Satsuki is the sole exception, as she can converse in Latin due years of study as a Roman Empire otaku.

* {{Otaku}}: [[spoiler:Satsuki]] is this towards [[spoiler:anything related to the Roman Empire. She founded a Roman Empire themed club in high school and learned English, French, Italian and Latin so that she could read about the Roman Empire from western sources.

She's his perfect fit: intelligent, incredibly beautiful, loves Rome, speaks enough Latin to understand Lucius, and is directly told by her mother to find a "Spartan like" man when she was younger. Much of her screentime is devoted to their romance.

* MistakenForGay: Emperor Hadrian is gay, and despite his rank most Romans see male homosexuality as a laughably Greek affectation. The palace soldiers frequently joke that Lucius is Hadrian's new lover, a sentiment his baby crazy wife shares once he starts traveling all over the empire with Hadrian on account of his bathhouse building projects.[[spoiler: This becomes one of the reasons why she decides to leave him.]]

* AdaptationalDumbass: Commodus, while still ultimately seen as a halfway respectable roman noble, has his character more focused on his womanizing and weak constitution rather than the artistic and sensitive side he's more known for. Yamazaki even mentions it in the commentary, just justifies it since it was almost always PlayedForLaughs.
