    I wouldn't trust the Romans in general as far as their take on the customs of "barbarian" peoples. Their bigoted commentaries are clearly in the interest of justifying the onward march of empire.

    OTOH, when they do make the rare positive expression, I tend to give it credence as a statement against their own interests.  

    Nothing human is alien to me.
