I know a lot of people talk about the historical innacuracies of Rome but Im not intricatly versed in this particular period, so could someone make a list of what the innacuracies are? Sorry if this is weird, but im a history geek and itll make it a lot more interesting for me to watch. thanks!

could be considerd spoilerish i geuss
well i always tell people if you can over look the small things (and afew pritty big ones) you will love the show
one thing that buged me and i don't know why is ceasar's hair line
he had too much hair
the other was octavian afew things about the future emperor
one he is too young two he had more sisters (but i understand why they only use the one) three by the time of ceasars death he was in ceasars army with two of his friends close friends one of whom would be come one of romes greatest genrals
and he also was not in rome (when ceasar died)
i understand alot of the changes made i didn't list every single one
but like i said they are all small little things

sorry i forgot to say
i understand why alot of changes were made it is after all a tv show and if they want to contune said tv show octavian must be in it alot and interact with the other chartures
the part i love the most is the storys of pulo and vurinus

yeah, it seems like the changes they did make werent total rewrites. Like, caesars hairline [the actor was great!] and it was a lot more interesting to have the julius [?] family in rome rather than doing whatever.
