  1. has a Latin title and
  2. has little text

I suggest that we add language translations to this page rather than making many different translated pages.

No togas?

Was any explanation of this rule ever offered by the authorities?

I read just tonight that persons in Roman military dress have been scamming the tourists who wanted their pictures taken with the "centurions". I wonder if the Novaromani were perhaps suspected of wanting to do the same thing?

More or less the same. It's not that they ('they' in this case being a smallish woman with a clip-board and a lot of mascara) thought we were trying to scam people; it's just that as a result of the scams there is a blanket ban on anyone wearing Roman costumes in the forum. One may think it rather unfair to blame the costumes for the problem rather than the people inside them, but I suppose a 'no costumes' rule is easier to police than a 'no scammers' rule. M'. Constantinus Serapio put it to the authorities (still the small dark-eyed woman) that in facts these were not 'Roman costumes' but simply our clothes. This argument did not prove persuasive.
