Re: Ancient Greeks or Romans training

Hello,

Thank you very much :)

Even if this is a funny source of information, as long as this remains true, this is the most important ! Plus, as a French, I am please to see Astérix

I'll try to find other information (comics, books, etc...) if this can interest some people

Kind regards,
