    hehe...wrong! Try again! Most are good through!
    ps. The words are modded (not me)! Someone who speaks Latin (and knows the dirty words) is able to translate the names of the balloons! for others..try to guess, i placed discriptions that are not hard. Now they are not english swear words anymore

    Q2: What created Solon for the Athenians and for how long the Athenians swore to do not change it?
    Ten years according to Herodotus, while 100 according to Plutarch
    Q3: Who defeated M. Crassus at the battle of Carrhae. And in which year?
    "General" Surena

    Q4: What is the exact name of the 3rd Cato?
    Marcus Porcius Catō Uticensis

    The Picture
    It shows Cicero speaking to the Senate. What about, I'm not sure, but I'm certain he's giving one of his famous speeches.
    Q6: What cookies do you like best?
    Oooh, I almost said Jaffa Cakes, but they're cakes, not cookies. I'd say peanut butter, triple chocolate chunks.

    I see I have missed to fill in the date of Battle of Carrae, so here you are: 53 BC. Of other mistakes I am not aware

    The same is still wrong, and i didn't noticed the date so you were lucky
    Because Q4 was so hard you can have Aratiuncula. Enjoy it!
    The good answer was none. Cato Maior is one and Cato minor is too. But there were more people that had this name! now on to round 2

    I see now, where my error might be: I considered the first famous Cato as Marcus Porcius Cato (Cato the Elder, or Cato the Censor, 234BC–149BC), the second his son from the first marriage Marcus Porcius Cato Licinianus and from that I skipped diretly to the third famous Cato Marcus Porcius Catō Uticēnsis (Cato the Younger, 95BC–46BC).

    But your intent might be to go through the Cato family line step by step, whereby there are several candidates for the third Cato: (1.) Marcus Porcius Cato, son of Cato Licinianus, consul 118 BC, (2.) his brother Gaius Porcius Cato, consul 114 BC, or (3.) Marcus Porcius Cato, son of Cato Salonianus (a son of Cato the Elder by his second wife) and father of Cato the Younger. Is this the point where I made a mistake?

    EDIT:
    Hoorayy! The question 4 was dropped after all and I have my aratiuncula to enjoy!

    Wouldn't be better to ask one question each time, then people can't copy answers off other people (I didn't copy off V.T. , but I looked over afted I had answered and saw how how similar the answers were.)
