Factual error: In a brief scene showing a map of Europe as it was in 79 AD, complete with Latin. Rome is displayed with the Flavian Amphitheater (Roman Colosseum), however, Pompeii was destroyed in 79 AD and the Colosseum did not open until 80 AD and was not finished to look as the Colosseum we know it and as shown on the map in the movie, until many years after that under the rule of Domitian, the brother of Titus.Raykidz
