P. 9. The page reference for Spartacus's uprising is p. 89.

P. 36. It's Engineer skill, not Engineering, and the page reference should be to p. B60.

P. 37. There is no default for the Hiking skill.

Pp. 39-40. The incomes listed in the Jobs Table are weekly rather than monthly. Multiply them by 4 to be consistent with other Jobs Tables.

P. 41. Replace the Gladius paragraph with:

Gladius: A stabbing shortsword, issued to all Roman legionaries. Used with Shortsword skill. Optionally, legionary training gives +1 for thrusting attacks and -1 to skill for swinging attacks.

Under Armor, add the following sentence to end of the first paragraph:

"It is unlikely that Roman legionaries wore leather armor, though the statistics for leather versions of their segmented armor are fine for an alternate setting."

P. 42. Replace the Fuxina paragraph with:

Fuxina: This was a trident wielded by Roman Gladiators. It is used with Spear skill at no penalty. Those who are unfamiliar with it (see sidebar, p. B43) have a -2 to use it until they have sparred for 8 hours. The three points and extra weight give it some properties different from a spear: opponents are at -1 to Dodge a fuxina but +1 to Parry or Block (the Dodge penalty can facilitate catching fish with this weapon!). It does thrust+3 damage one-handed and thrust+4 two-handed. Armor DR is doubled against the fuxina, and it cannot be hurled. Weight is 5 lbs.

P. 45, sidebar. In the second paragraph, Alexander the Great died at the age of 33 in 323 B.C., not 324 B.C.

Pp. 100-101. Under Gaming a Race, replace Driver (Chariot) with Teamster (Horse). Under Modifiers, change Driving to Teamster.

P. 110. In the third paragraph in the sidebar, the last page reference, about Tiberius Gracchus, should be to p. 47.
