About This Quiz

The Roman Empire was a fun time. Despite the many, many wars, it was a time of revelry, excess and lots of fun. But even the best partiers in human history had to work and get paid, so they could spend most of it on their partying habits. Do you know what you'd be doing for money during that time? If you want to find out, take this quiz!

Would you be a politician? Back in those days, politicians were a dime a dozen, or at least everyone wanted to be one because of the benefits. Would you have been an actor? Would you have been renowned across the empire for your heartwrenching performances? Or would you have been an augur? Would your job have been to make predictions of the things that were to come? Could you have foretold that you would have taken this quiz in the future? Or would your fate have been to become a doctor? Would you have been the one responsible for healing the empire's sick and needy? 

If you want to find out what your role would have been, take this quiz! Would you have been the one causing pain, healing it, predicting it or hiding it? Let's find out!
