I've noticed something interesting on Aquila, that it is like Greece,

here's how I know

  1. you know in Achilles heel that Achilles was shot by an arrow and in troy it says that EAGilles fallen by parisss the firebrand

2. Knossos was a modern town in Athens

3. Hercules was a roman god of strength and he was the son of the roman king of the gods which I think is Jupiter which the greek king was zeus

these are interesting finds and if you find any more then comment below

your close, and you have decent knowledge of Greek history, but your also missing a decent bit. Ulysses the eagle is a nod to the odyssey, but in roman mythology the hero of the odyssey was named Ulysses, not Odysseus. Aquila made it clear that they had a emperor. Greece never once had a true emperor. also, gladiators were a roman thing. its clearly a mash-up of the two ancient cultures, using bits and pieces of each. finally, if it was solely Greek, then why would they have Praetorian? only Romans had those, the Greek never had a truly unified army, with any substantial hierarchy.
