Well, I visited the ruins of Pompei a few years back and there was a decidedly Roman-style temple to Isis there. Might be able to dig up a few photos! But I did't know she was worshipped all the way u ...

I have the Dutch translations of Jacq, and can’t find grammatical errors. He reads quite easy. Perhaps the France language, especially in literature, is more difficult to translate to English?. Or ...
