The Ancients is a game set on Earth. In 200BC. The Roman Republic is slowly taking the mediterranean by storm, the second of the punic wars has just ended, yet the war against Macedon has just begun - and this is just in Italy. Travel and explore the land and peoples, from the Lusitanians of the Iberian Peninsula to the ancient Ainu of Japan.
I've attempted to draw the actual symbols from the remainings of the Lapis Niger to the in-game version, visible in this image.
I've added an altar, so that players can pay tribute.
Romans believed the Lapis Niger marked either the grave of the first king of Rome Romulus, or the spot he was murdered by the senate he put into place; the grave of Hostus Hostilius, father of King Tullus Hostilius; or the location where Faustulus, foster father of Romulus, fell in battle.
The earliest writings referring to this spot regard it as a suggestum where the early Kings of Rome would speak to the crowds at the forum and to the senate.
