Enough of these tests, it sounds like James' kind of thing.

Marcus Tullius being my witness, this was far too difficult a quiz. Only the first four.
Ah, if only I think of those days when I got all five ants correctly at nourishing obscurity ...

5 out of six, although I guessed Cicero. I should have remembered datterini but didn't.

Sean Jeating said...

Ha, at second blush my eyes detect the acrostic, or should I rather say, the hidden ant? :))))

Sorry you don't like them, Ellee. Four is good, Sean! Well done, jmb.

100% without the highlighting but Info.co.uk and your own blog search helped!

Well at least I got the easy one right ;-) I think I need to come and visit to get to expand my education :-)

Ah, be kind, people. There'll be a quiz over my way this evening but harder than this one. :)

Yikes, James, I didn't do well on this one, let alone a harder one from you! ;)

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Well done, Lola! Ah, that was a trick of mine, Sean! You should definitely come and visit, cherrypie. Agree that's a fiendish one over at your place, James. Tell him, Leslie!
