Wow, this is interesting, thanks for the link. Next year, by the way, I plan to take a course in the "history of science in the ancient world" as one of my optional subjects. Like many students in the Arts faculty, I was a complete failure in maths and science at high school, but perhaps, when combined with antiquity, I might even like it :lol:.

Did the ancients know about ristorno and homographical functions? :)

No idea really :wink: .

As for ristorno, you could always look it up in "Banque et affaires dans le monde romain", an introduction to Roman financial techniques by Jean Andreau or almost any other general work on the Roman economy.
