Yet another great quiz in the series, but I have a few remarks: It's the Vesuvius, not Vesuvuis, Hadrian wall still existS, with S, and Attila was, not Attilla war. Maybe accept simply Hanging Gardens for the last question

Thank you Geoguy, for pointing out my minor spelling errors, I did the quiz somewhat on the fly, heck I just did G and H today. Your comments on my last two quizzes motivated me to do some more! It's good to see that some people actually appreciate Ancient History. More Ancient History by Letter quizzes are on the way so please stick around.
