    This is more like a quiz, since you never mention the Milvian Bridge and “in hoc signo vinces.” (The latter an especially tough rhyme in the limerick’s metrical scheme.)

    I’ve actually been to the Milvian Bridge. There was an extensive description of the various versions of the bridge that have been there at different points in history, but nothing (that I could find) about the battle.
