This is more an observation than a question, but I decided it was time to share it with you.

We've discussed before the truth of Goliath's saying in "M. I. A." how "human problems become gargoyle problems" - which certainly showed itself several times in the series, such as the struggles over the Scottish throne in the 10th and 11th century affecting the Scottish gargoyles. But more recently, it occurred to me that human conflicts and their consequences, even when they didn't directly involve gargoyles, could impact them.

The example I noted was the struggle over the Roman world between Julius Caesar's assassination in 44 B.C. and the fall of Egypt in 30 B.C., ending with Caesar Augustus firmly in control of Rome. Its outcome definitely affected the gargoyles; I can't imagine Mark Antony and Cleopatra being as shocked by gargoyles waking up from their stone sleep without clothes as Augustus was, certainly not enough to order the Roman Magus to cast the Spell of Humility over them.
