Summary

This patch:

  • vowel length for consistency
  • remove useless tooltip from rome_arch.xml
  • add specific names to arch, stable, small tower, workshop
  • correct specific names for army camp, corral (because plural in Classical Latin), large tower, siege wallset
  • replace technically correct aedes Martis/Vestae (literally temple of Mars/Vesta; genitive) with aedes Martialis/Vestalis (temple dedicated to Mars/Vesta; adjective), because of flamen Martialis and virgo Vestalis
  • removed unnecessary adjectives from centurio, healer, legionary, trader
  • expanded hero names, because there tend to be more than one Roman with the same name
Test Plan

Check for inconsistencies.

Yes: pontifex means “priest”, specifically a member of the collēgium pontificium, which was headed by the pontifex maximus. The Augustan term pontifex minor appears to be equivalent to the Republican scrība pontificius.
Sulla reportedly increased the number of pontificēs, implying there were fewer before then, which makes me wonder if we shouldn't use the word sacerdōs “priest(ess)” instead.
Or even better, switch to medīcus “doctor”; for comparison athen and spart have iatrós “surgeon”.

Yes: traditionally Roman society was divided into patricians (who could trace their fathers back to the leading families of the Roman kingdom) and the plebeians (everyone else).
Commerce was frowned upon by the Roman upper-class (who were typically wealthy land-owners), who considered trading and making profits as something dirty, similar to prostitution. Therefore merchants were typically plebeians, freedmen, or foreigners.
