The Fiddle Didn't Exist in Ancient Rome

The Great Fire of Rome was ignited on this date, 1,950 years ago. Some accounts blame Emperor Nero for starting the fire, while others say he just took advantage of the aftermath to remake Rome to his liking.

True Comics #62, July 1947

This sounds like a job for Superman!
