This might need to be fixed too

Hoj, do you think you could fix this one too? And then fix the edits in Augustus Caesar with the br tags that were inserted to make it format 'right'? --Mtur 23:57, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Incomplete template: Several things need to be added

I would like to add a few links to this template, however it is semi-protected. Would someone please add a link to the Byzantine Empire in the template box? Even though the culture of the Byzantine Empire would diverge from classical Roman culture as the middle ages progressed, it was a direct legal continuation of the Roman Empire, and throughout its history, it was referred by its inhabitants as the Roman Empire. Also, would someone add Trajan to the list of "Great Romans"? The Roman Empire reached its greatest territorial extent during his reign. Also, why not add a few of the Christian church fathers to that list? They were Roman, and they were also great. Thanks! --1990'sguy (talk) 21:26, 9 September 2016 (EDT)

I addition to this, Justinian and Diocletian should be added. The first ruled the Byzantine Empire, which was the Roman Empire in every respect other than the fact that he did not rule from Rome, and even though Diocletian committed the most violent and fanatical persecution of Christians in Roman history (and thus was not great), he still had a very large influence in Roman politics for a long time to come. --1990'sguy (talk) 10:13, 13 September 2016 (EDT)
Justinian is usually counted as an emperor of the "Eastern Roman Empire." The empire is called Byzantine after the language switched from Latin to Greek under Heraclius.
It's redundant to put the word "Roman" inside the template if the title of the template is "Ancient Rome." I'd re-label the eras as "monarchy", "republic", and "empire." PeterKa (talk) 20:07, 17 September 2016 (EDT)
I agree. However, by the time Justinian became emperor, the Western Roman Empire had been long gone, so the eastern empire was the only Roman Empire. Regardless, both "Eastern Roman Empire" and "Byzantine Empire" are modern historiographical terms, and he would have known himself as the "Roman Emperor". --1990'sguy (talk) 21:08, 17 September 2016 (EDT)
The historians have established conventions on these things and I don't see a good reason not to follow them. The fact that Justinian is classified as Eastern Roman rather than as Byzantine is all the more reason to put him on this table. Aurelian, Mark Antony, Scipio Africanus, and Cicero probably belong on it as well. Washington certainly looks out of place here. PeterKa (talk) 05:59, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
I added Cicero, and you can add the rest if you wish. I'm just worried that the list is getting too long for this template. If there is a way to condense the list of great Romans, what would be great. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:04, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
