I recall a superb roman-era DBA campaign that was posted on the old Fanaticus website called "First Man in Rome". Sadly, I do not remember the author's name (McNaughton perhaps?) It was quite elaborate, captured the political nuances of the times, and although I never played it I was always impressed by it. Now that I have the time to develop the campaign world and play it, I can no longer find the rules anywhere.
You might find something in Slingshot #243. Not sure if it has all the rules, but there were 3 pages devoted to Jim Naughton's campaign. I don't have a copy, but someone here might. Or you could get the context by reading Colleen McCullough's book "First Man in Rome".

Seneca says luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. I think sacrificing bad dice to Mithras works better, but I seem to go through a lot of dice.
