Come on! I'm Ubian, the Ities were first, and we were the first migrants there.

the Ities told us. And we came. We built them the Agippa Bath and made the Dionysos Mosaic for them. Whilst the rest of you bc. savages still were tree dwellers or worse.

You are not a true Iti. Otherwise you'd be proud of Cologne. One of the best things Romans ever did. Even better than Eur, their 2nd try at making a good town.

Cologne was really nice, unfortunately, it was bombed to rubble in WWII. Thankfully, the dome survived. But it gets better since the quality of modern architecture improved compared to the 60s and 70s.
