homer: the OG greek literature. so valid that the greeks sometimes deified him. had some extremely sexy hexameter verse but does lose points on account of probably not being a real person. 8/10

aristotle: some kind of misogynist bastard who doesn’t know shit about anything. student of plato which is about the least amount of valid you can be. get fucked 0/10
catullus: just a bisexual disaster trying to live his life and get laid 10/10
caesar: a war criminal and bastard -5/10
