    If you look up the word "forum" you get something like -

    1. the marketplace or public square of an ancient Roman city, the center of judicial and business affairs and a place of assembly for the people.

    2. a court or tribunal: the forum of public opinion.

    3. an assembly, meeting place, etc., for the discussion of questions of public interest.

    4. the Forum, the forum in the ancient city of Rome.

    Stafford is like Rome but without the Sistine Chapel, and we do have a forum. It's good to talk!

    The Ancient city of Rome, as in, Rome being THE actual ancient City.

    The way you're thinking of it, it would really need to say, "The Ancient City in Rome."

    We need to elect a raving madman to stand on a box and shout things out to people coming out of the guildhall.
