The vast, vast majority of questions here are about contemporary politics, but the help center doesn't seem to include era as a criteria for topicality.

Are questions on ancient politics allowed on this site as long as they meet the other rules of topicality, clarity, etc.? For example, if I have a clear, specific, answerable, and non-antagonistic question about speaking protocol in the Roman Senate in the final years of the Republic, is that on-topic here because it is a question about politics or is it off-topic for failing to be about contemporary politics?
