In Rome, the Arch of Titus has a chain across the underpass to disallow people from passing, because that is supposedly a re-enactment of the triumphant Roman soldiers returning home from conquering Israel.

People just love to get worked up over crap.

You might want to have a look at MOOC (essentially online courses). Many of them you can audit for free, even if they keep 'encouraging' you to purchase a certificate. I have yet to find any that deal specifically with Greek or Latin learning but there are several on other aspects of classical studies and will help to round out your education and inform you on the context of what you are reading elsewhere. These are all courses I have taken in general order of how interesting or useful I felt they were.
