Answer:  HAVE ADD IT

(A brilliant stinky pun!  I love it!  When I was a kid, the math nerds all had pocket protectors.  Then, they all had pocket sized calculators.  I have no idea what they use today.  But, in ancient Rome, I’m sure they all walked around with their abacuses!

Our favorite word-nerd, David L. Hoyt, did not just give us one new clue word today, but two!  Both “mantra” and “sentry”  will need to be added to the ralis95 world famous clue word database.  I’m confident that the big boss man is up to the task!  I saw “sentry” right away, but I had to come back to solve “mantra”.  Three of the four jumbles came up as new, with only “nayhd” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  The quotation marks, and the leading nature of the clue/question, gave me the answer.

Wonderful historical cartoon.  Jeff has squeezed in some popular Rome attractions into the background.  Fun tunics, togas and sandals too.  A fabulous Friday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
