Did the Romans punctuate their writing?
I would say, no. The Romans did not follow our rules of English grammar. Any direct Roman writing that I have seen had no punctuation. The beginning and ending of sentences depended on the relationship of the words in the sentence. All the punctuation seems to have been an addition by scholars to make reading easier.

Who wrote the rules about writing a detective story?
When we talk about the rules of writing, what we really mean are the compilations of guidelines and advice that are believed to be true based on the opinions and experience of writers, readers, editors, and teachers. The rules of writing detective stories or any type of writing are opinions based on what works and what is considered acceptable. Some rules change as culture and usage change. Some rules are so basic that they have been applied since the beginning of story telling. Writers break rules at their own risk. The risk is losing reader interest and enjoyment of the story. Only skillful writers can bend the rules and still tell a successful story.
