Louis Jordan discovers that a soldier is a female, Sylvia Syms, in AMAZONS OF ROME

One of the many PEPLUM films which suffers from a lack of recognition because it doesn't have a good title. AMAZONS OF ROME is confusing to many (Youtubers kept asking where are the Amazons...). There are no Amazons in this film. The word "Amazons" in the title is used symbolically. And the original title, LE VERGINI DI ROMA, translates into VIRGINS OF ROME, is also not really good. What would be a better title for this great film?

Oh and the main male character discovering that a boy/man is actually a girl/woman is a popular PEPLUM cliché.
