I assume their Subiaco type is appearing toward the end of your essay?

I try to make a timeline and this would be the point where I split it in 2 directions.

Just for an added boost, call it the "type road," as that is what it was. FYI: Subiaco also now means "sanctuary." Probably the most exciting point in type history. Perfect choice.
