Consider a simple crossword puzzle formed of four five-letter words, joined at the corners by their initial and final letters. For example:
B A S I C
D E B I T
In classic crossword style, the first word across (BASIC) would be 1 across, BREAD would be 1 down, CADET would be 2 down, and DEBIT would be 3 across.
Now, consider a similar crossword with the following clues:
1. Caesar, for one
3. Grout and mortar guy
1. _____ whale
2. Anagram of "dinar"
There are two independent solutions. Find both.

My solution was the same as fwaff's except instead of Roman I had reign. Roman is probably better, as that particular Roman was Caesar, while the particular reign was Caesar's and there is not "'s" in the clue.
