I've stopped reading chapters above 390. I'll wait until it's over 400 before starting again, that way, one piece will be more exiting
Reading this chapter leads me to the idea that Olvia was a part of Gold Roger's crew. The flashback is set 20 years ago, that is 2 years after Roger's execution. Olvia mentions that she was on a ship. It could easily be Gold Roger's ship - we know that he was at Shandian Poneglyph on Skypiea, and he reached Raftel, where the Rio Poneglyph resides, so his would be a perfect ship for a Poneglyph researcher.
This would also explain the Roger's message on Skypiea: what is the chance that a pirate from East Blue would know how to decipher Poneglyphs? Apparently, it takes many years of study to acquire that ability (unless you are a prodigy like Robin). But there's no reason why that message would have to be personally translated by him: somebody (like Olvia) might do it for him.
Finally, if this is true, I have a nagging feeling that during the final battle Gold Roger made sure Olvia gets away, and that was the true reason why was captured and executed.
BTW, was anything ever told about the rest of Roger's crew?
That thought has been nagging at me as well. Makes even more sense if it's confirmed that Luffy is related to Roger.
