word order

If two or more adjectives modify a noun is the order of the adjectives intended to denote a certain emphasis or is that splitting hairs? Similarly, what about when a noun has both an adjective preceding and one following? Did the ancient Romans ever use different word orders simply for variety and for no other purpose?
