It's strange how it happens so often : 2 minutes after my last post, I solved 3 of the queries I had raised. No such luck with the last 2.
19Ac What of Roman Britain's capital? (4) ?U?D Looks like QUID or QUOD, but I don't see why. 26Dn Clown losing hat : which you like? (3) A?Y Looks like (Z)ANY, but why?

Any = whichever you like, as in "pick a card, any card"

19 Quid - capital, money
19a Quid - Latin "what" & Britain's capital; money
26d (z)Any - clown, losing hat

26 Zany losing hat. Take the z off. Hat usually means first letter.
Question Author
I understood the parsing of (Z)ANY, when I asked Why? The Why was directed at "which you like?" not the parsing.
Any = whichever you like, as in "pick a card, any card"
