Caesar pursued Pompey to Greece but the tide has turned and it's Caesar who is on the run. He contacts Mark Antony, who he left in charge in Rome, to come and join him with the 13th Legion but Antony seems to be in no hurry. Vorenus has re-enlisted in Antony's Legion and he and Niobe have begun to renew their marital relationship. The presence of Niobe's sister is the only sour note in their house. Pullo meanwhile continues to train young Octavian in the use of arms and the boy's mother Atia is so pleased with his development that she decides he should take another step to manhood and orders Pullo to take him to a brothel so he can have his first sexual experience. Atia also continues with her scheming ways and believing that Caesar is done for, decides she had better make friends with Servilia. Written by
Did You Know?
Vorenus rejoins the legions as an "evocatus". This was the Latin term for a soldier in the Roman army who had served out his time and obtained a discharge (Latin, "missio") but had voluntarily enlisted again at the invitation of the consul or other commander. The position was a plum one, as they were essentially high-ranking officers, and did not have to take part in manual labor duties. See more
