Storyline

As they try to reach Caesar in Greece, the shipwrecked Vorenus and Pullo confront an unexpected dilemma. Back in Rome, Atia again sends Octavia to beg protection from Servilia, who complies readily to encourage her growing friendship with Octavia. As they prepare their counterattack against Caesar, Pompey's Republicans begin to squabble over both the anticipated spoils and the method of finishing Caesar off. Niobe's sister Lyde comes back to see her and comforts her over Vorenus's disappearance. Badly outnumbered, Caesar and Antony make their stand at Pharsalus. On his arrival in Egypt, Pompey is greeted by a Roman veteran. Written by Tom D.

Lucius Septimus mentions that he 'has to earn his salt'. In Roman times, wages were often paid out in salt ('sal' in Latin), and it is where the modern term 'salary' comes from. See more »

Goofs

Pompey's wife Cornelia was not with him at - nor on the run with him after - the Battle of Pharsalus. He rendezvoused with his wife Cornelia and his son Sextus Pompeius on the island of Mytilene, and from there went to Egypt, where he was assassinated as soon as he stepped ashore. See more »
