Vorenus suffers a major setback as a businessman when the slaves he's invested in die from disease. He visits Eraste Fulman who offers him a job. It isn't exactly what he had in mind however and re-examines the offer of returning to the army which Mark Antony had earlier made to him. Pullo and Octavian track down Niobe's brother-in-law and get him to admit that he was her lover. Julius Caesar become a laughing stock when graffiti artists draw lewd pictures of him and Servilia on the city walls. He has to end his relationship with her to save his marriage to Calpurnia and maintain the political influence of her family. Servilia sets out to find who is responsible for this and vows revenge. Caesar meanwhile has made an offer of truce to Pompey but in the end decides to take his army south to finish him off but finds his foe has fled to Greece. Written by

Caesar's objection to the treaty over Pompey's refusal to meet Caesar has merit. Under Ancient Roman law, no treaty between two warring parties was legal unless the leaders met face-to-face. See more
The name Octavian is incorrect, and should be Gaius Octavius instead. In Latin the suffix '-ianus' indicates the original family name after an adoption, as a result of which the adoptive son received the full name of the adoptive father. Accordingly, C. Octavius changed his name to C. Iulius Caesar Octavianus after being adopted and made sole heir in his grand uncle's will (44 BC). As a matter of fact, the future emperor did not like and never himself used the epithet Octavianus pointing at his not being born a patrician. See more
Poor sad wretch gives everything you ask for. The Senate will ratify your status. You get your triumph, stand for consul, and Pompey will retire to Spain. He'd suck Posca's cock if you asked him to.
Gaius Julius Caesar
Too generous by far. I never thought Pompey would accept such terms.
You think it's a strategem?
Gaius Julius Caesar
I doubt it. He and what few forces he has are trapped and grow weaker by the day. We might crush him at will. But now that he has offered truce, I would look like the worst sort of tyrant if I attack him...
