Readers will learn why two best friends had to battle each other in a gladiatorial fight, why Cleopatra allowed herself to be wrapped in a rug, and why people should avoid eating geese. You will be right there as conspiracies are concocted and secrets are overheard. Whenever the Romans fight or celebrate, chaos is not far behind…
