Foodstuffs

Wrapping up this fun scene: Gaius’s dinner with the imperial family. Pliny’s there. Marcia’s there. Damn, even Apollodorus showed up! šŸ˜€

As you know, Gaius’sĀ favorite snack is stuffed dormice. Not a damn crunchy mousicle in sight at this posh bash in one of the private dining rooms in the palace. Let the snarky sparks fly!

Here’s a nice article on the varieties of food in the ancient Roman world:Ā http://www.historyextra.com/article/food/dormice-ostrich-meat-and-fresh-fish-surprising-foods-eaten-ancient-rome

Next up? The tavern scene. Drunk GaiusĀ hanging out with evenĀ more plasteredĀ veteran soldiers. What a lovely time and place to introduce a new character, Titus Petronius. \o/
