“Quite a wonderful morning for sport. Wouldn’t you say, Quinarius?”

“I have read the billing, Denarius. Nothing remarkable. In fact, I attend these events for appearances. We waste so much time watching from the balcony when we should be legislating from the forum.”

“Oh, posh! Talk about boring. Care to place a friendly wager on today’s entertainment? Think of it as spice on otherwise stale meat.”

“Denarius, Denarius… My, we are awaiting the first contest, and already jangling your ‘coin sack’. Very good, the usual?”

“Certainly, Quinarius. Yes, the gates are open. The players have taken the arena floor.”

“By the gods, these matches are quite unfair, Denarius. That poor slave stood no chance against a veteran such as Balbo.”

“You may have a point, sir. However, the slave died with his eyes open not closed. I won.”

“As agreed, you may sleep with my wife tonight. Quinarius, what is the gladiator shouting at us?”

“I don’t know. I don’t speak ‘barbarian.’”
