Carthage Must be Destroyed
Taxes have risen and there doesn't seem to be as much money around for wine, villas and boys with good complexions. The Senate is under pressure to make Rome rich again.
Consul Cato is a practical man and knows that the old enemy, Carthage, is the solution. After all, Carthage has too much money. Carthage is stockpiling weapons. Carthage is a threat to Rome. Defenda Est Carthago - Carthage must be destroyed!
Cato thinks Senator Gregor is just the man to put the wheels into motion. He's practised in the art of having just enough power to guarantee privilege without ever having so much that it brings responsibility. Gregor is about to encounter the sharp end of politics.
