Andrew Wallace-Hadrill joins us to talk all about Pompeii’s oft-forgotten neighbour.

Octavian helps Titus Pullo investigate his suspicions. Attia engages in some light public vandalism. Servilia engages in some light public cursing. Caesar chases Pompey out of Italy. We are also joined by special guest Parvez Qadir, who plays the role of Tanjit.
