The Goths are leaving Roman territory, and while they successfully sacked some cities there has been no lasting damage to the provinces – but the same can’t be said for the reputation of the Emperor, Decius. He rides with his troops to confront them in battle, becoming the first Roman emperor to die at the hands of a foreign enemy. Guest: Associate Professor Caillan Davenport (Senior Lecturer, Roman History, Macquarie University/Humboldt Research Fellow, Goethe University, Frankfurt)

Dr Uri Yiftach, Tel Aviv University, joins the show to share what law was like in the Ptolemaic & Roman Egyptian periods.
