Simon Elliot returns to talk about his new book. What constituted special forces in ancient Rome? And how did they operate?

Abandoned with nothing but a scrap of cloth which bears her name, a baby cries on the forest floor. The goddesses Artemis and Athena watch in astonishment as a mother bear, grieving for her own lost cub , nurses the tiny newborn. On the same day, the Fates visit a newborn prince, and predict a terrible end to his life. What will become of these two babes?

In the final episode covering Euripides’ Orestes… sh*t goes down. So much of it. Murder, mayhem, weirdly helpful gods!

Jean MacIntosh Turfa, The Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar, in Nancy Thomson de Grummond and Erika Simon (eds.), The Religion of the Etruscans. University of Texas Press, 2006. (Kindle edition)
