Great start to the season. So will this be the final season or will they have one more? One of the bad things about stories based on historical figures is that they all have to end.
Caesar won a Civic Crown before then. That meant he was in the front line and save a cohort from certain death. The cohort had to nominate him for the honor.
Then there were the pirates. Before Spartacus, he was captured by pirates. He made them double the ransom as he told them they didn't realize how important he would be one day. Then he promised to find them and crucify every one of them. He did. Once ransom paid, he raised a navy, found them, captured them, and crucified them all.
Does that sound like a dandy or fopish type?
Sulla did say he saw in him many Marius's.
Caesar had his bodily hair plucked and shaved on a regular basis.
Read the Suetonius and Plutarch accounts of him online. Very entertaining.
