RnB008 “Short Back & Sides” Roman Soldier & Prisoner
A different prisoner and a different Roman soldier. As the captured warrior is made to lie prostrate under him the Roman Legionary appears to be waiting for instructions from a superior as to the prisoner’s fate.
In general, warrior prisoners of Rome could expect either ‘a life as a galley-slave’… ‘a brutal and bloody future in the Arena’… or perhaps ‘a relatively swift end’. None of the options pleasant!
