About the Author

Marcus Sidonius Falx is a Roman of noble birth, whose family have kept slaves for generations. After serving with distinction in the legions, he retired to manage his substantial estates. He now divides his time between his country properties and his luxury villa on the Esquiline hill overlooking Rome. He has employed Dr Jerry Toner, Fellow and Director of Studies in Classics, Churchill College, Cambridge University, to set his work in context, and persuaded Professor Mary Beard to write a foreword.
