  • The Empire of Han is a long way to the east - the Celts are much closer and shipping costs are more affordable for the citizens of Rome. I was assured by the treacherous Celts that their cloth would be identical to that produced by the Han with only slight variations from the authentic product - minor defects in color and quality were the only difference -- I was assured of that !!!

    I'll certainly have a word with the Celts - by express mail - as soon as we master the art of writing - rest assured this matter will be dealt with in a most expeditious manner -- as soon as time permits.

        • You confuse me for a common street vendor selling delicasies, although to some the bulls pistle might be a delicasie, although hard to chew.

          • Cleitus, I think I won't have "The Special of the Day" after all. The new suppliers to your establishment seem to be dubious at best. I would probably be poisoned by the vittles they are offering!

            Just bring me some more mulsum, that should quench my thirst before my journey to Armenia.

            • Oooo, this looks like a nice place. Does anyone know where I can stable my horse? Parthian horses need gentle care so please do not send me to just any stable. I'll need a fresh blanket, a rub down fresh water and a nice tub of oats. For my horse , he has no name.

                  • Ahhh, such freindly people! Thank you thank you.

                    I'll have a mild beer shaken not stired, add a slice of lime if you please, no olives as I do not wish to have the greasy skin you barbarians have, no offense, please to wash the mug first as I have cleaner standards than you I'm sure, no offense, serve it to me from the left as I wish to keep my weapons hand ready to punish any of the many local thieves you have allowed to roam at will, no offense, and please not to speka so close to my face, your breath offends me. No offense.

                            • Ah -- a stranger among us - born here by a Parthian steed of dubious ownership. Be careful stranger -- you are addressing Gaius - captain and commander of the Praetorian Guards -- he has over 5,000 men available to pick off the little crawly things and feed them to those with whom he is displeased
