Chevi Posted July 5, 2019 Share Posted July 5, 2019 May 17, 74CE For someone who worked in the Ludus Magnus, deep down Theodorus had to admit he was not very enthusiastic about the games. Granted, he saw more of the aftermath than the spectacle itself, and watching the gladiators live their day to day life up close made them seem less like legendary heroes and more like... people who lived from day to day. Theo could see the appeal in the combat and the bloodshed, although like most former soldiers, he himself had seen more than enough of both, up close and personal. Luckily, a city like Rome (and there was no other alike) had plenty of other forms of entertainment. Theodorus stared in wonder as he walked into the Circus. It was larger than any building he had ever been in, and was filled with more people he had ever seen in one place, outside of a battlefield. He had heard plenty about the races, and knew what to expect - but expecting and seeing were two very different things. The sights, the sounds, the crowd were all a little overwhelming. Some well-meaning friends told him to bring food and a pillow, which he did, but even the seating was different here than in the Amphitheatrum. He glanced around, a little lost, and almost tripped over his own feet, stumbling against someone walking in nearby.
