Andivius Hedulio is falsely denounced to the Emperor Commodius as a conspirator and has to go into hiding in various disguises.

Books could take a more leisurely pace in 1920 and although not without incident this book takes full advantage of that leisurely pace to look at Roman society as people then thought it was probably like. It's rather less brutal and sex-drenched than the picture we are given today. The picture of Commodius is also rather more sympathetic than we are given elsewhere as well. A very enjoyable adventure story. ( )
