a good bath and scrub, this obvious Greek woman, might even be called a good looker.
Praetor of Illyricum Gaius Valerius
is 26 years old and was born to a family of immigrants from Sparta. At the age of 15 she was given in marriage to a local
mason called Diokles, owner of a prosperous workshop, and had
two children by him: Philippus (10) and Berenike (6). After her
husband was killed when the city was attacked by pirates, Lysandra
found herself forced to take the reins of his business and protect
what was left of her family. She’s 5’6’’ tall, has long dark brown
hair, brown eyes and light olive complexion.
away across the Mare Adriaticum, far from the marble colonnades
of the imposing Forum Romanum and the vast Campus Martius, the
Roman legions detached to secure the protectorate of Illyricum
under the Praetor Gaius Valerius Silius struggle to restablish
peace and order in the battered cities found by the Greeks centuries
the obscure alleys of the maze-like port city of Dyrrhachium, the
population fight to survive the difficult days brought by a recent
pirate attack. In the military Castrum outside the city walls, the
Roman legions plan the rebuilding and romanization of the crumbling
city. In the dark forests of the north, barbarians plot to take
their share of the Roman grain and money poured into the province.
