Slightly too long for a #WIP (a thing on Twitter where you post 140 characters worth of a work in progress to get feedback) so thought I would post it here.
Just heard that my order to let Sextus Papinius go was somehow misconstrued as “execute him.” Honestly, communications in this place are a nightmare. I’m not being racist, but I think it’s because there are slaves from all over the empire and frankly a lot of their Latin is absolutely appalling. Anyway, long story short, Papinius is no more.

Now that made me smile! I’m sure it was an innocent misunderstanding .. could happen to anybody.
