Storyboard Text

  • Um Sir, Aries is stealing a sheep from the Colosseum.
  • What do you mean?!  Those sheep are being slaughtered tonight for the opening ceremony of the Colosseum.   Hasn't he seen the punishment for theft?
  • A freeman who had committed theft was flogged and consigned to the injured person; but whether theft became a slave in consequence of this addictio or an adjudicatus, was a matter of dispute among the Ancient Romans.
  • See, right here lies the law of theft.  Aries must be punished for his crime.  He must be sentenced to reimburse 4 times the sheep's worth.
  • Aries, haven't you seen the laws about stealing!  You know that our laws are carved into stone tablets and bronze plaques around here!
  • Umm...Sir...It''s.. not as it seems!
  • Take this one for example.  This tells us the result of having a deformed child.
  • A dreadfully deformed child shall be quickly killed.
  • So Aries, do you understand why it is important to follow the laws that are hung around here?
  • Yes, I do.  I promise to follow all of the rules from now on.
