Product description

The year is AD 102, and Iliona is looking forward to a sea voyage away from her home in Greece. But when the ship is attacked by pirates, Iliona finds herself orphaned and sold as a slave in Rome. At first she is frantic with grief. But the family she works for are kindly, and Iliona soon discovers that the teeming city at the heart of the Empire is a fascinating place. Read Iliona’s vividly illustrated diary to watch the Roman army return in triumph from war against the Dacians; to visit Nero’s baths; witness gladiators fighting in the famous amphitheatre; attend a sumptuous banquet – and celebrate on the day that she is granted her freedom! Told in vibrant text and striking artwork, and packed with fascinating insights into Roman life, this book includes substantial notes about Iliona’s world and how we know about it.

“A lively and revealing look at the Roman Empire.” Junior Education

“Beautifully illustrated and packed full of interesting facts.” School Librarian
