No. 43. I'm Asparagus! No, I'm Asparagus!

Sticking to the tenuous Roman slave theme, Romans may well have grown, prepared and eaten asparagus; the vegetable of Kings. I made that last bit up. I set them up on the top of a red file box that was lying around the forum somewhere and set my faithful Quintus about holding a strong rush torch to light the piece. I'm lucky to have Quintus; he's from one of the Gaulish tribes who are world leaders in asparagus lighting.
