From a Roman Wall #100


Roman_lady“Ave, good morning, Nellus.” Secundus walked into the Forum Cafeterium.

“Salve, morning. Here is a nice hot caffeinus,” Nellus the Barristarus smiled.

Secundus took his beaker to the tabula where his friends were seated. “At last,” he said. “A little warmth. Winter is ending.”

“Ah yes.” replied Pedantus. “It has been a long cold season but there is a touch of spring green on the trees.”

“We will all be glad of the warmth although it does signal that the culicibus, the mosquitoes, will be biting soon.” Pedantus grumbled a little.

At the entrance Zoophilus the explorer and his slave girl Marti arrived and greeted Nellus. Accepting their beakers of caffeinus, the tall, slender Marti glanced at Nellus’s peplos, her tunic.

Nellus noticed the look and laughingly commented,”Yes. My winter fat is gone. Now I have spring rolls.”
