Wonderful episode again. I’ve been looking forward to what happens in the next episode for months – winning back one of the three great metropoleis of the classical empire is grand, even if times have changed. If you haven’t chosen a title for the episode yet, might I suggest “Welcome Back To Antioch” to tie up with your first Byx Stories episode and also as a cue to disabuse starry eyed romantics like myself about what the classical metropolis looked like 300-odd years after it was lost (not to mention sacks, plague, earthquake etc).
