: Tune in as we flashback to the Siege of Syracuse, visiting the Mad Scientist of Sicily and his space-age death contraptions! After that, we’ll touch base with Cato the Elder and see how he’s been holding up since the end of the Second Punic War. (Spoiler: he’s sad it’s over.) Finally, we’ll see how Rome concludes her longstanding rivalry with Carthage, and what the cost is to her republican soul! No worries, though…Carthago delenda est!
