Publius Ventidius Bassus- wow!!!
#1
So this fellow is led through Rome as a boy as a captured slave with his mother, rises through the ranks in Casesar's army, eventually takes COMMAND of a legion, goes to Parthia and cleans up Crassus' mess (akin to Germanicus several decades later in Germania) and has his own Triumph sponsored by Antony- through the same streets he was led several decades earlier as a boy slave.

The ancient world is beyond comparison with amazing larger than life personalities.

Would be interesting to discover what ever happened to him.

Hi,
