'Gaius Agrippa Aelius'

Gaius Agrippa Aelius had been sent to Athens for a number of years, on Imperial business.
During that time his wife had given birth to his only son, Marcus Gaius Aelius.

'The Death of Gaius Agrippa Aelius'

The pirates had found Gaius' papers, identifying him as a Roman official.
Having been hunted down for years by the Imperial navy, the pirates were intent on wreaking their revenge on Gaius. He was unceremoniously stripped naked, emasculated, and his severed genitals were tied round his neck. He was then hung by his wrists from the main mast of the pirates ship.
Young Marcus, who was on deck with the Armenian slaves and the dancing troupe, was forced to witness his father's humiliation, and listen to Gauius squealing as he was brutally emasculated.

'Pirate Galley Docked at Crete'

Then, with the cargo ship in tow, the galley made off towards Crete, where the pirates had a safe harbor. Eventually, when the harbor at Crete came into sight, the pirates cut down Gaius, and threw him into the sea. As the Galley and the cargo ship docked in the small harbor, the pirates organized slaves to unload the cargo of Pentelic marble, and the bronze statues.
Those items would later be transferred to another ship, and would be sold in Alexandria.
The Armenian slaves, the boy dancers, and Marcus were then unloaded from the Galley, and placed in guarded pens, where they would later be sorted, and decisions would be made as to where they would be sold.

'Markos is Sold'
adapted from a painting by Jean-Leon Gerome

Soon the bidding began, and it gradually became quite frantic, as some of the potential buyers had set their heart on acquiring the handsome youngster. Then, quite unexpectedly, a young man at the back of the agitated group of bidders made a single bid. Immediately the room fell silent.
The bid was of such an amount that no other person in the room could possibly conceive of equaling, or exceeding it  - or even approaching it, for that matter.

'On the Road to Baiae'

The freedman had a muscular young slave with him - presumably a bodyguard - who rode beside the carriage during the journey.
Unknown to Markos, the destination to which he would be traveling was Baiae - a considerable distance from Brundisium - and so they traveled all that afternoon, stopping once in the early evening for a light meal, and then traveling on into the night.

'Punishment of the Runaway Slave'

"This is the punishment area.", Nerva announced, solemnly.
And it was quite obvious to young Marcus, because, in one corner a naked young slave was tied to a cross-beam, and impaled through his anus. He was groaning pitifully, jerking up and down, literally 'fucking' himself, in a hopeless attempt to lift himself off the thick wooden post which was, by then deep in his guts. To add to his humiliation, the poor lad was horribly excited as a result of being forcibly penetrated.
Nerva explained, "He tried to run away. - Went to Neápolis, but no one there would remove his slave collar. They all knew where he had come from, because the collar was thick silver, and he was soon reported, found, and sent back here.
My lord had no other choice but to subject him to this punishment. If slaves are not punished then why should they obey their lord ?"

'Markos in the Bath'

They returned down the staircase, and turned into another corridor, and through a door.
The bath - even the bath for the high ranking slaves -  in the Villa Auri was as palatial as the rest of the building, and Markos wondered what the bath used by the owner would be like.

Markos' Silver Slave Collar

Nerva spoke in a serious manner to Markos.
"This collar, which is very valuable, will be riveted round your neck.
If you were ever so foolish as to try and run away, you would find it very hard to get it removed.
Vulcan has a very special skill in these matters, and anyone else trying to remove the rivet would probably seriously injure, or even kill you - it's not worth the risk.
If my lord ever deigns to free you, then Vulcan - or if Vulcan is no longer here, then his apprentice, will remove it safely, and it will be a gift to you.
