A Roman commander makes a stupid mistake and is brought down, not by a Phoenician or Egyptian, but by his own horse.
About this creation
A highly decorated Roman officer makes a rookie mistake of trying to grab his horse from behind while the horse is grazing. The horse doesn't care how many feathers you have in your plume or how many emperors you've killed. It just wants to eat without being approached from behind.
A nearby sentry can't help laughing at his C.O. That right there is the mark of a man about to be punished Roman style.
This man can't even stand up. Those teeth...
"No. Let me graze"
The kick. All of the build is here. We have a small Roman outpost/fort in the top corner, and a nice road being built along the bottom. There are some grazing areas outside the fort for horses.
Nearby road workers busy building roads across Asia Minor (Modern day Turkey).
The view from the outpost/fort.
This roman guard, chosen to guard the road workers, can't help from rolling over in laughter. The road itself in pictures. "All roads lead to Rome."
The tents in the camp along with the ladder.
The C.O. goes flying.
