Citizens of Rome Gather round.

Welcome to Gordion. Now Gordion

was famous for his knot.

The oracles predicted that who

could untie the knot...

would conquer the whole world.

Many came from far and wide but

none succeeded,

until one day the mighty Alexander

arrived

Alexander, descended from the mighty

God Apollo.

Advance!

Apollo enlightened Alexander

and showed

him how to untie the knot.

Sulla has returned to Rome to

establish order.

He declares that the innocents

have no reason to fear.

But that those guilty of crimes against

him shall be most severely punished.

The men whose names are written on

these lists are declared outlaws.

They have no rights as citizens

henceforth they may be killed on sight

Anyone who takes it upon himself to

kill any of these men...

will be considered a friend of the state..

and shall be rewarded with the properties

and possessions these outlaws leave behind.

The biggest crime under Roman law.

Mother?

- Cornelia?

Mother?

Where is my wife?

- at her fathers.

Grandmother The soldiers are coming

- Julia stay with her.

Sulla has taken the city with his army

He has made lists hundreds of people are on them

Are you?

- No my wife's father is.

Julia stay in the house.

Don't go.

- Father where are you going?

To get your mother.

Is he not on the list?

He's the one you want over there.

- Right.

Have you heard?

- Yes we have to hurry.

What's the point running away

might as well die right here.

Please go.

- - She's right Cinna We must leave now.

Cinna hurry.

Go.

- Please, father.

Go Hurry!

Go.!

Please Cornelia, run!

He has helped Cinna to escape

Give me your name.

It's Caesar, from the house of Julia.

Arrest him.

No please no!

Are you Julius Caesar?

-Yes.

This way...

This way.

That is not negotiable.

Who is he?

Julius Caesar.

Nephew to Marius...

You have unfortunate ancestry.

If you think it's unfortunate

to be descendent from the Gods.

Which God is that?

- The Julia descendent from Aeneas,

Who was...

- The son of Venus, yes yes.

I recall Marius making such claims.

There are many people these days who

claim to be descendents from the Gods.

We have a crest which proves it..

I believe you can have them

fashioned in the market place...

...for a couple of dinars.

Why did you ask to see me?

Your mother...

She came to see me.

Did she ask you to spare my life?

And what you agreed?

Well I promised that I would consider it.

And I'm supposed to be grateful to you?

- No.

To you we are old friends.

- You killed a lot of old friends...

True, true true.

Old friends of the day become

fresh enemies at night.

What do you want in

exchange for my life?

Why do you think I want anything in Exchange?

And like you don't give things

away for free.

I'm not a man without compassion.

I will help you if I can.

First you must understand the

gravity of the crime.

Cinna was my greatest enemy.

And you helped him to escape.

Did he?

Of course not.

He escaped my soldiers only to be

killed by one of his servants.

My wife?

- She's well.

I leave women to their health.

And since you are only the son of

Cinna by marriage,

I intend to leave you to yours.

If...?

If you divorce your wife.

Well?

No I refuse.

- You refuse to divorce your wife

Even though it may cost you your life?

My wife is my teacher.

She's more clever than I am, She's

more honest than I am,

She's a more compelling argument

than I am or you are.

Or your office is.

I won't divorce her.

That is my answer.

- Ah, Pompey...

What can we do with men such as this?

I don't know weather to embrace
