Synopsis:
In ancient Rome, Emperor Augustus disguises himself as a beggar along with an actor friend. They sit upon the steps talking. Eventually, Augustus reveals that prophesies predicted two possible paths for the future of the Roman Empire. He chose one path, and burned the prophesies that told of the other. Augustus is clearly haunted by a shocking secret revealed at the end of the story.
