Two men are standing on top of Aventine Hill.
The first man who is in a toga and sandals spreads a large parchment onto a flat rock then points and gesticulates down the hill as he speaks.
"My dream is to build a city that will resonate throughout history. A city full of amazing buildings both public and private by using such innovative architecture that it will be duplicated by every forthcoming civilisation. I shall call this place Rome".
The second man is also in a toga but he has work boots and is wearing a leather hard hat. His tone is very upbeat and positive.
"Well given the amount of quarries around here and the amount of slave labour we have available I reckon we could build it in a day".
"You're f**king joking ? "
