Brother of the Quill
Excuse the nit-picker here. It appears that he is wearing a toga praetexta, with red stripes. This would only be worn by a Senator or Magistrate. A plebeian would wear a toga pura, made of natural, undyed, whitish wool. Also, the toga was mostly worn only a formal wear in public. At home, most would wear a simple tunic (though a toga might be worn over for warmth).Memories
The old centurion sat and watched his fields. He sipped his posca slowly in the shade of an old beech tree as he looked out at the property he had built. In the distance he could see the outlines of two burly slaves, and he watched as they tilled the soil in the heat of the late afternoon. Further away, he could barely make out the aqueduct that ran into the city of Ariminum, and beyond that the great expanse of the Adriatic Sea.
