Articles (Ancient stories)
The Roman state existed in practice for XIII centuries, being the power which was impacting the history. Therefore, I decided that I would tell the history of ancient Rome in the articles below, which will not necessarily cover only the Eternal City.
I encourage you to send articles and point out any corrections or inaccuracies.
Poison was a weapon commonly used in the intrigues of ancient Rome, it was a way more discreet and difficult to detect the killer efficiently than murders with melee weapons. Emperors used it to eliminate their opponents or pretenders to power, and people who knew each other and had the appropriate skills to use them were especially valued and employed by them. This is also what happened with a woman who travelled from the wild forests of Gaul to the marble palaces of Rome and is widely regarded as a professional poisoner and first serial killer in ancient Rome.
