Episode 37 – Numa Pompilius

Numa Pompilius is to laws as Romulus and Remus are to violence.

Following in the wake of the violent founding of Rome, a king is chosen for his steady character, disinterest in being a leader, and Sabine heritage.

Let the Doctors take you in the rule of Numa Pompilius, the second monarch recognised from the founding of the city, who secured the favour of the divine Egeria.
