Quo Vadis?

A maiden called Lygia,
or Callina, disappeared.

- l shall find her.
- By what means?

You possess the means,
l, the brains.

You'll die,
if you're deceiving me for gain.

l am a philosopher, my lord,
and as such cannot crave profits,

- especially such generous ones.
- Which school do you represent?

l am a Cynic,
for my cloak is full of holes,

a Stoic, for l accept my poverty,
and a Peripatetic,

for, not having a litter,
l walk from inn to inn

and teach for a full jar.
Thus becoming a Rhetor.
Heraclitus said, ''Everything flows''.
And is wine isn't a solid, is it?

When will you start?
l already have. l am searching
by answering your kind questions.

- Have you any experience?
- Virtue and wisdom sell cheaply,

so philosophers seek
other ways of earning a living.

Good. What do you need?
- Weapons.
- Of what sort?

Times are hard...
You have asked questions,
now it's my turn.

Noble tribune, have you seen
any signs or charms on Lygia?

Has she drawn
any secret symbols?
Once... a fish in the sand.
A fish! A fish!
- Once or several times?
- Just once.

- A fish, you say?
- Yes.

What does it mean?
May the goddess Fortune
bless you both

- in equal measure, kind sirs!
- The cloak is yours.

Ulysses thanks you
for Theristes!
