Summary

AD 272 - the Roman emperor Aurelian has defeated Queen Zenobia and crushed the Palmyran revolt.
Faridun's Banner, hallowed battle standard of the Persian Empire, has fallen into Roman hands and is to be returned to the Persians as part of a historic peace treaty. But on the eve of the signing, the banner goes missing.
Recalled to Syria, imperial agent Cassius Corbulo is charged with recovering the flag. Accompanied by his faithful servant, Simo, and ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara, Cassius must journey across the dangerous wastes of Syria to the equally perilous streets of Antioch. He and his companions face ruthless brigands, mysterious cults, merciless assassins and intrigue at every turn.

Good book

Quite a nice quiet read to get lost into the world of ancient Antioch and the rest. Quite long, a bit like a midsummer murders in Syria?
