Strip by: Ian Boreham

{In a marble-lined Roman building, a toga-clad gentleman is attempting to pay for something. An apologetic servant of the establishment holds a tablet up for a gentleman to view.}
servant: I'm terribly sorry, Sir, but it seems your tessera crediticia has been declined.

tablet screen heading: ROMA ARGENTARIA
tablet screen content: VISA VISAE VISAE VISAM VISĀ VISA VISAE VISĀRUM VISĪS VISĀS VISĪS VISAE

The author writes:
