In 92 AD, Alexandria Egypt is the unchallenged pinnacle of Western intellectual achievement. A melting pot of Egyptians, Greeks, Jews, and Romans, it frequently boils over into violence. Marco, a young man from Corinth, finds himself caught between the Romans and the Free Egypt rebel forces as he helps invent the most powerful weapon in the world. The rebels obtain it and threaten to overthrow the hated Roman occupiers.
