Publisher's Summary

Camul and Acco are both Gauls of the Pyrenees living at the time of Julius Caesar. Both are young and proud of their noble descent; Acco is also an Ovate training to be a Druid. In avenging the girl he loved, Acco brought upon himself the curse of the Goddess. In consequence, both men have left home to join the Roman army. This story traces their adventures and travels, which take them to Rome and across the greater part of the Empire as far as its Eastern rim. Duggan includes a brilliant account of the fate of Marcus Crassus's expedition of seven Roman legions and Gallic cavalry, which set out to plunder Seleucia and met with the Parthian horse-bowmen under their leader, the Surenas.
