The chapter, “Discharging Pullo and Vorenus: Veterans in Rome,” by Lee L. Brice, is written from the viewpoint of a Roman military historian. This chapter assesses the historically authentic and pervasive portrayal of veterans, especially the protagonists, Pullo and Vorenus, in the second season of the series Rome. The chapter does this by observing the way they are shown dealing with demobilization, and how their loyalty to their former military commanders defined their later careers.
