The chapter, “Earning Immortality: Cicero’s Death Scene in Rome,” by Eran Almagor, details how the second season of the series Rome presents the much-anticipated murder scene of the famous orator, Marcus Tullius Cicero, during the proscriptions led by Octavian and Antony. This chapter describes how the writers of the episode deftly interweave historical fact with dramatic invention using the themes of fatherhood and immortality. This chapter also explores Pullo’s status in this scene as incidental agent of history.
