Legate Plecio sends for his wife and daughter, but while they are under Centurion Metella’s protection, the new Pict chief, Drust, captures the daughter, Lollia. Eager to embarrass the Romans, he has Lollia’s handmaiden killed and takes the girl back to the Pict village to complete his vengeance. The legate blames Metella and a tribunal has him scourged and banished. What happens next shocks even the unflappable Metella.
