Gaius Tanno:
You remind me of an acrobat in the arena walking on a rope stretched high in the air.



Marcus:
Walking on a rope?



Gaius Tanno:
Yes, a rope no wider than my thumb.



Marcus:
[laughing] I'm not walking on a rope.



Gaius Tanno:

I risk my life with the man I'm fighting. You buy and sell wretches to be slaughtered as a spectacle. I'm not proud of myself, but, by Jupiter, compared to you I'm a holy man.
