Young slave Milon starts his journey at home in Athens. When he sets sail on a ship bound for Italy his adventures really begin. He narrowly escapes with his life in Pompei as the great volcano Vesuvius erupts and destroys the town; he experiences the colorful life of the metropolis of Alexandria in Egypt, and he faces a battle for life and death in the Colosseum in Rome.

When he meets a small community of Christians in Rome, he finally gains his freedom. At the center of the story is Milon's relationship with a wounded lion who he bravely helps. Will the lion remember him and return the favor when Milon faces death at the hands of the mighty Roman emperors?

Written for Class 6 of Waldorf Inspired Classes, this is a great addition to the study of historical events and world religions for 11 to 12 year olds in Homeschool as well.
