Neptune’s Journey

Neptune   With the fall of the Greek empire, Julius Caesar commissioned Admiral Gilberto to remove the statue of Neptune from the fallen Admiral Hondros’s home. He wanted to torture the man by placing it across from the barred window of his prison cell. This way he’d remember his former life everyday. It was smooth sailing until they were twenty miles from the Roman port. The oil in the storage compartments caught fire killing everyone on board. There Neptune’s statue remained at the bottom of the ocean until treasure hunters discovered it last month. It now resides at the National Roman Museum.
