Part 2: Chariot Races In The Circus
Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  February 12, 2020

Chosen by emperor Domitian himself, whose enthusiasm for chariot racing was legendary, Scorpus is now a member of one of the big four stables, called factions, who controlled chariot racing. At the age of 27, Scorpus has logged more than 2,000 victories, but he is also struck by the fate that many charioteers shared before him, and the greatest idol of his time dies in the sand of the race course. One year after Scorpus dead, Domitian, his patron and admirer, falls victim to an assassination.
