17. You have landed at Carthage and you immediately approach the forum. Once you part ways with the boat crew, you head out alone into the forum of Carthage. The forum is an open square, or market-place that is found in a typical Roman town with a combination of political, judicial, and commercial functions. As you ponder over your next move, someone bumps into you and knocks you over.
20. A well-traveled doctor (medicus) in a rush who feels bad for running into you and offers you a few smelly twigs and a handful of dried rosemary (rosmarinum). You notice that the medicus has already hurried off while you were examining your gifts. Surely someone in this large marketplace knows of this plant, so you set off in search of answers.
21. You don't see who knocked you over but a nearby soldier helps you up.
