L. Livius prae. circ. omnibus in Circo sal.

A huge upset on the track!!

Archippos, with wide open lanes around him on all sides, casually—too casually—spurs towards the finish line for an easy place! With his eyes on the cheering crowds, rather than the track, the Albatus unknowingly steers his chariot towards the bloody body of Tanek, strewn across the second and third lanes. Archippos' asturcones buck and rear to avoid the gruesome obstacle, finally drawing their charioteer's attention with their unruly riot. It is a warning come too late, however, as the spooked fillies split left and right, tearing the chariot apart on the track. Archippos cuts his reins and dives to safety, but his team is a ruined wreck in the second lane. A few feet from the linea alba, and Archippos is out of the race! White fans everywhere wail and groan at this unimaginable defeat!

Petrus is now in the lead, headed for his last turn, and possibly second place; and Eonus is the only Albatus left on the track!

Petrus continues in a straight line for the turn, with Eonus a fair distance behind. There's no way for the Albatus to get ahead of Petrus at this point, so the only question that remains is whether both chariots will make it to the finish line without further injury. For Eonus, such a fate would be the end of him, much like his teammate Archippos.

Petrus safely rounds the metae, heading for the linea alba for an easy third place! Eonus is next to face his final, fatal turn ...

Much to the delight of the Blues, Petrus crosses the finish line safely, followed by Eonus for a distant fourth place.

All four chariots which completed the race—Kostas, Makarios, Petrus, and Eonus—will therefore be racing in the championship race!

For those interested, a replay of the entire race is available for viewing at the Circus Livius.
