Two brothers, Claudius and Julius, are walking on the street to the Forum. In the Forum the father of Claudius and Julius is waiting for his sons. (Their) father works in the Curia because he is a senator. The boys look at the temples and the men on the street. Suddenly Julius shouts, "Claudius, do you see the big lion?" "I see the lion," says Claudius. "I am frightened because the lion has fled from the Colosseum." Suddenly four slaves run into the street and shout, "Where is the lion?" Julius and Claudius tell the slaves, "The lion is in front of the temple of Jupiter." The slaves run to the temple and capture the lion. Now the lion is in the Colosseum again.
