    Description88b.c. The clouds of the dirtiest war that humanity has ever faced are heavy over aforetime strong Greek cities. Asian King's Mithridates hordes charging unperturbedly, also in Aegean islands and the country. His agents set aside democratic status quo and enforce his dependent tyrants. Rome, deep inside the introversion of civil war, is not able to react. A fallen consul, Lucius Cornelius Sulla, is abstracted in Attica trying to remodel the Roman power. His secret Chaldean mage convince him that the only way to escape and dominate is the building of a complicated astronomic mechanism that combines the high knowledge of Greek laboratories and the immemorial wisdom of Chaldeans. The mechanism is founded but its ownership ending to a merciless chase around Mediterranean. The last scene of this driving political - military thriller takes place in the small island of Antikythera, in a non predictable finale.
