This isn't complicated at all, right?

So what did you do to a ghost in ancient Rome? Pray to it? Curse it? Appease it with sacrifices?

Bowl of blood and incantations...

Wine, blood, incantations, proper burial, and vengeance?

Proper Burial might be tricky if the corpse has first to be recovered from under 6 foot of volcanic ashes and stones...

Not to mention vengeance, now that I think about it.

A little wine and a proper burial should do the trick. Maybe just the wine, in this case.

Wait, is the wine for the ghost or for the person being haunted?

Bring enough for everyone, I say. It would be unfriendly to let the vengeance-seeking angry spirits drink alone.

She wants to see Mus!!!

This touches my heart. I actually thought she'd try to avoid him. Go, Iusta!!! ♥

She's a take-the-bull-by-the-horns kinda gal, is our Iusta.

Also she may not have completely thought through the possible fallout whether he's corporeal or not.

Felix, on the other hand, not yet knowing exactly who or what she saw, is probably very nervous about possibly having to punch a ghost in his underwear. (What the ghost was, never mind!)

I bet the Romans would have laughed at that joke.

Heh. I bet you're right XD
