Your next lover, Leo, will be a scholar. He studies the late roman empire, in which culture has moved to Costantinopolis for the barbaric war in Italy. He is studing Boetius, a great thinker and philosopher, who spent the last years of his life in prison, waiting to be killed for deception by the authorities. He wrote a book about the consolation of philosophy. In those dark days he still saw the light in it.
