Back to Rome for a meeting with Hadrian, the roving emperor. Ryan Stitt from the History of Ancient Greece podcast discusses the "Greekling" and his most impressive monument, the Pantheon: the best preserved Roman temple anywhere.

To eat, artichokes for spring, either alla Romana or alla giudia, both Roman classics.
