Stage 19: Īsis

It's spring-festival time in Alexandria. In honour of the goddess Isis, one of the most important Egyptian deities, there's going to be a splendid procession from the Temple of Isis to the harbour. Quintus and Lucia are invited along to watch by friends of Barbillus, who then invites Aristo and Quintus to a very Egyptian hunting party.
