Through the ages many stories have been told about the Roman Empire, such as Androcles & The Lion, Androcles was a runaway slave who found a lion in distress, because of several thorns in the lion’s front paws, the lion allowed Androcles gradually to pluck the thorns out one by one. The lion limped away and Androcles carried on with his life on the run.
Androcles was recaptured, and thrown into a cage with a lion, the lion that he had previously befriended, the lion just acted like a big domestic cat towards Androcles, the head-jailer was amazed, and both the lion and Androcles were released and returned back into the wilderness together.
