In this episode I continue the theme of early Rome by looking at its second King. Numa Pompilius.

I talk about how he came to the throne, what religious initiatives he set in place and how the sources handled their accounts of him. As ever there are some curious tangents involving dancing, possible magic, thunderstorms and stinking charms.
