Roman Citizen # 16 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

Augustus Caesar and the dwarf Lycius sit on some steps near the marketplace dressed as beggars and discuss politics, power and dreams in the story August, which appeared in Fables And Reflections.

Throughout the story many Roman citizens pass by these two men. Some of the stop and talk to them others ignore them as they would ignore a typical beggar.

This Roman Citizen ignored Augustus and Lycius as he passed carrying a large basket.

He appears in Sandman # 30, on page 8, in panel 6.

Anna didn’t have much to work with to interpret this character. I appreciate her ability to give the most vague of characters a face and personality. In her snapshot of the character, she managed to add great details such as the leaves and grapes to give a sense of the citizen’s role.
