Roman Citizen # 140 (illustrated by Nicole Ingram)

In Fables And Reflections, Augustus Caesar and the dwarf Lycius spend the day sitting on the temple steps near the marketplace dressed as beggars.

The marketplace is crowded and many people pass them without regard, because who would expect this lowly beggar to be the Emperor of Rome.

This citizen is spending the afternoon in the Roman market near the steps where Caesar and Lycius are sitting.

She appears in Sandman # 30, page 13, and is panel 4.

This is an awesome portrait from Nicole. I really like her approach to this character. Most people interpret Roman citizens as men, but Nicole decided that she was a woman. I really like her clothing and the creases in the cloth bringing a realism to her character.
