Upon arrival, he is met by Sosia’s cousin and Decimus’s daughter, Helena Justina. They dislike each other immediately; Helena is a wealthy aristocrat; Falco makes assumptions about her based on her class.

However, Falco interprets this as a bribe for his silence concerning the crimes of Domitian and Decimus; out of loyalty to Sosia, he refuses.
