You catch the two men just before they turn a corner and thank them for escorting you so politely, and ask if you could know the names of your benefactors.
"Fabius and Flavius, at your service, ma'am," says the smaller one. Presumably he is the former and his friend is the latter.
A few seconds after they leave, you realize that these are the names of recurring comedic side characters in a series of popular plays.
It was worth a try.
Next on the list is Volcatia's family, after a quick trip home to drop your slaves off. The door security, recognizing you, sends you in immediately. Apparently, everyone is expecting you.
You tell Volcatia's parents about the fight, the various things that seemed slightly off, the crowd and Marianus' reactions, and finally "Fabius and Flavius."
Volcatia's father nods, takes a few notes, and tosses you a bag of coins.
"It seems that Volcatia's dog of a former husband has noticed you."
"What do you plan to do next?"
