Jonathan is upset that his father Mordecai is to marry his girlfriend Miriam and still holds out hope of reconciling him with Susannah. When plague sweeps through Rome Mordecai, as a doctor, is summoned to help, taking the children with him. Titus has had a prophetic dream in which a Prometheus will open Pandora's box and destroy Rome. Flavia believes this refers to Berenice, Titus's former partner, now confined to her quarters, in which a box taken to be the Ark of the Covenant is found. Jonathan is persuaded by Agathus, a slave with a grudge, to kill Titus but accidentally starts a fire, which destroys several buildings. Hearing too that his mother is dead - though in fact this was a ruse to prevent Berenice from harming her - a despairing Jonathan sees himself as being the Prometheus and joins a gladiatorial school. However Flavia, Nubia and Lupus, believing him to be dead, return to Ostia without him.
