Chief Vitalstatistix rashly invites his brother-in-law to dine on a stew seasoned with Caesar’s laurel wreath, so Asterix and Obelix must go to Rome to fetch those laurels.
Hoping to get access to Caesar, they sell themselves as slaves – but can they do a deal with the corrupt Goldendelicius to sawap the laurels for parsley? If so, it will be their own Roman triumph!
