Gaius mucius scaevola

I don't know enough to say.
I read about the story years ago. The interesting thing about Roman mythology is that it reads like history.
It was important to the Romans to have this cycle of myths as part of their history.
Like so many legends, it probably has a kernel of truth to it.

Most stories concerning that perioda re mythical, even if they are often written down as if they were historical... see HORATIUS·COCLES tale, for example...
