Roman Slave Market - Linear-b

Unlike the previous set, Roman Port, which contained a couple of slaves, this set is mostly slaves and a couple of sellers / Guards. 6 sellers and guards and the rest slaves, although one woman could theoretically be a citizen looking on in disgust/shock.
There´s a bit of Flash...but not so much that a bit of scalpel work will deal with.
The set divides mostly into little vignettes;
....Brutal guard beating slaves.......the guard would make another addition to an angry mob Scene.....
.....Brutal guard leading a mothers child away....
....brutal seller displaying his female captives. The female on the left could be either a slave awaiting her turn or a shocked onlooker. She doesn´t appear to have sandals so she could fall into the slave category.
....another guard leading away a prisoner.....
...and lastly, two buyers.
