Rome & Empire with Darius Arya Digs

About This Episode

Diocletian is the third century emperor that brought the Empire back from the brink of collapse. After generations of uncertainly, his will, administration, military prowess and ruthless drive established a new period of calm that rippled through the Roman empire. Just consider the tetrarchy ruling system, new management of provinces, Edict of Prices, and Great (Christian) Persecution!

And when it was all said and done he retired in his bespoke fortified villa that became the core of the later town of Split, Croatia. So richly preserved that it is a noted UNESCO site and also the location for many a scene in Game of Thrones.

Walk the streets of this historic site and explore the archaeology, art, and ancient history beneath with Darius on his recent visit!
