    This fictitious tale is set in Ancient Rome. Caius, Rufus, Antonius, Mucius, Flavius, Julius, and Publius are students in the finest grammar school in all of Rome. Only wealthy patricians can afford to send their sons to this school, so these seven are the entire class. One day Cauis begins to irritate Rufus, and Rufus retaliates by writing "Cauis is a dumbbell" on his writing tablet and hanging it up at the front of the classroom. This leads to a scuffle, which their teacher soon dissolves. Rufus is sent home, and the boys are subdued. The next day arrives with a string of mysteries. Neither Rufus nor Cauis come to school, but an even bigger problem is that the teacher isn't there! This has never happened before. The remaining students find him tied up in his closet, his house ransacked. It appears that the burglar took only some mathematic books, unimportant pictures, and Rufus's writing tablet. When the boys go to visit Rufus, they find the words "Cauis is a dumbbell" written in red paint on the temple wall. Rufus claims he is innocent and his handwriting was forged, but his classmates discover that he was out all night long, with no good alibi. Now Rufus has been arrested, and it's up to his six friends to find out who is behind all the mysteries before Rufus is punished for desecrating the temple!

    The "detectives" from Detectives in Togas (see description) are back. This time, the boys buy their teacher a slave, Udo, for his birthday. Unfortunately, he doesn't have any use for the slave, and he tells the boys to return him to the trader. The boys try and take Udo back, but the trader they bought him from has fled - and with good reason! An ex-gladiator threatened to kill him if he didn't get Udo back. Now the boys are stuck with a slave who is wanted - dead or alive - by an ex-gladiator! Udo eventually reveals to the boys and their teacher that he is the personal slave of Marcius Patricius Pollino. He was sent to Rome to deliver a letter - a letter revealing the name of a famous senator Pollino wants killed. The boys are horrified - all of their fathers are famous senators!
