Ashur's speech to his men is a little longer.
Ashur: "We share a bond forged not upon the sands, but upon grander stage of battle, and when it ends, as all conflict must, I will gain Batiatus' ludus and villa as reward for loyal service. It will become the nobel house auf Ashur where I shall train the mightiest gladiators in all the Republic."
