Diocletian's Cabbages Sweatshirt

69,00 €Price
This idea comes from  a story revolving around an emperor called Diocletian, he essentially saved the empire from collapse in the very late 3rd century and my idea for him revolves around cabbages. 

Essentially he took over power and became the first emperor to abdicate power voluntarily and retire. The scene revolves around the empire getting into shit again and civil war and his co emperor who retired with him, Maximian begged him to reconsider and come out of retirement and they would both come out of retirement.

Allegedly, when he was being begged to come back he responded to his old old and loyal friend and said. Something along the lines of
If you could only see my cabbages that I am growing. You would see how foolish this idea is. (Essentially he was a content man retired in his luxury palace)
