Not bad as a story, and the characters are pretty well done, but it fails a bit in terms of being an alternative history. You don't really get a sense of being in the Roman Empire in the late 20th century. It might have been any contemporary fantasy setting, with Roman influences. The worldbuilding could have been much more fleshed out, there's very little description or explanation about the culture, about what people look like, what they wear or eat, which makes it all appear a bit thin.
