Most of us know the saying about the captain going down with the ship. Abandon Ship is supposed to be for the passengers, not captain first. Allegedly, he was drinking wine with a woman on board.
In Ancient Rome, he would’ve been approached and told, The Emperor is displeased. You would have had to commit suicide or be humiliated, then executed. With the role of the captain are the perks, but also the grave responsibilities.
Shame on him!
