By the Gods!

Sylva Koscina, as Clio, rides to her father's temple in SIEGE OF SYRACUSE

Ah the simple days when a pretty woman could ride nonchalantly around, to the market or anywhere, in a chariot.

I love SIEGE OF SYRACUSE but one of the criticism I have about it is that Sylva's role was merely a footnote, nothing more. It was severely underwritten. But she lit-up the story whenever she was on screen.
