I was re-watching HBO's old "Rome" show and towards the end of the scene above, a slave or pleb starts eating Cato's last bit of bread after *Spoilers* Cato dies. This is after everyone had been alerted to Cato's passing. It just strikes me as odd behavior even. I mean, I can understand the times and the societal constructs but even in Ancient Roman times I would assume that kind of behavior was still taboo.
So I put it to you, Is it okay to finish a dead Man's last meal?
- I don't know.

No it’s gross. A dead person ate it.1

He was probably hungery just because some one died that's no reason to waste good food especially in those times1
