An earthquake hits in June 268 BC, destroying a large part of the main farmland. It will split the farmland into three sections. You can still build a bridge to the (now) smaller farmland sections to keep using them, although you cannot bridge the canyons left behind by the earthquake.
Hints & Tips
If you're not sure whether you've mastered the basics on Capua, then experiment some more on this level.
Apart from the earthquake, the only problem you might have is the high favor rating requirement. There aren't many opportunities to build up the favor rating, but you don't need to give any gifts to Caesar to pass the level, if you don't hang around for TOO long.
To put food items (eg. Fruit) into a warehouse, tell the trade advisor to stockpile that item. You can only send fruit to the emperor if it's in a warehouse, not granary.
If you have any real problems with the favor rating, send gifts to Caesar, with 12 months between gifts.
