    It wasn't (completely) their fault... Frontiers were a mess... Gallienus and Domitius had to face Gallic and Palmyrene empires... But true, there wasn't much they did but fighting and being killed by the Pretorian Guard for succession. :think:

    (I never paid attention to Persius... I'll take a look.)

    Numbers: 211

    I just read "211 messages" (above, right side, beside the paenulatus "gaius" that I use for avatar...).

    211 in a Latin forum (even if not, I guess... but even more here) is an imediate association: Caracalla! (Actually, his father's death...) Although for him it would be the year of Terentius and Bassus, Terentio et Basso consulibus, and the 964th of the foundation of the city (or CMLXIV, or maybe DCCCCLXIV ab urbe condĭta)...

    (I've been trying to get used to the dates a.u.c., but the a.D. are still more familiar to me... And to get used not to call Caracalla by this name, but to treat him as Antoninus. ;) )

    Favorite period - II century (military, territorial and civilisational peak of Roman Empire IMO - Trajan, Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius)
