This Day in Ancient History: ante diem xi kalendas octobres

ante diem xi kalendas octobres

  • Mercatus — stocking the cupboards after the ludi Romani
  • 490 B.C. — battle of Marathon (yet another reckoning)
  • 490 B.C. — the Athenian polemarch Callimachus dies during the Marathon campaign (contingent on the above, obviously)
  • 19 B.C. — death of Publius Vergilius Maro (more likely than yesterday)
  • 37 A.D. — the emperor Gaius (Caligula) is given the title pater patriae
  • 1st century A.D. — martyrdom of Iphigenia
