ante diem vi kalendas novembres

  • 97 A.D. – The emperor Nerva adopts the future emperor Trajan
  • 312 A.D – Battle of the Milvian Bridge; Constantine I has a vision and defeats Maxentius to become sole emperor


[n.b. oddly, in all my years of doing This Day in Ancient History in one form or another (at least 10), I have never had anything for October 28! I haven’t had a chance to double check these items for sources]
