This Day in Ancient History: ante diem vii idus februarias

ante diem vii idus februarias

  • 304 A.D. — martyrdom of Adaucus in Phrygia
  • 1845 — the small glass ‘amphora’ known as the Portland Vase, while on loan to the British Museum, was smashed by a guy on a drinking binge (it was subsequently restored) [photo]
