This Day in Ancient History: ante diem xii kalendas decembres

ante diem xii kalendas decembres

  • Mercatus — time to restock the cupboards after the Jupiterfest!
  • 63 A.D. — shipwreck of St. Paul (by one reckoning)
  • 270 (?) — birth of the future emperor Maximinus Daia
  • 284 A.D. — elevation of Diocletian to the rank of Caesar  Augustus

… a decade ago at rogueclassicism, the major news appears to be the discovery of an inscription referring to Simon the Just (if the links are dead to that one, try: Gospel verse found on ancient shrine )
