who assembled at Drynemetum, as it was called. Now the Council passed judgment upon murder cases, but the tetrarchs and the judges upon all others. Such, then, was the organization of Galatia long ago, but in my time the power has passed to three rulers, then to two; and then to one, Deïotarus, and then to Amyntas, who succeeded him. But at the present time the Romans possess both this country and the whole of the country that became subject to Amyntas, having united them into one province.25 B.C. The Trocmi possess the parts near Pontus and Cappadocia. These are the most powerful of the parts occupied by the Galatians. They have three walled garrisons: Tavium, the emporium of the people in that part of the country, where are the colossal statue of Zeus in bronze and his sacred precinct, a place of refuge; and Mithridatium, which Pompey gave to Bogodiatarus, having separated it from the kingdom of Pontus; and third, Danala, where Pompey and Leucullus had their conference, Pomp
Appian, Wars in Spain (ed. Horace White), CHAPTER XVI (search)
rtorius was murdered by Perpenna, one B.C. 72 of his own partisans, who proclaimed himself general of the faction in place of Sertorius. Pompey slew Perpenna in battle, and so this war, which had greatly alarmed the Romans, came to an end; but I shall speak of this more particularly in my account of the civil wars of Sulla. Y.R. 693 After the death of Sulla, Gaius Cæsar was sent as prætor into Spain with power to make war wherever it was needful. All of those Spaniards who were doubtful in their allegiance, or had not yet submitted to the Romans, he B.C. 61 brought under subjection by force and arms. Some, who afterwards rebelled, were subdued by his adopted son Octavius, Y.R. 729 surnamed Augustus. From that time it appears that B.C. 25 the Romans have divided Iberia (which they now call Hispania) into three parts and sent a praetor to govern each, two being chosen annually by the Senate, and the third appointed by the emperor to hold office during his pleasure.

d said that he would abdicate entirely when Antony should return from the Parthian war, for he was persuaded that Antony, too, would be willing to lay down the government, the civil wars being at an end. Thereupon he was chosen tribune for life by acclamation, the people urging him, by the offer of this perpetual magistracy, to give up his former one.The true date of his election to the tribuneship, deduced from the testament of Augustus inscribed on the wall of the Augusteum at Ancyra, was B.C. 25, i.e., eleven years later than Appian makes it. This he accepted, and at the same time he wrote privately to Antony in reference to their government. Antony gave instructions to Bibulus, who was going away from him, to confer with Octavius. He sent governors to take charge of his provinces in like manner as Octavius had done, and he had thoughts of joining the latter in his expedition against the Illyrians.
e trophies which he erected in the Pyrenees, testified that 877 towns, from the Alps to the borders of the Farther Spain, had been reduced to subjection by him. The whole province is now divided into seven jurisdictions, those of CarthageNova Carthago or New Carthage, now Carthagena., of Tarraco, of Cæsar AugustaNow Zaragoza or Saragossa, on the right bank of the river Ebro. Its original name was Salduba, but it was changed in honour of Augustus, who colonized it after the Cantabrian war, B.C. 25., of CluniaThis was the most remote place of any consideration in Celtiberia, on the west.

n index of peace and war, that when open it might signify that the nation was in arms, when closed that all the peoples round about were pacified. Twice since Numa's reign has it been closed: once in the consulship of Titus Manlius, after the conclusion of the First Punic War; the second time, which the gods permitted our own generation to witness, was after the battle of Actium, when the emperor Caesar Augustus had brought about peace on land and sea.This was evidently written before 25 B.C., when the temple was again closed by Augustus. But it was not written before 27, for it was not until that year that the title of Augustus was conferred upon the emperor. We thus arrive at an approximate date for the beginning of Livy's history. Numa closed the temple after first securing theB.C. 715-672 good will of all the neighbouring tribes by alliances and treaties. And fearing lest relief from anxiety on the score of foreign perils might lead men who had hitherto been held back
Sir Richard C. Jebb, Commentary on Sophocles: Oedipus at Colonus, section 9 (search)
The grave of Oedipus. The grave of Oedipus in Attic ground is to form a perpetual safeguard for Attica against invaders. It is interesting to observe ancient traces of an exactly opposite feeling with regard to his resting-place. According to a Boeotian legendSchol. on O. C. 91, quoting Lysimachus of Alexandria, in the 13th book of his *qhbai+ka/. This Lysimachus, best known as the author of a prose *no/stoi, lived probably about 25 B.C. See Müller, Fragm. Hist. III. 334., Oedipus died at Thebes, and his friends wished to bury him there; but the Thebans refused permission. His friends then carried the body to "a place in Boeotia called Ceos," and there interred it. But "certain misfortunes" presently befell the people of Ceos, and they requested the friends of Oedipus to remove him. The friends next carried him to Eteonus, a place near the frontier between Boeotia and Attica, and buried him by night, without knowing that the ground which they chose for that purpose was sacred to Dem
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, BASILICA NEPTUNI (search)
BASILICA NEPTUNI a building restored by Hadrian (Hist. Aug. 19), and mentioned in Cur. in Region IX and in Pol. Silv. (545). This basilica is now generally, and properly, identified with the sto/a *poseidw=nos built by Agrippa in 25 B.C. (Cass. Dio liii. 27), and with the *poseidw'nion that was burned in the great fire in the reign of Titus (ib. lxvi. 24) and stood between the Pantheon and the Hadrianeum. By some it has also been identified with the PORTICUS ARGONAUTARUM (q.v.), but it is probable that they were separate structures, although near together and possibly adjoining (Lucas, Zur Geschichte der Neptunsbasilika, Berlin 1904; OJ 1912, 132-135).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PORTICUS ARGONAUTARUM (search)
PORTICUS ARGONAUTARUM built by Agrippa in 25 B.C. (Cass. Dio liii. 27), probably near (or, as Hilsen thinks, enclosing) the temple of HADRIAN (q.v.). It derived its name from the paintings on its walls of the adventures of the Argonauts, and seems to have been also called the porticus Agrippiana (Schol. Iuv. vi. 54). Cassius Dio (loc. cit.) calls it stoa\ tou= poseidw=nos, and elsewhere (lxvi. 24) speaks of a *poseidw/nion, which is probably the same building. It is sometimes identified with the BASILICA NEPTUNI (q.v.), although both names occur in the Curiosum in Reg. IX. It is possible that the porticus may have belonged to a temple of Neptune, although *poseidw/nion does not necessarily refer to a temple, and there is no other evidence for the existence of one in this region. This porticus was one of the most frequented in Rome (Mart. ii. 14. 6; iii. 20. 11; xi. I. 12; HJ 574; Lucas, Zur Geschichte der Neptunsbasilica in Rom, Berlin 1904; OJ 1912, 132 ff.).

me. According to Cassius Dio (liii. 27. I) Agrippa built a hot-air bath (to\ puriath/rion to\ *lakwniko/n) The passage continues: *lakwniko\n ga\r to\ gumna/sion e)peidh/per oi( lakedaimo/nioi gumnou=sqai te e)n tw=| to/te kro/nw| kai\ li/pa a)skei=n ma/lista e)do/koun, e)peka/lese.. For a discussion see Mitt. 1920, 154-168.*lakwniko/n is here an adjective (see also the translation in the Loeb series); while in Vitr. v. 10 and elsewhere it means a hot room with cold plunge baths in it. in 25 B.C. at the same time as the PANTHEON (q.v.); and at his death in 12 he left to the Roman people, for their free use, a balanei=on (liv. 29. 4; Sid. Apoll. carm. 23. 496: balnea.. quae Agrippa dedit). As the AQUA VIRGO (q.v.), which supplied these baths with water, was not completed until 19 B.C., it is probable that the laconicum was the original part of what afterwards became a complete establishment for bathing, which was then regularly called thermae. Agrippa adorned these baths with w
