Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AUGUSTUS MONS (search)
AUGUSTUS MONS the name given to the Caelian hill by the senate in 27 A.D., in gratitude to Tiberius for his generosity in repairing the ravages of a great fire on that hill, and in recognition of the miraculous preservation of a statue of the emperor (Suet. Tib. 48; Tac. Ann. iv. 64). There is no record of the use of the name, and it probably did not survive after the death of Tiberius even in official documents.

within the area of the city, a condition that probably went back to the regal period. Whether this hill ever had its own fortifications is still undecided (Ann. d. Inst. 1871, 47; cf. Varro, loc. cit.; Jord. i. I. 206; HJ 224). In Augustus' division of the city, the Caelian fell into three regions- the western and southern slopes into Region I, the main portion into II, and the extreme eastern part into V. The hill was thickly populated during the republic, and we are told of an apartment house, belonging to Ti. Claudius Centumalus (Cic. de off. iii. 66), which the owner was ordered to demolish because it was so high as to cut off the view of the augurs. In 27 A.D. the hill suffered severely from a fire (Tac. Ann. iv. 64), and afterwards became a favourite place for the residences of the rich, which, with their gardens, seem to have occupied a considerable part of the whole (for the topography and monuments of the Caelian see HJ 220-255; Pl. 428-443; RE iii. 1273-1275).

Afer, Domi'tius of Nemausus (Nismes) in Gaul, was praetor A. D. 25, and gained the favour of Tiberius by accusing Claudia Pulchra, the consobrina of Agrippina, in A. D. 26. (Tac. Ann. 4.52.) From this time he became one of the most celebrated orators in Rome, but sacrificed his character by conducting accusations for the government. In the following year, A. D. 27, he is again mentioned by Tacitus as the accuser of Varus Quintilius, the son of Claudia Pulchra. (Ann. 4.66.) In consequence of the accusation of Claudia Pulchra, and of some offence which he had given to Caligula, he was accused by the emperor in the senate, but by concealing his own skill in speaking, and pretending to be overpowered by the eloquence of Caligula, he not only escaped the danger, but was made consul suffectus in A. D. 39. (D. C. 59.19, 20.) In his old age Afer lost much of his reputation by continuing to speak in public, when his powers were exhausted. (Quint. Inst. 12.11.3; Tac. Ann. 4.52.) He died in the
Dolabella 10. P. Cornelius Dolabella, a son of No. 9, was proconsul of Africa in the reign of Tiberius, A. D. 23 and 24. In the course of the administration of his province he gained a complete victory over the Numidian Tacfarinas; but although he had formerly been a very great flatterer of Tiberius, yet he did not obtain the ornaments of a triumph, in order that his predecessor in the province of Africa, Junius Blaesius, an uncle of Sejanus, might not be thrown into the shade. In A. D. 27 he joined Domitius Afer in the accusation against his own relative, Quintilius Varus. (Tac. Ann. 3.47, 68, 4.23, &c., 66.)

Gratus, Vale'rius procurator of Judaea from A. D. 15 to A. D. 27, and the immediate predecessor of Pontius Pilate. (J. AJ 18.6 § 5.) The government of Gratus is chiefly remarkable for the frequent changes he made in the appointment of the high-priesthood. He deposed Ananus, and substituted Ismael, son of Fabi, then Eleazar, son of Ananus, then Simon, son of Camith, and lastly Joseph Caiaphas, the son-in-law of Ananus. (Id. Antiq. 18.2.2.) He put down two formidable bands of robbers that infested Judaea during his government, and killed with his own hand the captain of one of them, Simon, formerly a slave of Herod the Great. (Id. Antiq. 17.0.6, 7; B. J. 2.4.2, 3.) Gratus assisted the proconsul Quintilius Varus in quelling an insurrection of the Jews. (B. J. 2.5.2.) [W.B.D
Piso 31. L. Calpurnius Piso Licinianus, was the son of M. Licinius Crassus Frugi, who was consul with L. Piso in A. D. 27, and of Scribonia, a grand-daughter of Sex. Pompeius. His brothers were Cn. Pompeius Magnus, who was killed by Claudius, M. Licinius Crassus, slain by Nero, and Licinius Crassus Scribonianus, who was offered the empire by Antonius Primus, but refused to accept it. By which of the Pisones Licinianus was adopted, is uncertain. On the accession of the aged Galba to the throne on the death of Nero, he adopted as his son and successor Piso Licinianus ; but the latter only enjoyed the distinction four days, for Otho, who had hoped to receive this honour, induced the praetorians to rise against the emperor. Piso fled for refuge into the temple of Vesta, but was dragged out by the soldiers, and despatched at the threshold of the temple, A. D. 69. His head was cut off and carried to Otho, who feasted his eves with the sight, but afterwards surrendered it for a large sum of

Varus, Quinti'lius 14. Quintilius Varus, probably the son of No. 13, was accused by Domitius Afer in A. D. 27 (Tac. Hist. 4.66.) He is called by Tacitus the propinquus of the emperor Tiberius; and we learn from Seneca, who had heard Varus declaiming, that he was the son-in-law of Germanicus. (Senec. (Controv. 4.) Varus may also have been called the propinquus of Tiberius, because his mother Claudia Pulchra was the sobrina of Agrippina. (Tac. Ann. 4.52, 66.)
"murder will out." --The citizens of Hernando county, Fla., as has been stated, on the 27th ult. hung Hamp, a slave belonging to the estate of Albert Clarke, for the murder of his master. The negro confessed that he was promised two hundred dollars by Jas. Boyd (a step-son of the deceased) and Mrs. Clarke (decedent's wife)--$100 respectively — as a compensation for taking the life of his master, and that he committed the murder accordingly.--The Tampa Peninsular says Boyd and Mrs. Clarke are now in charge of the people, closely guarded.
