Strabo, Geography (ed. H.C. Hamilton, Esq., W. Falconer, M.A.), BOOK XVI., CHAPTER II. (search)
ntry was assigned for his abode. The others, by great interest and solicitation, but with difficulty, obtained leave to returnThis refers to the journey of Philip and Antipas to Rome. At the death of Herod, Archelaus went to Rome, A. D. 2, to solicit the confirmation of his father's will, in which he had been named king. The two brothers, Antipas and Philip, also went there, and the kingdom of Herod was divided as above stated, After the exile of Archelaus, his dominions were administered by his two brothers. Strabo does not appear to have been acquainted with the history of the two brothers after their return to Judæa; for otherwise he would not have omitted to mention the exile of Antipas. This tetrarch, it is known, went to Rome A. D. 38, to intrigue against his brother, of whom he was jealous; but he was himself accused by Agrippa of having intelligence with the Parthians, and was exiled to Lyons, A. D. 39. to their own country, each with his tetrarchy restored to him.
it should be burnt to ashes in a new vessel, feathers and all, and then pounded and taken for four consecutive days, in doses of three spoonfuls, in water. Some say that the heart of this bird should be attached to the thigh, and, according to others, the heart should be swallowed fresh, quite warm, in fact. There is a family of consular dignity, known as the Asprenates,There were three consuls of this name, L. Nonius Asprenas, A.D. 7; L. Nonius Asprenas, A.D. 29; and P. Nonius Asprenas, A.D. 38. They are mentioned also by Suetonius, Tacitus, Dion Cassius, Frontinus, and Seneca. two brothers, members of which, were cured of colic; the one by eating a lark and wearing its heart in a golden bracelet; the other, by performing a certain sacrifice in a chapel built of raw bricks, in form of a furnace, and then blocking up the edifice the moment the sacrifice was concluded. The ossifrage has a single intestine only, which has the marvellous property of digesting all that the bird has swallo

AEMILIANA a district outside the Servian wall in the southern part of the campus Martius, but whether near the Tiber, or near the via Flaminia just north of the porta Fontinalis, cannot be determined (Varro, RR iii. 2. 6; Tac. Ann. xv. 40; CIL xv. 7150; cf. Cic. de rep. i. 9; HJ 490). It was ravaged by a great fire on 21st Oct., 38 A.D. (Suet. Claud. 18; BC 1916, 220; 1918, 247; AJA 1908, 42; ILS 9427; BPW 1920, 310).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ANIO NOVUS (search)
ANIO NOVUS * an aqueduct, which, like the aqua Claudia, was begun by Caligula in 38 A.D. (Suet. Cal. 21) and completed in 52 A.D. by Claudius, who dedicated them both on 1st August. The cost of the two was 350,000,000 sesterces, or £3,500,000 sterling (Plin. NH xxxvi. 122; Frontinus, de aquis, i. 4, 13, 15, 18-2 ; ii. 68, 72, 73, 86, 90, 91, 93, 104, 15 ; Suet. Claud. 20; CIL vi. 1256; ix. 4051). Originally the water was taken from the river Anio at the forty-second mile of the via Sublacensis; but, as the water was apt to be turbid, Trajan made use of the two uppermost of the three lakes formed by Nero for the adornment of his villa at Subiaco-the Simbruina stagna of Tac. Ann. xiv. 22 (NS 1883, 19; 1884, 425; Giovannoni, Monas teri di Subiaco i. 273 sqq.), thus lengthening the aqueduct to 58 miles 700 paces. The length of 62 miles given to the original aqueduct in the inscription of Claudius on the PORTA MAIOR (q.v.) must be an error for 52; for an unsuccessful attempt to explai
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, AQUA CLAUDIA (search)
AQUA CLAUDIA * an aqueduct which (like the ANIO Novus, q.v.) was begun by Caligula in 38 A.D. (Suet. Cal. 21), and completed by Claudius in 52(unless Tac. Ann. xi. 13 indicates its completion in 47; see Furneaux in loc.), who dedicated it on 1st August. After being in use for only ten years, the supply failed, and was interrupted for nine years, until Vespasian restored it in 71; and ten years later Titus had to repair it once more, aquas Curtiam et Caeruleam ... cum a capite aquarum a solo vetustate (!) dilapsae essent nova forma reducendas sua impensa curavit. On 3rd July, 88, a tunnel under the mons Aeflanus, near Tibur, was completed. We have no records of other restorations, except from the study of the remains themselves, which show that a good deal of repairing was done in the second and third centuries (Plin. NH xxxvi. 122; Frontinus, de aquis i. 4, 13-15, 18-20, iii. 69, 72, 76, 86, 87, 89, 91, 104, 105; Suet. Claud. 20; Procop. BG ii. 3 (cf. PBS iv. 72, 73); Not. app.;

PROVIDENTIA AUGUSTA, ARA an altar of the goddess who was the incarnation of the imperial care over the Roman empire, mentioned in the acta Arvalium of 38 A.D. (Henzen, Act. Arv. xlv. 74; CIL vi. 2028 d 15) and 39 (vi. 32346) and 43-48 (Henzen Ivi.; CIL vi. 2033, 5); and on coins of the emperors from Nero to Vitellius (Cohen i. 296, No. 253; 329, No. 162; 361, No. 73; 397, No. 398-400; 444, No. 173-180; 508, No. 404- 406; Rosch. iii. 3187).

A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Antiochus the Great (search)
Anti'ochus Iii. or Antiochus the Great (*)Anti/oxos), king of COMMAGENE, seems to have succeeded Mithridates II. We know nothing more of him than that he died in A. D. 17. (Tac. Ann. 2.42.) Upon his death, Commagene became a Roman province (Tac. Ann. 2.56), and remained so till A. D. 38, when Antiochus Epiphanes was appointed king by Caligul
Anti'pater (*)Anti/patros), of THESSALONICA. Works Epigrams The author of several epigrams in the Greek Anthology, lived, as we may infer from some of his epigrams, in the latter part of the reign of Augustus (B. C. 10 and onwards), and perhaps till the reign of Caligula. (A. D. 38.) He is probably the same poet who is called, in the titles of several epigrams, " Antipater Macedo." Further Information Jacobs, Anthol. xiii. pp. 848, 849.[P.
y which Tiberius was accustomed to call him, was meant to express both his loquacity and his boastful character. He is spoken of as the most active of grammarians, and the surname mo/xqos which he bore, according to Suidas, is usually explained as describing the zeal and labour witll which he prosecuted his studies. In the reign of Caligula he travelled about in Greece, and was received everywhere with the highest honours as the great interpreter of Homer. (Senec. l.c.) About the same time, A. D. 38, the inhabitants of Alexandria raised complaints against the Jews residing, in their city, and endeavonred to curtail their rights and privileges. They sent an embassy to the emperor Caligula, which was headed by Apion, for He was a skilful speaker and known to entertain great hatred of the Jews. The latter also sent an embassy, which was headed by Philo. In this transaction Apion appears to have overstepped the limits of his commission, for he not only brought forward the complaints of his
