Pliny the Elder, The Natural History (ed. John Bostock, M.D., F.R.S., H.T. Riley, Esq., B.A.), BOOK II. AN ACCOUNT OF THE WORLD AND THE ELEMENTS., CHAP. 72.—IN WHAT PLACES ECLIPSES ARE INVISIBLE, AND WHY THIS IS THE CASE. (search)
place Sept. 21st, U.C. 331, eleven days before the battle of Arbela; while, in the same art. p. 423, the battle is said to have taken place on Oct. 2nd, eleven days after a total eclipse of the moon., the moon was eclipsed at the second hour of the night, while, in Sicily, the moon was rising at the same hour. The eclipse of the sun which occurred the day before the calends of May, in the consulship of Vipstanus and FonteiusIt took place on the 30th of April, in the year of the City 811, A.D. 59; see Brewster, ubi supra. It is simply mentioned by Tacitus, Ann. xiv. 12, as having occurred among other prodigies which took place at this period., not many years ago, was seen in Campania between the seventh and eighth hour of the day; the general Corbulo informs us, that it was seen in Armenia, between the eleventh and twelfth hourWe have an account of Corbulo's expedition to Armenia in Dion Cassius, lx. 19–24, but there is no mention of the eclipse or of any peculiar celestial phænomen
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, T. SEXTIUS AFRICANUS, DOMUS (search)
T. SEXTIUS AFRICANUS, DOMUS thought to have been at the corner of the Via del Babuino and the Via di Gesi e Maria, where a private house was discovered in making the foundations of the English Church of All Saints (NS 1880, 466; BC 1881, 29; LF I; CIL vi. 31684; Cons. 288). The inscription is, however, fragmentary, and its provenance not absolutely certain (HJ 451). T. Sextius Africanus was consul suffectus in 59 A.D. (Pros. iii. 236, 464).
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, MACELLUM MAGNUM (search)
MACELLUM MAGNUM the market house on the Caelian (Not. Reg. II; CIL vi. 1648, 9183) which Nero built and dedicated in 59 A.D. (Cass. Dio lxii. 18), perhaps on the site of the present church of S. Stefano Rotondo. It is represented on coins of the period (Cohen, Nero 126-130; BM. Nero 191-197, 335-337) as a circular building of two stories, with a central tholos or domed structure surrounded by colonnades. This is generally thought to have been destroyed at some later date and rebuilt at the end of the fourth century for public use, perhaps again as a market. Lugli (ZA 147) follows Profumo's idea (Incendio Neroniano, 673-694) that the original circular building was the famous coenatio rotunda of the DOMUS AUREA (q.v.); but this has nothing to recommend it. Rivoira (RA 79-81) was unable to see anything above ground that showed the remotest indication of work of the time of Nero. It was transformed into the church of S. Stefano by Pope Simplicius (468-482); and restored with various

placed by Hadrian in accordance with his well-known principle in such cases. The restoration ascribed to Antoninus Pius (Hist. Aug. Pius 8:instauratum ... templum Agrippae) may refer only to the completion of Hadrian's building. Finally, a restoration by Severus and Caracalla in 202 A.D. is recorded in the lower inscription on the architrave (CIL vi. 896). What it amounted to is quite uncertain, for no traces of their work can be recognised with any certainty (JRS 1925, 125). In January, 59 A.D., the Arval Brethren met in the Pantheon (CIL vi. 2041); Hadrian held court in his restored edifice (Cass. Dio lxix. 7. I); Ammianus (xvi. 10. 14: Pantheum velut regionem teretem speciosa celsitudine fornicatam) speaks of it as one of the wonders of Rome; and it is mentioned in Reg. (Not. Reg. IX). For a library situated in or near the Pantheon, see THERMAE AGRIPPAE (p. 519); THERMAE NERONIANAE. The building faces due north; it consists of a huge rotunda preceded by a pronaos. The former is

Boiocalus the leader of the Ansibarii, a German people, was a man of great renown, and had long been faithful to the Romans, but made war against them in A. D. 59. (Tac. Ann. 13.55, 56.)
Cameri'nus 10. Sulpicius Camerinus, was proconsul of Africa together with Pomponius Silvanus, and on their return to Rome in A. D. 59, they were both accused on account of their extortions in their province, but were acquitted by the emperor Nero. (Tac. Ann. 13.52.) Soon afterwards, however, Nero put Camerinus and his son to death, according to Dio Cassius (63.18), for no other reason but because they ventured to make use of the surname Pythicus, which was hereditary in their family, and which Nero claimed as an exclusive prerogative for himself. It appears from Pliny (Plin. Ep. 5.3), that they were accused by M. Regulus.

Ca'pito, Fonteius 5. C. Fonteius Capito, consul in A. D. 59 together with C. Vipsanius. (Tac. Ann. 14.1 ; Plin. Nat. 2.72, 7.20; Solin. 6.)
Ju'lia 9. Daughter of Drusus [DRUSUS CAESAR, No. 16] and Livia, the sister of Germanicus. She married, A. D. 20, her first cousin, Nero, son of Germanicus and Agrippina (Tac.. Ann. 3.29; Dio Cass. Iviii. 21), and was one of the many spies with whom her mother and Sejanus surrounded that unhappy prince. (Tac. Ann. 4.60.) After Nero's death Julia married Rubellius Blandus, by whom she had a son, Rubellius Plautus. (rac. Ann. 6.27, 45, 16.10; Juv. Sat. 8.40.) [BLANDUS.] As Blandus was merely the grandson of a Roman eques of Tibur, the marriage was considered degrading to Julia. She too, like the preceding, incurred the hatred of Messalina, and, her instigation, was put to death by Claudius, A. D. 59. (Tac. Ann. 13.43; D. C. 60.18; Suet. Cl. 29; Sen. de Mort. Claud.

pressure of age and sorrow. But a careful examination of the historical notices in the satires themselves will at once prove that this opinion is untenable, although we must carefully separate what is certain from what is doubtful. Thus it is often asserted that the thirteenth satire belongs to A. D. 119 or even to A. D. 127, because written sixty years after the consulship of Fonteius (see 5.17), as if it were unquestionable that this Fonteius must be the C. Fonteius Capito who was consul A. D. 59, or the L. Fonteius Capito who was consul A. D. 67, while, in reality, the individual indicated is in all probability C. Fonteius Capito, who was consul A. D. 12, since we know, from Statius, that Rutilius Gallicus (see 5.157) was actually city praefect under Domitian. Again, the contest between the inhabitants of Ombi and of Tentyra is said (15.27) to have happened " nuper consule Junio; " but even admitting this name to be correct, and the MSS. here vary much, we cannot tell whether we ou
