g seen? When you have any interest of your own to serve, then auspices are all nothing; but when it is only your friends who are concerned, then you become scrupulous. What more? Did you not also desert him in the matter of the septemvirate?The septemviri, at full length septemviri epulones or epulonum, were originally triumviri. They were first created A. C. 198, to attend to the epulum Jovis, and the banquets given in honour of the other gods, which duty had originally belonged to the pontifices. Julius Caesar added three more, but that alteration did not last. They formed a collegium, and were one of the four great religious corporations at Rome with the pontifices, the augures, and the quindecemviri. Smith, Dict. Ant. v. Epul

We have other cippi under Trajan (31549-51 -- 101 and 104 A.D. -- seventeen set up by Ti. Julius Ferox curator alvei Tiberis ... ct cloacarum urbis), Hadrian (31552 -- 121 A.D.), Antoninus Pius (31553-4 -- 161 A.D.), Septimius Severus (31555-197 -- 198). None of these later groups is very large; and then there is a gap till Diocletian (31556 -- 286-305 A.D.). See PONS AELIUS for the regulation of the channel there; and for the bridges, see PONS.

Calli'stratus a Roman jurist, who, as appears from Dig. 1. tit. 19. s. 3.2, and from other passages in the Digest, wrote at least as late as the reign (A. D. 198-211) of Severus and Antoninus (i. e. Septimius Severus and Caracalla). In a passage of Lampridius (Alex. Sev. 68) which, either from interpolation or from the inaccuracy of the author, abounds with anachronisms, Callistratus is stated to have been a disciple of Papinian, and to have been one of the council of Alexander Severus. This statement may be correct, notwithstanding the suspicious character of the source whence it is derived. Works The numerous extracts from Callistratus in the Digest occupy eighteen pages in Hommel's Palingenesia Pandectarum ; and the fact that he is cited by no other jurist in the Digest, may be accounted for by observing, that the Digest contains extracts from few jurists of importance subsequent to Callistratus. The extracts from Callistratus are taken from works bearing the following titles

The author addresses his poem to the emperor Caracalla, whom he calls (1.3) *)Antwni=ne, to\n mega/lh mega/lw| fitu/sato *Du/mna *Sebh/rw|: and the tenth and eleventh lines have been brought forward as a presumptive evidence that he wrote it after Caracalla had been associated with his father in the empire, A. D. 198, and before the death of the latter, A. D. 211. The "Cynegetica" consist of about 2100 hexameter lines, divided into four books. The last of these is inmperfect, and perhaps a fifth book may also have been lost, as the anonymous author of the Life of Oppian says the poem consisted of; hat number of books, though Suidas mentions only four. There is probably an allusion in this poem to the "Halieutica" (1.77-80), which has been thought to imply that both poems were written by the same pers

h many senators suspected of having been in correspondence with the foe. Games were exhibited, and largesses bestowed on the people; but as soon as the first excitement of success had passed away Severus, still thirsting for military renown, resolved to return to Asia, and again assail the Parthians, who, taking advantage of the civil strife in the West, had spread over Mesopotamia. Accordingly he set forth accompanied by his sons Caracalla and Geta, crossed the Euphrates early in the year A. D. 198, and commenced a series of operations which were attended with the most brilliant results. Seleucia and Babylon were evacuated by the enemy; and Ctesiphon, at that time their royal city, was taken and plundered after a short siege. The campaign against the Arabs, who had espoused the cause of Niger, was less glorious. The emperor twice assailed their chief town Atra, and twice was compelled to retire with great loss. The next three years were spent in the East. Severus entered upon his t

3. Fishing, as an occupation, is perhaps almost coeval with our race. The distinction between netting, trapping, and angling was early understood. The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.... They shall be broken. ... that make sluices and ponds for fish. (Is. XIX. 8, 10.) See also Habakkuk i. 14, 15; Amos IV. 2 (787 B. C.). Oppian wrote a Greek epic on fishes and fishing about A. D. 198.
