    Tigranes, quitting Armenia, had ravaged the Adiabeni, a people on its border, too extensively and continuously for mere plundering raids. So the envoys were sent back without an answer, but with some presents, in order to inspire a hope that Tiridates would not make the same request in vain, if only he presented his petition in person. He also gave the reasons why neither he himself nor Drusus had gone to the war; he magnified the greatness of the empire, and said it would be undignified for emperors, whenever there was a commotion in one or two states, to quit the capital, the centre of all government. Yet the peril of so great a man did not make him relent, till Haterius went with entreaties to Augusta, and was saved by her very earnest intercessions. And this was not the end of the intrigue.

    There was a further proposal of Messalinus, that Tiberius, Augusta, Antonia, Agrippina and Drusus ought to be publicly thanked for having avenged Germanicus. No authority was strong enough to check the turbulence of a people which protected the crimes of men as much as the worship of the gods. Money was, however, voted from the exchequer, and though the use of the triumphal robe in the circus was prescribed, it was not allowed them to ride in a chariot. Movement, change, light growth and decay are the lifeblood of nature, the energies that I try to tap through my work. From his wife, too, he had adopted a womanly and yet baser suggestion; for she even held over him a dreadful thought, that many had been present, both freedmen and slaves, who had seen what he had; that one man's silence would be useless, whereas the rewards would be for him alone who was first with the information.

    In a part of the same letter he sneered at female friendships, with an indirect censure on the consul Fufius, who had risen to distinction through Augusta's partiality. The common account is that they were buried in the general's tent, though according to some their bodies were flung outside the entrenchments for all to see. It had its beginning in that part of the circus which adjoins the Palatine and Caelian hills, where, amid the shops containing inflammable wares, the conflagration both broke out and instantly became so fierce and so rapid from the wind that it seized in its grasp the entire length of the circus. As McPhee says, "The text has been meshed, melded, revised, in some places cut, and everywhere studied for repetition.

Annals of our time book

That is my proposal, just as though he were convicted under the law of treason. Augustus meanwhile, as supports to his despotism, raised to the pontificate and curule aedileship Claudius Marcellus, his sister's son, while a mere stripling, and Marcus Agrippa, of humble birth, a good soldier, and one who had shared his victory, to two consecutive consulships, and as Marcellus soon afterwards died, he also accepted him as his son-in-law.

The Annals of Tacitus (Unabridged Edition) by Tacitus

At last, when there were others ready to be abettors of a mutiny, he asked, in the tone of a demagogue, why, like slaves, they submitted to a few centurions and still fewer tribunes.

May we still keep up with our ancestors a rivalry in all that is honourable! They loaded them with insults, and were on the point of murdering them, Plancus especially, whose high rank had deterred him from flight.

Still, the other principal senators, and especially the magistrates, were perplexed, for Tiberius, notwithstanding his furious invective, had left everything else in doubt. What would happen were it for a number of years to be forgotten, just as in a divorce? Nero offered his gardens for the spectacle, and was exhibiting a show in the circus, while he mingled with the people in the dress of a charioteer or stood aloft on a car.

To these the emperor added the civic crown, complaining, but without anger, that Apronius had not used his right as proconsul to bestow this further distinction. As for the rest, they perished, some it is certain by the sword, others it was believed by poison or starvation. When I leave it, these processes continue.

The stones and spears penetrated their host at a range beyond the reach of the opposing volleys of arrows. At the same time sat down to a more than usually sumptuous banquet, and gave his favourite slaves their freedom, and money to others.

After the savage massacres in which greatness of renown was fatal, the survivors turned to wiser ways. It was next proposed to relax the Papia Poppaea law, which Augustus in his old age had passed subsequently to the Julian statutes, for yet further enforcing the penalties on celibacy and for enriching the exchequer.

Pontiffs had often performed the rites to Jupiter when his priest was hindered by illness or by public duty. What a paltry matter is this of which the aediles are reminding us!

After a time he grew so powerful by accusing all the best men, that in influence, wealth, and ability to injure, he was pre-eminent even in that bad company. Even the proclamation by which he summoned the senators to their chamber, he issued merely with the title of Tribune, which he had received under Augustus.

Nor did Caesar check them, seeing that without any order from himself the same men were responsible for all the cruelty and all the odium of the deed. In addition were some slaves who were being trained for gladiators, clad after the national fashion in a complete covering of steel.

Tears and the solace found in mourning were suitable enough for the first burst of grief; but now they must brace their hearts to endurance, as in former days the Divine Julius after the loss of his only daughter, and the Divine Augustus when he was bereft of his grandchildren, had thrust away their sorrow.Annals definition, a record of events, especially a yearly record, usually in chronological order.

THE ANNALS OF IOWA. The thesis is provocative as is the book; its many strengths re-sult in profitable and enjoyable reading. Numerous chapters such as the ones on the genesis of the Berkeley riots, the struc-ture of the foreign policy establishment, and the problems of voter registration in the South, resemble good feature articles.

The Book of the Annals

Dec 21,  · Dear Mr. Stewart, Belated thanks for your Christmas greetings. As you may have found out earlier this morning (which may explain my leisurely reply), we have quietly folded our tent, at least on a structured basis; but will resurface from time to time privately as the book or occasion demands.

The Roman historian and senator Tacitus referred to Christ, his execution by Pontius Pilate, and the existence of early Christians in Rome in his final work, Annals (written ca. AD ), book 15, chapter The context of the passage is the six-day Great Fire of Rome that burned much of the city in AD 64 during the reign of Roman Emperor Nero.

The passage is one of the earliest non-Christian.
