Facta igitur est in his quoque commentariis eadem rerum disparilitas quae fuit in illis annotationibus pristinis, quas breviter et indigeste et incondite eruditionibus lectionibusque variis feceramus. Sed quoniam longinquis per hiemem noctibus in agro, sicuti dixi, terrae Galliae commentationes hasce ludere ac facere exorsi sumus, idcirco eas inscripsimus "Noctium" esse "Gallicanarum", nihil imitati festivitates inscriptionum quas plerique alii utriusque linguae scriptores in id genus libris fecerunt. Vous retrouverez dans ces pages la variété qu'il y avait dans les notes de départ que j'avais prises rapidement, sans les mettre en ordre ni les rédiger, sur des sujets divers au hasard de mes lectures.
Une drôle de découverte pour ce drôle d'empereur: un pilleur de tombes pris en flagrant délit donne aux policiers l'emplacement de la tombe. Le pilleur essayait de revendre une statue provenant du site, lors de son arrestation. Il aura fallu pratiquement 2000 ans pour découvrir le lieu de sépulture d'un des empereurs les plus connus de la Rome antique. Caligula, empereur fou ou tyran provocateur, a laissé une trace indélébile dans l'Histoire européenne. Dépravé, sadique et criminel, il fut assassiné par sa garde personnelle à l'âge de 28ans en 41 de notre ère. Découverte du tombeau de Caligula

Caracalla, Museo della Civilta, Rome Caracalla was born on 4 April AD 188 in Lugdunum (Lyons), being named Lucius Septimius Bassianus. His last name was given him in honour of the father of his mother Julia Domna, Julius Bassianus, high priest of the sun god El-Gabal at Emesa. The nickname Caracalla was given to him, as he tended to wear a long Gallic cloak of that name. In AD 195, his father, emperor Septimius Severus, declared him Caesar (junior emperor), changing his name to Marcus Aurelius Antoninus. This announcement should spark off a bloody conflict between Severus and Clodius Albinus, the man who had been named Caesar previously. Caracalla

THE CHRISTIAN CATACOMBS OF ROME The catacombs of St.Callixtus are among the greatest and most important of Rome . They originated about the middle of the second century and are part of a cemeterial complex. In it were buried tens of martyrs, 16 popes and very many Christians. They are named after the deacon Callixtus who, at the beginning of the third century, was appointed by pope Zephyrinus as the administrator of the cemetery and so the catacombs of St.Callixtus became the official cemetery of the Church of Rome.

Below is a list of the consuls of the Roman Republic from its foundation until the battle of Actium in 31 B.C. There were normally two consuls elected for each year. If during that year a consul resigned from office or died, a "suffect" (replacement) consul was elected in his place. During various years of the first two centuries of the Republic, colleges (boards) of varying numbers of "military tribunes with consular power" were elected in place of consuls. The tradition also records (falsely--see below) four years when only dictators were chosen in place of consuls and another five years when no magistrates at all are preserved ("anarchy"). The list normally gives the "ordinary" (regular) two consuls, and any other magistrates are clearly indicated as such. Consuls of the Roman Republic

Cui dono... Welcome to project Libellus, an ongoing attempt to provide a library of classical Latin (and Greek) texts with minimal redistribution restrictions. The archive is physically located at the University of Washington, Seattle, and is currently being run by Konrad Schroder and Owen Ewald. The intent of the project is to make available fairly good-quality texts at no cost; it is not to provide guaranteed top quality texts. If you are willing to pay for extreme quality, there are other organizations that will allow you to do that. The texts that we supply (rather than mirror) are either those donated to us (or released into the Public Domain) by the editor, or those whose copyright has expired, and so are in the Public Domain.

Caligula March, 37 CE: At about 25 years old, Caligula was named Rome's third emperor, the first direct descendant of Augustus to take the throne (click here for a coin on which Caligula emphasizes this relationship). The reign began with good feelings all around, since Caligula declared an amnesty for all Romans imprisoned or exiled under Tiberius, posthumously restored honor to his mother and brothers, and stopped the treason trials, getting rid of the informers in the process. One month after his accession, his grandmother, Antonia, died. October, 37 CE: Caligula fell seriously ill, with what was described at the time as a “brain fever”; there was great mourning in Rome, and much joy at his recovery. There were a number of freedmen in his close circle who attained considerable influence: Helicon, his chamberlain; Apelles, a tragic actor; and most wealthy and powerful of all, Callistus, a kind of imperial secretary.
