Vitellius 69 The Roman Empire “officially” begins by tradition in 27 BC when Octavian receives the title “Augustus” — which then becomes the name by which we know him. We might think that the Empire, Imperium, begins with Augustus becoming Emperor, Imperator, but that is not the case. Imperator simply means “commander,” and this had long been in use with a specific meaning. An imperator was someone with a military command and imperium, which meant both military and civil authority in the area of his command. This made Julius Caesar essentially the dictator of Gaul , once he had conquered it. That was dangerous, indeed fatal, for the Republic; but in those terms Julius Caesar began the creation of the Roman Empire already as an “emperor. It accompanies the institutional changes that were effected or completed by Augustus.
DL West acres A historic log barn, a corral and a number of old out-buildings are located adjacent to the creek at the west side of this lot. Where Lewis creek leaves the property there is a waterfall which by the original settlers was used to produce electricity. The edge of this lot is suited very well for building a home with views of the Rockies to the east, and a view over Wasa Lake with the Purcell Mountains and Kimberley ski hill in the distance.
On the creek 2 pump houses 50 hp and 30 hp can provide irrigation to the land.

Recently the subject of guys and breakups came up and Sabrina and I went back and forth about what guys generally go through when they breakup. Simple enough to say, but I know plenty of women will talk about how some guy came off like an insensitive jackass after the relationship fell apart because of his actions post-breakup. If a guy is profoundly obnoxious or terrible after a breakup, it is most often a testament to how rough the breakup was on him. Some people cope by lashing out. Jerry Seinfeld once said that breaking up a relationship needs to be like taking off a Band-aid — One motion: In the same regard, when a relationship ends, it is much much harder for a guy to go back and discuss and revisit and talk through and explain, etc.
Personally, I have had breakups where I pretty much went cold. I wanted her to be OK, I wanted good things for her in life, but I knew that nothing was going to make the situation better. No discussion was going to fix things, no clarity was to be had — it would have just been an emotional toilet for both of us. I realize it probably came off jerky, but when I cut off communication, my heart is in the right place.
But what about the guy that immediately gets into a new relationship? This could be for a few reasons. It has its cost though and eventually devolves into a crippling neediness.

Parmenides, Theaetetus, Phaedrus c. Transmission of Plato’s Works Except for the Timaeus, all of Plato’s works were lost to the Western world until medieval times, preserved only by Moslem scholars in the Middle East.

A Byzantine fresco of Saint Mercurius a Christian victim of the Decian persecution , dated , from Ohrid , Macedonia In January , Decius is said to have issued one of the most remarkable Roman imperial edicts. From the numerous surviving texts from Egypt, recording the act of sacrifice, it appears that the edict itself was fairly clear: When they sacrificed they would obtain a certificate libellus recording the fact that they had complied with the order.
Potter, Decius did not try to impose the superiority of the Roman pantheon over any other gods. It is very probable that the edict was an attempt to legitimize his position and to respond to a general unease provoked by the passing of the Roman millennium. The sacrifice was “on behalf of” Latin pro the Emperor, not to the Emperor, since a living Emperor was not considered divine.
Certificates were issued to those who satisfied the commissioners during the persecution of Christians under Decius. Forty-six such certificates have been published, all dating from , four of them from Oxyrhynchus. This outbreak is referred to as the “Plague of Cyprian ” the bishop of Carthage , where both the plague and the persecution of Christians were especially severe. Cyprian’s biographer Pontius gave a vivid picture of the demoralizing effects of the plague[ citation needed ] and Cyprian moralized the event in his essay De mortalitate.
In Carthage, the “Decian persecution”, unleashed at the onset of the plague, sought out Christian scapegoats. Decius’ edicts were renewed under Valerian in and repealed under his son, Gallienus , in Fighting the Goths and death[ edit ] The Goths enter the Balkans[ edit ] The barbarian incursions into the Empire were becoming more and more daring and frequent whereas the Empire was facing a serious economic crisis in Decius’ time.
Geography[ edit ] Unlike the other Fraser Valley municipalities, Mission is mostly forested upland with only small floodplains lining the shore of the Fraser River. Some benches of farmland rise in succession northwards above the core developed area of the city. Mission was once the heart of the berry industry in the Fraser Valley, with “Home of the Big Red Strawberry” as Mission’s slogan in the s and into the s.
The more southerly portion of the municipality is bounded on the west by the lower reaches of the Stave River , which consists mostly of the lakewaters of two hydroelectric reservoirs, Stave Lake and Hayward Lake. A small portion of the lower Stave still runs free in its last two miles before its confluence with the Fraser at Ruskin ; its last three-quarters of a mile forms the border with the larger municipality of Maple Ridge to the west.
Revelstoke BC, with a much smaller and newer farm, is the second.

Anno Domini The year numbering system used with Common Era notation was devised by the Christian monk Dionysius Exiguus in the year to replace the Era of Martyrs system, because he did not wish to continue the memory of a tyrant who persecuted Christians. Bede also introduced the practice of dating years before what he supposed was the year of birth of Jesus,  and the practice of not using a year zero.
The term “Common Era” is traced back in English to its appearance as ” Vulgar Era” to distinguish dates on the Ecclesiastic calendar in popular use from dates of the regnal year , the year of reign of a sovereign, typically used in national law. The first use of the Latin term vulgaris aerae [e] discovered so far was in a book by Johannes Kepler. Thus, “the common era of the Jews”,   “the common era of the Mahometans”,  “common era of the world”,  “the common era of the foundation of Rome”.
Furthermore, several style guides now prefer or mandate its usage. Others have taken a different approach.

The scene and the ship, more likely based on the above shown pottery fragment from Kynos, is related to the mithical first Achaean attach to Troy lead by Herakles and his followers. Philistine wares are prevalent at Beit Shemesh. Therefore, it seems probable that the prototype of the ship engraved on the seal was Philistine TYPE VI “Tragana Cluster” With the continuation of the keel into a spur projecting beyound the straight sterpost, the Achaeans created a new hull-form, best represented by the vessels on the pyxis from Tragana and the larnax from Gazi.
The keel is flat, the sterpost generally straight with a slight curvature at the junction; essentially, then, the shape established by Skyros craft- both types share the loose-footed sail common at the end of the Late Bronze Age and not attested for Minoan ship- with the addition of the spur. This must have amounted to a complete redessigning of the bow, a task which, taking into account the conservatism prevalent among shipbuilders, surely was undertaken with a definite purpose in mind, in view of a net gain in performance.
A speculative reason behind this development may be sought in the ability to beach at speed without damage the bow. Any suggestion of employing the spur as a ram is groundless: It is a long lean ship with a low gunwale, equipped with a ram as on the Middle Helladic Iolkos fragments but more swift-looking and narrow. It is probably meant to represent a warship or one suited to pirate raids, not a merchantman.
The mast is centered, with an oval sail, whose form is more influenced by the filled concentric arcs on the ornamental panels of the pyxis than by marine facts. This heavy warship had 50 oars and it is shown with both sails and oars but more likely these would not be used at the same time being the sails only used when the wind was in the right direction. The latticework panels popular in the period are used for the steering platform in the stern, underneath which the steering oar and tiller project on the diagonal, and for the lookout platform or windscreen in the high stem.
