The Hippodrome was an ancient Roman design to hold horse and chariot racing.The most famous one-The Circus Maximus- was 600 metres long and 200 metres wide. It could hold up to 250,000 people (1/4 the population of Rome). It was built into a hillside, and the material dug out was used to create support on the other side of the building. Seats ran in tiers around the u-shaped arena (except for the open end ). A fence ran down the middle - called a Spine- to make laps. Chariots were pulled by 2 - 4 horses, and were driven seven times around the ring at extremely fast speeds. Great skill was needed and sometimes a lot of accidents happened, and drivers were often trampled to death. Big crowds turned out to see the teams. There were four teams - reds, white, blues and greens - and each team, and their fans wore these colours. Huge bets were placed on the races. At one end of the track, there were 12 boxes, where the chariots wait. The judges sat above, who announced the start of the race, by dropping a white handkerchief. The rope in front of the horses was lifted and the race began. Drivers were famous and made a lot of money; Gaius Apuleis, charioteer of the reds, a Spaniard, aged 42 years , 7 months and 23 days. He drove his first chariot for the whites in AD 122. He won his first victory with the reds in AD 131.

A Brief History of Rome The founding of Rome goes back to the very early days of civilization. It is so old, it is today known as 'the eternal city'. The Romans believed that their city was founded in the year 753 BC. Modern historians though believe it was the year 625 BC. A speech in the Roman senate Early Rome was governed by kings, but after only seven of them had ruled, the Romans took power over their own city and ruled themselves. They then instead had a council known as the 'senate' which ruled over them. From this point on one speaks of the 'Roman Republic'. The word 'Republic' itself comes from the Latin (the language of the Romans) words ' res publica ' which mean 'public matters' or 'matters of state'.
The senate under the kings had only been there to advise the king. Now the senate appointed a consul, who ruled Rome like a king, but only for one year. - This was a wise idea, as like that, the consul ruled carefully and not as a tyrant, for he knew that otherwise he could be punished by the next consul, once his year was up. Rome knew four classes of people. This division was very important to the Romans.

(AD 40 - 81)
Titus, the elder son of emperor Vespasian, was born in AD 39.
He was educated together with Claudius' son Britannicus, who became a close friend of his. From AD 61 to 63 he served in Germany and Britain as a military tribune. AFter this he returned to Rome and married Arrecina Tertulla, the daughter of a former commander of the praetorian guard. But only a year later Arrecina died and Titus married yet again, this time Marcia Furnilla. She was of distinguished family, which had connections to opponents of Nero. After the failure of the Pisonian conspiracy, Titus saw it best not to be connected in any way with any potential plotters and hence divorced Marcia in AD 65. In the same year Titus was appointed quaestor, and then became commander one of his father's three legions in Judaea in AD 67 (XV Legion 'Apollinaris'). In late AD 68 Titus was sent by Vespasian as a messenger to confirm his father's recognition of Galba as emeperor. But at reaching Corinth he learned that Galba was already dead and turned back.

Important People Famous Romans Julius Caesar Julius Caesar was born in 100 BC. He was a great soldier. He helped to take over new land for the Roman Empire. He made many changes like the new calendar and the starting of a daily newspaper. He also totally changed the law. He became the most powerful man and sole leader in Rome and some people thought he was too powerful and that he wanted to be king. A group of senators (led by Brutus and Cassius) decided to kill him and take his power back. They surrounded him and stabbed him with their daggers on 15th March 44 BC.
Emperor Augustus Augustus' proper name was Octavian. He was the adopted son of Julius Caesar. After Caesar's death he took over with two other men. One of them was Mark Antony. Later on, these two fell out and Augustus beat Antony in battle. Octavian ruled on his own and was given the special name Augustus. He was a clever and fair ruler and when he died in AD14, the people did not want to go back to a republic.
Emperor Claudius Claudius was a wise ruler. During his reign Britain became part of the empire. He came to Britain to accept the surrender of the leaders of the tribes of south-eastern Britain at Colchester in Essex.

Julius Caesar
Young Caesar
If you don't know much about Roman history, it may surprise you to learn that Julius Caesar was not born royal and it is debatable whether he should be called an emperor. But he set the stage for the restoration of Rome's monarchy and founded a family that ruled the empire for nearly 100 years. He was born around 100 BC and named Gaius Julius Caesar after his father, a low-ranking Roman official. Young Caesar's mother, Aurelia, was the daughter of a former consul. The family was not extremely wealthy or powerful, but they were well-connected members of Rome's aristocracy, the patrician class. Caesar was proud of his ancestry, claiming to be descended from both the legendary Roman king Ancus Marcius and the goddess Venus. Nonetheless, his family was identified with the popular or democratic party; his aunt Julia married the "new man" Gaius Marius, who had risen from a humble background to become a prominent politician and general. When Caesar was 15 or 16, his father died. At that time Rome was engaged in a civil war, and Caesar made it clear which side he was on by marrying Cornelia, daughter of the popular leader Cinna. The marriage did not turn out to be a good career move for Caesar in the long run. Cinna was murdered and his enemy Sulla seized control of the government. Sulla ordered Caesar to divorce Cornelia, but Caesar refused and went into hiding to avoid arrest. Eventually Sulla was persuaded to pardon the rebellious young man, but he warned his followers that Caesar would be the ruin of the patrician party.

The Goths and Later Germanic Invaders
Little is known about the early history of the Goths before they came into contact with the Romans. What little evidence we have indicates that they probably came from Scandinavia. In the first millennium B. C., they crossed the Baltic Sea and migrated into Northeastern Europe in the area occupied by Poland today. Later, they moved again and made their home in the area north of the Black Sea. Nobody knows for sure what caused these migrations but they became known as the Wanderings of the Peoples. Anthropologists speculate that changes in climate caused the land to produce less food and forage for animals during this period and the excess population had to look for new homes. The Roman historian Tacitus describes the Germans, of whom the Goths are a group, as a people with nomadic lifestyle and a love for warfare. They looked down on farming as a way of life and actually considered the hardworking farmer lazy because he was not willing to make a living by warfare and plunder. According to Tacitus, the Germans considered laziness to be "acquiring by honest toil that which you might procure by the shedding of blood". It is interesting to note that racism was just as much a part of the human experience 1900 years ago as it is today. In this case, it was a short, olive skinned people who were the dominant culture and the tall blond and redheaded people were considered brutish, ugly and oversized, lacking in intelligence, difficult to civilize, and overly fond of warfare, murder, and pillaging. In spite of his comments, Tacitus does show admiration for the energetic and freedom - loving German people.

Roman architecture, sculpture and literature were strongly influenced by Greek models. However, the Roman buildings were large and ornate with a grandeur of their own. The Roman builders had concrete available unlike the Greeks. Another great advantage for the Romans was the use of the semi-circular arches to form vaults and domes. The great Pantheon shows many examples of these. Roman builders could not use marble all the time, because it was expensive and there was a limited amount. However there was a plentiful supply of terracotta, stone and brick. Early in their development they invented the material concrete. It was made by mixing pazzolana, a strong volcanic material with rubble and a mixture of limes. The concrete was used to make walls, domes, vaulted rooves of solid concrete, concrete with brick ribs and faced structure with marble, or mosaic. Tools such as a plumb bob, a bronze square, bronze dividers, bronze foot rule and chisels were used in building. Roads were very important to the Roman Empire and they had a great ability to build roads. They were the first to build roads on the foundation basis. The roads were paved and they had ditches on either side so water could run off. There are roads still standing which were built by the Romans. They were wide enough to take a Roman chariot with two horses. There were laybys to let other chariots past. Roads were used often and we know this because of the grooves left by the chariots. Communication was good in the Roman Empire due to the roads so architectural ideas spread fast.

Roman Emperors varied in their styles of leadership. Augustus was a much-loved emperor and therefore given his title meaning "divine." His rule is famous for the Pax Romana in which agriculture, the arts, and literature flourished. Aurelius is also remembered as a just ruler. He was reasonable towards enemies, sympathetic towards slaves, and thoughtful of his people.
Although the Emperors can often be remembered for ruling justly or being tolerant, they still wielded an enormous amount of power. In building his city of Constantinople, Constantine significantly increased taxes on the Roman people. Rulers were restricted: they had to maintain some respect of the people and officials to ensure their safe place as emperors; however, their power was enormous in respect to the void of power that slaves had. Emperors did not have absolute power, and slaves were not absolutely subservient (they could be freed by their masters), yet the incredible gap between these two classes in Roman society shows it to be a very unequal society.
Along with mythological figures , replications of emperors were some of the most widespread use of artwork in the Roman Empire. Sculptures were used as a way to revere the important leaders and to make their presence felt throughout the Empire. The prospect of slaves having sculptures made of them was ludicrous at the time because they weren't considered to be a part of society. Emperors are always represented with strength and grandeur, presenting a society of prosperity, but in fact the society was very unequal.

At the time of Caesar's assassination, Octavian had no official power. Only after he marched on Rome and forced the senate to name him consul, was he established as a power to be reckoned with. In 43 B.C., Octavian, Marcus Antonius ( Marc Antony In 40 B.C., Antony married Octavia, Octavian's sister, and later deserted her for Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt.

A Short History of the Roman Empire
~~ Paul V. Hartman ~~
T he empire which was to rule all of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, began as a farming community on the Tiber River in central Italy. This village and its surrounding areas was occupied in the 700 BC era by a people called the "Latins." By 500 BC the area was dominated by a people to the north of Rome known as the Etruscans. The Latins encouraged surrounding tribes to join them in opposing the Etruscans, and by 300 BC, after many encounters, the Latins ruled central and southern Italy.
I n 264 BC, the Latins, now centered at Rome and known as Romans, began to dispute the territorial ambitions of the Carthaginians, grown strong on the seacoast of present day Tunis as an original outpost of the Phoenicians. The encounters are known as the "Punic Wars" and include the famous episode of Hanibal crossing the Alps with elephants to attack Rome from the north. Carthage would finally be destroyed in 146 BC, adding Sicily, Corsica, and Sardinia to the beginning Roman "empire".
B y 133 BC, Rome had added Spain, northern Italy as far as the Alps, Greece, and present day Turkey to its map. In 55 BC Julius Caesar invaded Britain. By 70 AD Rome ruled every country that touched the Mediterranean, all of Europe, Egypt and the rest of Africa above the Sahara, grabbing more land with every passing year. Although the Roman empire was not the largest empire in total territory in world history (that distinction goes to the Mongols and the offspring of Genghis Khan), it was the greatest in "square miles continuously occupied per year", and had an influence in language, law, education, government, architecture, and culture that has never been equaled.

Thomas Banchich

Canisius College
In the course of a digression on a Persian surprise attack on Antioch during the reign of Gallienus (253-268), Ammianus Marcellinus (23.5.3) mentions that a certain "Mareades [ PIR 273], who had inconsiderately brought the Persians there to the destructions of his own people, was burned alive" (23.5.3, trans. Rolfe, II, p. 335). A fragment of the so-called Anonymous Continuator of Cassius Dio , who is probably to be identified with Peter the Patrician, clearly deals with the same individual, though calling him Mariadnes and granting to the Antiochenes advance knowledge of the Persian approach. In addition, the Anonymous FHG IV, p. 192 = Excerpta de Sententiis 157, p. 264). Since this fragment immediately precedes one which deals with the prelude to formal recognition of Aemilianus as Augustus in 253, its author set the event described therein in the early 250s.
