This Day in Ancient History

On this day in 98 A.D., the relatively little known Roman Emperor Titus Flavius Domitianus, know to us as Domitian, was assassinated in a palace plot and the Senator Nerva, an erstwhile friend of Domitian, took over as Emperor the same day. Sic transit...

At least there is still a good statue of him.

His military ability were middling at best, but the skills and organization of the Legions kept him, and the Empire, in the game all during his 15 year reign.
