Book review

All that was done so far in Rome, it would be no more than a theatrical performance, if it had not been approved by more substantial authority legions. Leaving the senators plenty to indulge their dreams of freedom and ambition, Tacitus went to the Thracian camp and was presented to the assembled troops praetorian prefect as the same sovereign, whom they asked for the Senate and that the Senate has given them. As soon as the prefect was silent, the emperor himself addressed the soldiers with a speech that was eloquent and decent. He satisfied their greed generous distribution of money under the guise of salary and gifts. He also managed to instill in them respect for their noble statement that, although he advanced in years did not allow him to serve them an example of military prowess, his vsescha advice would be worthy of the Roman general, who replaced the brave Avreliana17) While the late Emperor was preparing for the second expedition to the East he entered into negotiations with the Scythian people of the Alans, spread their tents not far from Meotian Bay.

Abused in this way acts in which they saw the mockery and deceit, Alani decided to avenge this insult and get the weapons charges, which they denied; and as they moved with the usual speed of the Tatars, they soon entered the province Pontus, Cappadocia, Cilicia and Galatia. Legions, who from the opposite shores of the Bosphorus could almost see the flames burning towns and villages, urged his commander in chief, so he led them against the enemy. Tacitus did so, as it should when his years in his position. He proved to the barbarians as the integrity and power of the empire. A significant part of the Alans satisfied the strict execution of the promises they Aurelian data, gave back booty and captives, and quietly retreated to the steppes beyond the Phasis. And against those who have abandoned the peace agreement, the emperor undertook a successful campaign. With access to the brave and experienced veterans, he delivered in a few weeks from the horrors of the Asian province Scythian nashestviya18}
