    When the whole world, impelled by the force of a general corruption, is immersed in voluptuousness [4]what must then become of virtue? Manu S. Soldiers of the II Parthica killed Maximinus in his tent, along with his son Maximus who had been appointed deputy emperor inand surrendered to Pupienus at the end of June. In the cities of Greece, where they were not under the restraint of a religion which declares that even amongst men a purity of morals is a part of virtue; where a blind passion triumphed with a boundless insolence, and love appeared only in a shape which we dare not mention, while marriage was considered as nothing more than simple friendship [17] ; such was the virtue, simplicity, and chastity of women in those cities, that in this respect hardly any people were ever known to have had a better and wiser polity [18]. On his march to Rome, he either destroyed or imposed enormous fines on towns that did not accept him immediately. Luxury is therefore absolutely necessary in monarchies; and necessary also in despotic states.

    The Historia Augusta states: "The Romans could bear his barbarities no longer—the way in which he called up informers and incited accusers, invented false offences, killed innocent men, condemned all whoever came to trial, reduced the richest men to utter poverty and never sought money anywhere save in some other's ruin, put many generals and many men of consular rank to death for no offence, carried others about in waggons without food and drink, and kept others in confinement, in short neglected nothing which he thought might prove effectual for cruelty—and, unable to suffer these things longer, they rose against him in revolt. The Samnites were descended from the Lacedaemonians: and Plato, whose institutes are only an improvement of those of Lycurgus, enacted very near the same law [38]. Soldiers of the II Parthica killed Maximinus in his tent, along with his son Maximus who had been appointed deputy emperor inand surrendered to Pupienus at the end of June. In the Indies they are very easy under a female government; and it is settled that if the male issue be not of a mother of the same blood, the females born of a mother of the blood-royal must succeed [39].

    This appears by the surprize of historians, who look upon the decisions which Tiberius caused to be given by this tribunal, as singular facts and as a renewal of the ancient course of pleading. Three cannons will result in 3 picks, 4 will offer 4, and 5 will offer 5. Maximinus' and his son's corpses were decapitated and their heads carried to Rome. Extensively researched and vividly rendered, The Ivory Throne conjures up a dramatic world of political intrigues and factions, black magic and conspiracies, crafty ceremonies and splendorous temple treasures, all harnessed in a tragic contest for power and authority in the age of empire.

It is a marvellous achievement and will stoke future scholarship on the area and era. Sumptuary laws may likewise be made with a design to promote a relative frugality: when a government perceiving that foreign merchandizes being at too high a price, will require such an exportation of the home manufactures, as to deprive them of more advantages by the loss of the latter, than they can receive from the possession of the former, they will forbid their being introduced.

AS morals were supposed by the domestic tribunal, they were also supposed by the public accusation; and hence it is that these two things fell together with the public morals, and ended with the republic [22]. The laws concerning the new division of lands insisted upon so eagerly in some republics, were of the most salutary nature.

Admirable in this respect were the institutions of the principal republics of Greece. In the cities of Greece, where they were not under the restraint of a religion which declares that even amongst men a purity of morals is a part of virtue; where a blind passion triumphed with a boundless insolence, and love appeared only in a shape which we dare not mention, while marriage was considered as nothing more than simple friendship [17] ; such was the virtue, simplicity, and chastity of women in those cities, that in this respect hardly any people were ever known to have had a better and wiser polity [18].
