Julian 2002 Aug 09 ANTE DIEM V IDVS AVGVSTI MMDCCLV A.V.C
Explanation of various calendars


     This day is sacred to Sol Indiges, the solar deity. A public sacrifice was made by the priests on the Quirinal. The animals sacrificed by the temples were provided by the wealthy, or by temple donations, and afterwards they were used to provide free meals to the people attending the ceremonies, or to any poor or homeless people in the streets.
      This was the day in MCXXXI A.U.C. (378 A.D.) that the combined forces of the Visigoths and the Ostrogoths inflicted a crushing defeat on the Romans at Hadrianopolis, killing the emperor Valens. The empire never recovered militarily and severe decline set in after this. The event had been entirely unnecessary — the Visigoths had agreed to an alliance in excahnge for land but corrupt Roman officials so exploited them that they became outraged.
