Capitolinus, Julius, "Marcus Aurelius Antoninus", in Scriptores Historiae Augustae, edited by Goold, G. P., translated by Magie, David
[Ch. 8 Verse 4 p. 153]



But now to interrupt the emperor’s happiness and repose, there came the first flood of the Tiber the severest of their time which ruined many houses in the city, drowned a great number of animals, and caused a most severe famine; all these disasters Marcus and Verus relieved by their own personal care and aid.

Aldrete. Floods of the Tiber in Ancient Rome
[p. 30]

[…] Therefore, this flood assailed Rome at some point between the fall of AD 161 and the spring of AD 162. If it followed the usual Tiber seasonal pattern, it most likely occurred in late winter or spring, thus making the most probable date early AD 162.
