51. C. Caelio L. Domitio coss. AUC 660/94 BC
There was a nine-day sacrifice, because among the Volscian tribe it had rained stones. At Vulsinium a new moon waned and did not reappear except on the following day at the third hour. A two-headed, four-footed, four-handed girl with twin sets of female genitalia was born dead. A fire-bird was seen and killed. In the territory of the Vestini it rained stones in a villa. A torch appeared in the sky and the whole sky seemed to be ablaze. The earth flowed with blood and congealed. Dogs gnawed stones and tiles in public. At Faesulae a huge multitude was seen wearing funereal garments and with pallid expressions, walking as a group among the tombs. Because of Nasica the Spanish chieftains who were in revolt, were put to death, and their cities laid waste.
