[Eutrop. 10.10. Translated by Rev. John Selby Watson. Henry G. Bohn. 1853]
As he1 was preparing for war against the Parthians, who were then disturbing Mesopotamia, he died in the Villa Publica, at Nicomedia, in the thirty-first year of his reign, and the sixty-sixth of his age. His death was foretold by a star with a tail, which shone for a long time, of extraordinary size, and which the Greeks call a KOMH/THS. He was deservedly enrolled among the gods.
