Sixteenth year of the reign of Darius.

§Rome

Quirinius of Rome was executed.

The crucifixion of this Roman savior is remarkable for the parallel features to that of the Judaean saviour, not only in the circumstances of his crucifixion, but also in much of his antecedent life.

He is represented, like Christ:

  • As having been conceived and brought forth by a virgin.
  • His life was sought by the reigning king, Amulius.
  • He was of royal blood, his mother being of kingly descent.
  • He was put to death by wicked hands or crucified.
  • At his mortal exit the whole earth is said to have been enveloped in darkness, as in the case of Christ, Krishna, and Prometheus.
  • And finally he is resurrected, and ascends back to heaven.
