A Roman milliarium (milestone) found in Jordan on the old road leading to Mount Nebo. The inscription, freely translated, informs the passerby that "these works were the works of the architects of Furnius Giulianus in 213 AD at the time of emperor Caracalla who is remembered in the inscription with all his official titles: Emperor Cesar Marcus Aurelius Antonius Pius Felix Augustus Particus Brittannicus Pontifex Maximus, at his fourth consulate, restored the roads and bridges." The only thing it doesn't say is: "Your tax denarii at work."

So sometime before I see some of you on the 12th, we will hit a half a million visits. Considering that represents far less than a year's worth of blogging, not bad. Not bad at all. Thanks, guys and gals. Thanks.
