Domitian’s Letter to Terentius Maximus
“Flavius Archippus the philosopher has prevailed with me to give an order that six hundred thousand sesterces3 be laid out in the purchase of an estate for the support of him and his family, in the neighbourhood of Prusias,4 his native country. Let this be accordingly done; and place that sum to the account of my benefactions.”
