Quote of the day (from edited sources):
Cneius Pompeius was the first of our countrymen to subdue the Jews. Availing himself of the right of conquest, he entered the temple. Thus it became commonly known that the place stood empty with no similitude of gods within, and that the shrine had nothing to reveal.
Book V Chapter 9: The Jews. Their history according to Tacitus (cont.)
