martin agrees with us
In Response To: Julius Ptolemy ()

.. julie.. in an EXTREMELY thought--provoking tome, martin's 'the people that history forgot,' the author pretty much agrees with mr pope - - - only martin writes in terms of 'semites' {would that include egyptians} 'conquering' rome - - - mostly via population-explosion.

We know that, after fall of jerusalem temple, thousands upon thousands of jewish slaves arrived in italian peninsula -- apparently also edomites and nabataeans and other folks from middle-east. At the same time, we know that birth--rate among romans and other 'latins' in the peninsula declined.
