There's talk of naming the months that follow that of Augustus, named for
the Pater Patriae, after me and my dear departed Faustina. I really must decline,
though we are both terribly flattered. I should reward my subjects appropriately.
Perhaps I'll provide magnificent games, with elephants and tigers and rhinoceroses.
Maybe I'll throw in some crocodiles and hippopotami!
