Emperor Augustus died on this day in AD 14. This coin, struck c. 19 BC, depicts the wreathed head of Augustus on the front, and on the reverse a comet with eight rays and the words Divvs Ivlivs, meaning Divine Julius.

Caesar’s Comet was interpreted by Romans as a sign of the deification of recently assassinated Julius Caesar. Reported to have shone for seven successive days in 44 BC, it was thought to have been his soul.

Jason tried his best not to stare when the Ambassador of Pluto arrived with the Daughter of Pluto. The first thing that struck him when both appeared was that the ambassador already reeked with a deadly aura. 

He could feel his own soul trying to leap from his chest and get swallowed by the Stygian iron sword that was sheathed on this odd demigod’s hip. The girl, immediately Jason thought, could use work. He could tell that she’d never lifted a sword a day in her life.

But the boy was at least six feet tall, with a wide set of shoulders and an angular jawline that was sculpted to follow a skull. 

A much more attractive skull, Jason thought hazily as they gathered to determine Hazel Levesque’s fate. The murmurs were loud and deafening amongst the centurions, Dakota included as he tried to get Jason to speak.
