Newsflash! Rome revokes the exile of the poet Ovid, 2,000 years after his death!!

“Famous for his Metamorphoses and The Art of Love, Ovid was exiled by the Emperor Augustus to a remote town on the coast of the Black Sea, in what is today Romania, in 8 AD.

No one is sure why the great poet was banished but it may have had something to do with an indiscretion related to the emperor’s grand-daughter.

But alas, Rome has relented. Last week “a motion to officially revoke the exile order was approved by Rome city council.”
