Chronicles of Darkness: 204 BCE
- Hard-pressed by Carthage, Romans bring a sacred stone — Magna Mater, the "Great Mother of the Gods" — from Phrygia to fulfill a prophecy. They build a temple on Palatine Hill to house it. Roman patricians have sold their city's soul to the bloodiest goddess in Asia, Cybele.
