  • Julius Caesar organizes the first Naumachie in Rome . For this purpose, he is having an artificial lake created on the Marsfeld . This spectacle depicts a battle between Phoenician and Egyptian ships. Allegedly four thousand rowers and two thousand deck soldiers take part in this battle, so that it is estimated that a total of 22 ships are involved. The rush of spectators is so great that spectators arriving from outside Rome have to camp out on the streets.
