i gots to flo like horace

and now for today's 'random OCD fact'!!!

do you know who marcus aurelius carus was? well, friend, he was a praetorian prefect from Narbo who overthrew Probus after rebelling in Raetia in AD 282. Leaving his elder son, Carinus, as Caesar in the west, Carus marched against Persia with Numerianus. He captured Ctesiphon, but, advancing further, was killed, perhaps by treachery (summer 283). He was the first emperor not to seek the senate's approval of his accession.
