The Roman Empire

Imperial Rome

It is said that the Sibyllineoracle predicted the Fall of Rome, when the power of the Roman Empire was at its height: "O haughty Rome, the divine chastisementshall come upon thee; fire shall consume thee; thy wealth shall perish;foxes and wolves shall dwell among thy ruins: and then what land thatthou hast enslaved shall be thy ally, and which of thy gods shall savethee? For there shall be confusion over the face of the whole earth, andthe fall of cities shall come."
