Ovid, a popular writer, published Ars Amatoria ("The Art of Love"). This is a series of three books about the art of seduction, written in verse. The publication may be at least partly why the Emperor Augustus banishes Ovid to the provinces.

2 AD - Heir to Augustus named.
Tiberius is summoned back to Rome and named the heir of Augustus. He is then sent off to the Rhine frontier, where he advances to the Elbe and plans the conquest of the Marcomanni, a Germanic tribe.
