48 CE: Roman troops stand guard on the roof of the Temple portico to prevent rioting among the crowds assembled for Passover. One of the soldiers moons the Jews, and the infuriated crowd riots. 30,000 people are trampled to death in the ensuing violence.

70 CE: Romans soldiers are trapped in the Temple portico by a Jewish ruse. Longus, a young Roman, kills himself rather than damage his reputatation. The illustration, not of ""Longus"" but of a woman, is evidently intended as a generic depiction of suicide.
