Today With Tiberius

The emperor Tiberius was in good spirits today and spent an unusual amount of time with a delegation of two from distant India. The duo, Gonod and his son Ganid, brought greetings from the princes of their native land, which is located far to the east of the frontiers of the empire. The Indians were accompanied by an interpreter and scribe who also spoke at some length with the emperor. Tiberius was very impressed with the man and acknowledged the unusual skill and exceptionally amiable manner of this Jewish scribe from Damascus. Tiberius was overheard telling an aide: “If I had that fellow's kingly bearing and gracious manner, I would be a real emperor, eh?”
