44 BC -- "On the day after the death of Julius Caesar, three suns appeared in the East in the early morning sky which then moved towards each other so that they merged into one. Also at that time, an ox on the outskirts of Rome asked a farmer why he was working so hard, since before very long there would be more of a shortage of people than of grain." -- The Book of Miracles (f°26), ca 1552
