Fact of the Day: Antonine Plague

The Antonine Plague was a plague that effected Europe from 165-180. It was brought in by Roman soldiers returning from campaigns in Western Asia. While this disease was mostly like not the same as the Black Plague, but the most educated guesses were either measles or smallpox.


  1. Germs from other places, never fun.

  2. Even in today's time, things can seem scary if it's new to our area. But then look at the measles and mumps returning after years of control here in the states. By the way, Ted will have to go thru his baby shots and vaccines , over again, since he had the bone marrow transplant. Crazy huh? Blessings, xoxo, Susie
