In 1723(970) Silverus Aquila at 53 from Sicilia was appointed emperor. Raetia and Noricum were both given Senatorial seats in 1729(976). After a lengthy reconstruction period the armies in Parthia were sent into Bactria. Along the way, permanent contact with the Tang was re-established. Both nations were of the frame of mind of two friends by association separated by cataclysmic events.

The Tang now had problems with Nihhon, a once fractious island nation paying tribute to the Sinicans but now united by a Daimyo who put the Roman technologies of vaposcurr and the Sinican invention of niter powder and rockets into use. The Nihonians somehow against even the plagues that decimated the known world had created an empire continuing to grow at a slow but unstoppable pace, already several territories not directly owned or allied to the Tang in the Yellow Sea area had fallen to the new empire. The commanding dynasty called the Heian also encouraged great cultural growth in the nation during the time of world-wide illness. As of yet Nihhonia seemed to have no immediate intension of direct war with the Sinican Empire but they sure weren’t friendly.

1734(981) the city of Moskva was founded.

After conquering Bactria in 1734(981) and with great difficulty, for even Rome’s Vapscurr took time to travel so far, India was conquered with Sinican support over the next 40 years (though the whole of the officially recognized region was declared conquered in just 10). The civilizing of India had much potential for bettering both trade (indigo dye, jute, silk, and tea) and the lives of the locals. In return for the Tang’s help, Rome assisted the Tang in their conquest of the Tuban (Tibetan) Kingdom, once a Sinican ally, but a treaty dispute justified the invasion.

The Indian cultural aspects of friendship between strangers and closeness of family ties became a popular minority of cultural adoption throughout the Empire, some people were reminded of Alexander the Great’s attempts to mix eastern and western culture. In the long run as India's culture became known by word and by migration, family values found new acceptance in the empire as such ties had been weakening. India's caste system however, would lead to friction as the imperial government slowly tried to grind out a millennia old custom that didn't always sit well with Romans.

Also this year, Guilius Veranius Hamon of a Gallia Lugdunensis through partial experimentation and theory, estimated that the Primum Frigidum ought be be around -550 Galerii.

In 1739(986), Mazun was retaken.

From 1740-42(987-989), the Bosporus and the Caucus provinces were brought back. Pogurez armies sent to look imposing were routed and some Pogurez claimed territory in Bosporos was taken.

1740's(987+) the Neo-Pogurez Cilaf began its decline.

From 1743-44(990-991), Hibernia was conquered.

The Kievian Rus was the most civilized barbarian nation but its decline had begun as trade with the deteriorating nearby barbarian nations began petering out as they swayed to Rome’s trade offers or they no longer needed much of what the Rus had to offer.

Empire 1744(991)

It was now 4 years into Indus Horatius’ rule (he had been a prominent Republican general in taking India) and explorations to rediscover Terranova began.
