Rhodos, Carian Islands, c. 125 - 88 B.C.
|Rhodos|, |Rhodos,| |Carian| |Islands,| |c.| |125| |-| |88| |B.C.|, After surrendering its independence in 164 B.C., Rhodes became a cultural and educational center for Roman noble families and was especially noted for its teachers of rhetoric, such as Hermagoras and the unknown author of Rhetorica ad Herennium. At first, the state enjoyed numerous privileges, but these were later lost in various machinations of Roman politics. Cassius eventually invaded the island and sacked the city. In the early Empire Rhodes became a favorite place for political exiles. Under Augustus, Tiberius spent a brief term of exile on Rhodes. Saint Paul brought Christianity to the island.
