Bar Kokhba Revolt
This inscription, in one of the bathhouses of Cyrene, commemorates how the city was rebuilt after the tumulto Iudaico, the disorders caused by the Jews.
Dio Cassius reports 220,000 gentiles were killed. He also reports cannibalism and mutilation.
Tens of thousands of Jews were killed by the Romans to restore order.
