Marcus Aurelius
Marcus Aurelius

Cassius Dio mentions in his “Roman History” that in 172 CE the Roman army of Marcus Aurelius was trapped by the much larger German forces of Quadi. Roman legionaries suffered from scorching and thirst, but it was said that the god of rain caused the rain, which helped them.

This miracle had a profound effect on the Romans, because they finally achieved a definite victory.
