|“||It has been 20 years since Ieff left. The Ætas ab Brian lay incomplete in Ieff’s 32nd year, fourth month and 27th day in the Venetia Bibliotheca. Princep Carico died eight years ago, aged eighty-seven, I myself now seventy-seven. His reforms have brought the Imperivm together and the future is bright. He chose another successor of equally great administrative abilities as well as kindness and imagination. Even after I returned to Roma to tell The Princep myself that his son had left, he was not angry, he only told me to wait for his return to continue his story.||”|

However, things are changing in the world, and the 22nd century ab Urbe condita is still young.
