Cleopatra’s seized treasure allowed him to pay his soldiers, securing their loyalty. By the 1450s, however, in Mainz, Germany, Johann Gutenberg was already assembling the elements for his printing press, which would eventually doom this fine art. Among the Italian scholars who devoted themselves to this work a foremost place must be assigned to Politian (1454-1494), a man of remarkable genius and learning.

Amongst metals, bronze was the material that was used for the purpose of decorations. Caesar's assassination caused political and social turmoil in Rome; without the dictator's leadership, the city was ruled by his friend and colleague, Mark Antony.

Historically, the best accounts of this comes not from the Hindus themselves but from Chinese and Western observers. However, this origin already gives rise to a proto-ethical dimension, first insofar as the members of the primitive city each do their own work (the structure of what will emerge as the virtue of justice), which is fleshed out when political rulers are established who are able to use their wisdom to help their subjects maintain a psychological balance in their souls that approximates, if it does not fully embody, the virtues of moderation and justice and so enables them to enjoy a unified rather than a divided soul.
