  Praetor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The first praetor specially so called was appointed in the year 356 BC, and he was chosen only from the Patricians, who had this new office created as a kind of indemnification to themselves for being compelled to share the consulship with the Plebeians.
In the year 246 BC another Praetor was appointed, whose business was to administer justice in matters in dispute between, or peregrini and Roman citizens; and accordingly he was called Praetor Peregrinus.
Thus two praetors were created in 227 BC, for the administration of Sicily and Sardinia, and two more were added when the two Spanish provinces were formed in 197 BC.

In Ukraine BC results into nearly 30% of tumour-related diseases and 16-18% mortality rate, therefore BC detection is believed to be a priority.
As BC incidence tends to grow in the majority of the developed countries, the disease turns from a purely medical problem into a social one.
BC diagnosis and treatment are performed in Ukraine at the specialised hospitals (oncolological dispancers) located in the regional centres only.

 Province (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
When the imperium was conferred upon two consuls at the beginning of the Republic, and upon a praetor in 367 BC, and finally upon a second praetor in 241 BC, it became necessary in practice to define their individual competence which was unlimited in theory.
Three periods may be distinguished in the history of the system of provincial administration: (1) from 227 BC to Sulla, (2) from Sulla to Augustus, and (3) the Empire.
In 27 BC, Augustus as commander-in-chief of the Roman army definitely assumed the administration of all provinces which required the presence of military forces and left the other provinces to the control of the senate.

Indeed, in 306 BC they were reinforced with the reciprocal recognition of a Roman sphere of influence over Italy and a Carthaginian one over Sicily.
The struggle between Rome and Carthage was to continue until the end of the century (264-201 BC) ending in two separate conflicts: Sicily was the scene of the first (264-241 BC) until it became a Roman province; and slightly later (238-227 BC) Sardinia and Corsica met the same fate.
The events of the first century BC in Italy are marked by a move from republican liberties to dictatorial regimes and a return to a democratic-type structure (rather similar to present-day presidential republics) with the advent of the principate of Augustus (27 BC-AD 14).

 Cleomenes III on Encyclopedia.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In his determined effort to restore the prestige of the city, he began (227 BC) a war against the Achaean League and was successful in many battles.
At home his reforms were revolutionary: the kingship was made the supreme power, the ephorate was abolished, and the citizenship was widely extended, apparently to decrease the danger of discontent and to ally the people with the king.
Cleomenes came to his downfall suddenly in 222 BC (or possibly 221 BC) when the Achaean League, allied with Antigonus III of Macedon, routed the Spartan army.

Having taken more than 12 years to complete, the statue appears to have stood for less than a century; an earthquake overturned it in 227–226 BC, and the remains were plundered in the Middle Ages, carried away to Edessa in Turkey.
The head of the statue may be reproduced on Rhodian Helios coins of the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.
