  THE MYSTERY READER reviews: The Course of Honor by Lindsey Davis
Caenis was born a slave in the palace, but when she was a child, her intelligence was recognized, and she has been well educated so that she can work as a scribe.
It is not only Vespasian who has embarked on the course of honor but Caenis, too, who, in spite of her lower rank, is a person of rare nobility of character while most of the nobility were of the lowest rank of morality.
Caenis and Vespasian aren't cut from the usual he's-handsome-she's-beautiful hero and heroine mold that romance readers are familiar with.

 Lindsey Davis: The Course of Honour
I had given my all to Antonia Caenis, with whom I closely identified: a single woman in a society geared to families, an intelligent woman working in a hostile male environment, a sceptical woman viewing the idiocies of politics through helping to administer them.
Caenis herself is cleverly drawn, as a spirited, original, strikingly down-to-earth observer of a corrupt and corrupting world; and her whole story … is as hard to put down as any of Davis's novels - Mary Beard, The Independent
Caenis is deeply intelligent, self-contained, and no-nonsense; her love for Vespasian (and his for her) is developed in a way that makes sense to both the head and the heart.

Caenis is the dominant mayfly taxon found in the Grand R. at the Laurel Creek outlet in Bridgeport.
Caenis naiads can be distinguished from other families of mayflies by their opercular gills on abdominal segment 2; these gills are relatively large and rather square (quadrate) in shape, but they are not fused along the midline.
In northern latitudes, the life cycle of Caenis generally takes a year to complete, with adults emerging in mid-to-late June; individual adults are truly ephemeral, living for only a few hours.

 The Course of Honour by Lindsey Davis (FalcoPhiles)
This novel is a departure from Falco, and concentrates on the life of Antonia Caenis, and her love-affair with Vespasian.
It opens with Caenis as a slave in the Imperial household during the reign of Tiberius, and Vespasian a young man, not even wearing a senatorial toga.
Eventually Caenis is freed by Antonia, and raises enough money to live independently, and in fact frequently lends money to the relatively impoverished Vespasian as he climbs the cursus honorum.

One day the god said he would give Caenis anything she wanted in token of his affection.
Although this was the last thing Poseidon had expected or wished to hear, he obliged, and Caenis became Caeneus.
Under her - or rather his - new name, Caeneus became a great warrior and got so carried away with his prowess that he walked into the middle of town one day and propped up his spear in the marketplace.

The freedwoman Caenis was lover and mistress to the man who became the Roman Emperor Vespasian, a strong and good leader who followed the wicked excesses of Nero.
The story is told from Caenis' point of view, beginning with her life as a slave and work as scribe and secretary for Antonia, grandmother of Caligula and Claudius.
Most moderns would think that slavery was an altogether wreched existence, but Caenis, the favorite of one of the Roman royals, not only has a dignified, comfortable life, but buys her own freedom at a relatively young age.

 It's caenis time - Fly Fishing Forums
When the fish are on the spent caenis, if you watch them you will soon spot the direction and speed the fish are travelling at, once you have done that it is simply a case of putting your fly where the fish will be next.
Your casting has to be accurate though, the fish are so close to the surface that they only have a small window and if your fly is not in that window then the fish won’t see it..
For a caenis nymph use a small hare's ear(18/20) but with a dark thorax, I usually use dyed fl mole for the thorax on mine.

Poseidon and Caenis, woodcut illustration of Ovid by Virgil Solis, 1563
Caenis, the daughter of Elatus (a Lapith chieftain), was raped by Poseidon, who then fulfilled her request to be changed into a man so that she could never be raped again; he also made Caenis invulnerable to weaponry.

A two-year study of the mayfly fauna and some of the physicochemical parameters of the Opa stream-reservoir revealed that there are two mayfly genera inhabiting it, Cloeon and Caenis.
It was observed that although both genera occurred at all the sampling stations, their numbers were reduced in the stream below the dam due to increased water current velocity.
A species-specific approach is suggested for studies on the strategies that enable mayfly species maintain their populations in stressed and unstable aquatic ecosystems.

We know that Caenis started life as a slave, and was employed as a secretary (so she was also educated) in the service of Antonia the daughter of Marc Antony and mother of Emperor Claudius.
Her [Caenis] mistress Antonia, the mother of Claudius, had once employed her as secretary in writing a secret letter to Tiberius about Sejanus and had immediately ordered the message to be erased, in order that no trace of it might be left.
This gave her [Caenis] the greatest influence and she amassed untold wealth, so that it was even thought that he [Vespasian] made money through Caenis herself as his intermediary.
