Pimp my Pachyderm

I’ve been reading Colin Wells’ excellent book entitled, “The Roman Empire.” In it, he talks about one of Octavian’s generals, Lucius Cornificius, arriving at the homes of his friends for dinner on the back of an Elephant.  Now that is style.

Dr. Wells doesn’t give a source for this, but I found it in Book 49 of Cassius Dio’s “Roman History”, if you want to read about it for yourself.
