Description

Marcus Ambibulus (Ambivulus) was prefect, which meant he governed a district. Josephus, the historian of the place and time, did not note any events during his term of office, which probably means that he avoided trouble.

The ancient historian Josephus wrote the history of the Jews from the First Day to the First Revolt. Go read it, then we can talk.
