Sacrovir, Julius (d. 21 c. e.) King of the Gallic Aedui In 21 C. E. Sacrovir led an ineffective revolt against ROME, finding support only from within the Aedui and elements of the Treveri. Joined by Julius Florus, a Romanized Gaul, Sacrovir had around 40,000 followers when attacked by Gaius Silius and Visellius Varro, the legates of Germania Superior and inferior. Defeated in battle, Sacrovir fled and later killed himself.

Sadducees One of the leading Jewish religious movements, from the Hasmonaean Revolt until the fall of the Great temple of Jerusalem (c. 166 B. C.E.-70 c. E.). The Sadducees probably emerged as a legitimate element of JUDAISM after the Hasmonaean uprising. They believed in the sanctity of the pentateuch, that only those laws actually written down were to be followed. Any others, especially oral traditional laws, were not valid. Further, the Sadducees held that fate had no place in mortal affairs and that humanity decided its own course.

These views put them in direct opposition to the PHARISEES, who preached oral law and stressed the role of fate. Their fight with the pharisees, bitter and violent at times, drew in as well the priest-kings of the Hasmon-aeans, who derived their power from oral tradition. consequently, the Sadducees enjoyed little political influence and even less popular appeal. Through an agreement with the pharisees they were permitted to serve as priests in the Great Temple, eventually having several of their number named high priest, most notably caiaphas, presider over the interview of Jesus. The Temple thus served as their main source of power. After its destruction in 70 c. E., the Sadducees could not survive the resulting collapse of structured Judaism, dying out over the next centuries.

Salacia Minor and obscure Roman deity affiliated with NEPTUNE, perhaps as his wife or consort. Salacia was probably the goddess of springing water (salire means
