03.06.24 A.D. 19 Jews Rioted in Rome  

According to Josephus, the Jews in Rome enjoyed peace and had exceptional privileges with the exception of a few years (beginning in A.D. 19) when some 4,000 were sent to Sardinia to fight the Banditti. Rarely was there any conflict between Jews and the Romans outside of the Holy Land in the early first century.  In essence, during the days of Emperors Tiberius and Augustus, Jews in the Diaspora enjoyed peace, prosperity, and freedom of religion throughout the empire.[1]
