Apollonius of Tyana
Vespasian (left) places his hand on the shoulder of his son Domitian. It was the assassination of Domitian that Apollonius saw in his clairvoyant vision in the marketplace of Ephesus, supposedly just the moment it occurred. The Roman emperor had Apollonius brought before him on charges of sorcery but somehow the philosopher escaped. Christians were persecuted by Domitian, who had himself declared a god. Eusebius wrote: "He was the second that raised a persecution against us." Along with Nero and false prophets like Apollonius and Simon Magus, Domitian was considered the antichrist .

    Right, Apollonius' vision at Ephesus
