Moving Mail

We’ve been thinking about moving mail. Today, we put stamps on our letters, put those letters in a box, and trust the US Postal service to move the mail.

Did he use the cursus publicus – the public way made up of stations and letter carriers – that Roman officials used? Or did he have his own messengers who might bring back news from far-off towns?
