En cuanto a los placeres del cuerpo, tenía un perfecto autocontrol; y de los de la mente, el elogio era el único del que era insaciable. Era muy inteligente para reconocer lo que era necesario hacer, incluso cuando aún era un asunto que pasaba desapercibido para los demás; y muy acertado para conjeturar a partir de la observación de los hechos lo que era probable que ocurriera. Era sumamente hábil para reunir, armar y dirigir un ejército, y muy famoso por infundir valor a sus soldados, llenarlos de esperanzas de éxito y disipar su temor en medio del peligro con su propia ausencia de miedo.

Como emperatriz, Julia fue célebre por su influencia política, social y filosófica, así como por recibir los títulos de mater castrorum —«madre de los campamentos militares»—. Después de que el mayor de sus hijos, Caracalla, comenzara a gobernar con su padre, fue co-emperatriz brevemente con la esposa de este, Fulvia Plautila, hasta que esta última cayó en desgracia. Tras la muerte de Severo en 211, Domna se convirtió en la primera emperatriz viuda en recibir los títulos de «Pia Felix Augusta», que quizá le otorgaban más poderes de los que nunca antes había gozado otra emperatriz madre romana

Quincia era una famosa bailarina gaditana. Acaso esperes muchachas gaditanas que en coro se pongan a entonar lascivos cantos de su país y enardecidas por los aplausos, exageren sus temblorosos movimientos de cadera, y las jóvenes esposas que, tendidas junto al marido, contemplan este espectáculo que sólo contado en su presencia debiera ya ruborizarlas. Son acicates de unos deseos languidecientes y estímulos apremiantes de nuestros ricos. Mayor es, sin embargo, esta voluptuosidad en el otro sexo, que se excita con más viveza y, pronto al placer que se mete por ojos y orejas, provoca la incontinencia.

Fatima al-Fihri, was an Arab woman who is credited with founding the al-Qarawiyyin Mosque in 857–859 AD in Fez, Morocco. She is also known as Umm al-Banīn ("Mother of the Children"). The al-Qarawiyyin Mosque subsequently developed into a teaching institution, which became the modern University of al-Qarawiyyin in 1963. Her story is told by Ibn Abi Zar' (d. between 1310 and 1320) in The Garden of Pages (Rawd al-Qirtas) as founder of the mosque. Since she was first mentioned many centuries after her death, her story has been hard to substantiate and some modern historians doubt she ever existed
