Seal 1. 96 - 180 A.D. Rome Victorious.
"It may probably at once strike the reflective reader that if the chronology of Bossuet's scheme, extending as it does from Domitian's time to fall of the Roman empire in the 5th century, do in regard of the supposed Roman catastrophe abundantly better suit with historic fact than the German Neronic or Galbaic Pręterist Scheme, it is on the other hand quite as much at disadvantage in respect of the other, or Jewish catastrophe. For surely that catastrophe was effected in the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, above 20 years before Bossuet's Domitianic date of the Apocalypse: and all that past afterwards under Hadrian was a mere rider to the great catastrophe." (Bousset's Roman Praeterist Scheme)
