About Acta Diurna
Acta Diurna (which means Transactions of the Day), was the title of an official journal published each day at Rome from 59 BC to AD 330. It was the nearest approach in ancient times to the modern newspaper. It contained (1) court news, official decrees, etc; (2) births, marriages, deaths, etc.
Written on a white-washed board the Acta Diurna were posted in some prominent place. After removal they were stored with other public archives.
