The first day, Publius would have announced to the Romans that he would host a feast for the survivors (28:9). This began the feast of the gods (28:11-12). During the feast, Publius would have offered praise and thanksgiving to the gods for their help during the calamity (28:13-14).
During the feast, Publius would have also offered sacrifices to appease the gods’ anger at their actions (28:16-17). Again, the Romans believed that if they appeased the gods, they would forgive them for past transgressions (28:18-21).
Finally, Publius would have asked them what they wished for. He would have assured them of his help in resolving their grievances (28:23-25). He would also have offered some form of reparation for their problems (28:26-29).
Sometime after the feast, Publius would have asked the survivors to tell him more about their problems (28:22). This would have enabled the survivors to share their experiences with the Roman people more accurately.
Publius would have also offered the survivors a chance to make amends for past sins. He may have brought up the subject of infidelity (28:15). The Romans believed that vengeful gods might have punished them for sinful acts that were not yet atoned for.
The Consortium was established in 2018 to provide a forum for stakeholders to collaborate on the development of offshore wind energy technologies, including the design, testing, and deployment of offshore wind turbines. The consortium received a federal stimulus grant to support the development of offshore wind technology and supports the DOE's Office of Wind by stimulating the growth of the offshore wind industry in a sustainable way.
