Any information on claim about 1st century Latin text?

6
A few recent web articles have mentioned a Latin text that records a miracle of Jesus. Supposedly the text is from a Marcus Velleius Paterculus from the first century. However, usable pictures of the text do not seem to be available and what is posted doesn't seem to fit the description. http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/newly-found-document-holds-eyewitness-account-of-jesus-performing-miracle/ Any updates on this? Thanks

    The site itself says that it makes up its stories. http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/disclaimer/

  2. Yes, it appears that was even a fraud, not just unconfirmed.

    Which is why the internet still needs a lot of double checking and triple checking.

  4. In the first century, there was no latin alphabet, nor latin language.

  5. world news daily is the internet answer to the "world weekly news" that used to run with stories like "batboy born" or "satan's skeleton found in Kansas"
