Rome wasn't burned in a day, you know. Wait, maybe it was.
100 Things: #20
This one came from researching which horse was which in the image faecat posted in a comment to the last entry.

Pestilence was not one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  The Horsemen were, in order of appearance:

Conquest - Rides the white horse, holds a bow
War - Rides the red horse, holds a sword
Famine - Rides a black horse, holds scales
Death - Rides the pale horse, holds nothing, hell follows him

It's also worth pointing out two other interesting points:
1.) Death is the only horseman explicitly given a name.  The rest are named based on their description.
2.) Famine is the only one whose appearance comes with a vocal pronouncement.  Specifically, "A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine."

(I use the King James version for my quotes.  I think it's prettier.)
