      Caesar said that one was safer being Herod's pig than Herod's son.
      Josephus records in Antiquities of the Jews, XVI, ix 3; Book 16, section 286
      that Augustus was furious with Herod in 8 BCE and threatened to treat him no
      longer as a friend (Client), but as a subject (subject to taxes). Josephus
      stated that Augustus wrote to Herod. The sum of his epistle was this, that
      whereas of old he had used him as his friend, he should now use him as his
      subject.
