Laying hens were treated orally with a single dose of aldrin (AD) 1 mg/kg body weight. Concentrations (μg/g) of AD or its epoxide (= dieldrin, DD) in the yolk of eggs laid for 21 days after AD treatment were determined by normalphase high-performance liquid chromatography. The limits of determination were 0.02 μg/g for AD and 0.03 μg/g for DD, respectively. After AD treatment, although the low levels of AD (mean 0.02–0.03 μg/g) were observed only during a three-day period (from 4th to 6th days), DD (mean 0.15 μg/g) was found already on the 2nd day, indicating that the epoxidation of AD to DD in the hen’s body is rapid. The highest level of DD (mean 0.40 μg/g) was detected on the 6th day, and then DD levels decreased slowly and were detected up to the 21st day. In this decreasing phase, the half-life of DD in the yolk was estimated to be 25.6 days with a 95% confidence interval from 22.7 to 29.4 days.

Suetonius describes the lives of Caesars according to categories such as antecedents, birth, career, achievements, morals, religion, appareance, and death. In my paper I examine the function of religion in The Deified Augustus of Suetonius. Firstly I list the places where phenomena concerning religion appear. Then I analyse the attitude of Augustus towards religions; e.g. he took dreams very seriously, and regarded certain auspices and omens as infallible. Suetonius treats the religious beliefs of Augustus long because he regards them as very important. Augustus wanted to enhance the sacred character of his principate, therefore he acquired membership in several priesthoods.
