250 A.D.: Cyprian Plague

It is named after the first known victim, the Christian bishop of Carthage.
Possibly starting in Ethiopia, it passed through Northern Africa, into Rome, then onto Egypt and northward. City dwellers fled to the country to escape infection but instead spread the disease further.
Symptoms: diarrhea, vomiting, throat ulcers, fever and gangrenous hands and feet.
