fasces , he crossed to Achaia and joined Marcus Antonius. With him he shortly returned to Rome, on the conclusion of a general peace, and gave up to Augustus at his request his wife Livia Drusilla, who was pregnant at the time and had already borne him a son. Not long afterward he died, survived by both his sons, Tiberius Nero and Drusus Nero. V. Some have supposed that Tiberius was born at Fundi, on no better evidence than that his maternal grandmother was a native of that place, and that later a statue of Good Fortune was set up there by decree of the Senate. But according to the most numerous and trustworthy authorities, he was born at Rome, on the Palatine, the sixteenth day before the Kalends of December, in the consulship of Marcus Aemilius Lepidus and Lucius Munatius Plancus (the former for the second time) while the war of Philippi was going on [November 16, 42 B.C.]. In fact it is so recorded both in the calendar and in the public gazette. Yet in spite of this some write that he was born in the preceding year, that of Hirtius and Pansa, and others in the following year, in the consulate of Servilius Isauricus and Lucius Antonius. VII. The principal events of his youth and later life, from the assumption of the gown of manhood to the beginning of his reign, were these. He gave a gladiatorial show in memory of his father, and a second in honor of his grandfather Drusus, at different times and in different places, the former in the Forum and the latter in the amphitheatre, inducing some retired gladiators to appear with the rest by the payment of a hundred thousand sesterces to each. He also gave stage-plays, but without being present in person. All these were on a grand scale, at the expense of his mother and his stepfather.

Being sent by Thermus to Bithynia, to fetch a fleet, he dawdled so long at the court of Nicomedes that he was suspected of improper relations with the king; and he lent color to this scandal by going back to Bithynia a few days after his return, with the alleged purpose of collecting a debt for a freedman, one of his dependents. During the rest of the campaign he enjoyed a better reputation, and at the storming of Mytilene [80 BC] Thermus awarded him the civic crown [a chaplet of oak leaves, given for saving the life of a fellow-citizen, the highest military award of the Roman state].

Executive summary: De Vita Caesarum Roman historian, lived during the end of the 1st and the first half of the 2nd century AD. He was the contemporary of Tacitus and the younger Pliny, and his literary work seems to have been chiefly done in the reigns of Trajan and Hadrian (AD 98-138). His father was military tribune in the XIIIth legion, and he himself began life as a teacher of rhetoric and an advocate. To us he is known as the biographer of the twelve Caesars (including Julius Caesar ) down to Domitian . The lives are valuable as covering a good deal of ground where we are without the guidance of Tacitus. As Suetonius was the emperor Hadrian's private secretary ( magister epistolarum The Lives of the Caesars has always been a popular work. It is rather a chronicle than a history. It gives no picture of the society of the time, no hints as to the general character and tendencies of the period. It is the emperor who is always before us, and yet the portrait is drawn without any real historical judgment or insight. It is the personal anecdotes, several of which are very amusing, that give the lives their chief interest; but the author panders rather too much to a taste for scandal and gossip. Nonetheless he throws considerable light on an important period, and next to Tacitus and Dio Cassius is the chief (sometimes the only) authority. The language is clear and simple. The work was continued by Marius Maximus (3rd century), who wrote a history of the emperors from Nerva to

Emblematic Scenes in Suetonius' Vitellius
John W. Burke (Kent State University)
... religatis post terga manibus, iniecto ceruicibus laqueo, ueste discissa seminudus in forum tractus est inter magna rerum uerborumque ludibria per totum uiae Sacrae spatium, reducto coma capite, ceu noxii solent, atque etiam mento mucrone gladii subrecto, ut uisendam praeberet faciem neue summitteret; quibusdam stercore et caeno incessentibus, aliis incendiarium et patinarium uociferantibus, parte uulgi etiam corporis uitia exprobrante; erat enim in eo enormis proceritas, facies rubida plerumque ex uinulentia, uenter obesus, alterum femur subdebile impulsu olim quadrigae, cum auriganti Gaio ministratorem exhiberet. tandem apud Gemonias minutissimis ictibus excarnificatus atque confectus est et inde unco tractus in Tiberim. ( Vit Suetonius' biography of Vitellius, a brief, but systematic, attack on that emperor's character and principate, culminates in the lurid scene quoted above, in which Vitellius is executed. Why should Suetonius have represented Vitellius, who reigned for so short a time, in such harshly negative terms? Partly, no doubt, because the basic tradition about Vitellius was established during the era of the Flavians, by whom, of course, he had been overthrown. The ancient source who most nearly approaches the almost uniformly negative picture provided by Suetonius is Flavius Josephus, and, at least in his case, for obvious reasons. But while the portrait offered by our other principal sources, Tacitus and Dio, is indeed decidedly unflattering and hostile, being largely based upon the same source-material as Suetonius', it is not without some attempt at equity (e.g. Tac.

Suetonius (?)
Suetonius   Suetonius was the Roman governor of Britain who defeated Boudicca's rebellion. Little is known of Gaius Suetonius Paulinus's early life. The earliest record of his career dates from 42 AD, during the reign of the Emperor Claudius, when he suppressed a revolt in Mauretania (north Africa) and became the first Roman to cross the Atlas mountains. In 58 AD, he was appointed governor of Britain, by which time the area south east of a line between the Wash and the Severn estuary was under Roman domination. Beyond that, the situation was more unstable. Suetonius engaged in war against the Ordovices in Wales, and was attacking the Druids in Anglesey at the start of the campaign season of 61 AD. Here he was victorious, but, far to the south east, in the rich, settled region around the capital, Camulodunum (Colchester), rebellion erupted. The uprising endangered not only the province but also Paulinus's career.

But apart from fragments of his Illustrious Writers , which include short biographies of Virgil, Horace, and Lucan, the only extant book is The Twelve Caesars , the most fascinating and richest of all Latin histories. Suetonius was fortunate in having ready access to the Imperial and Senatorial archives and to a great body of contemporary memoirs and public documents, and in having himself lived nearly thirty years under the Caesars. Much of his information about Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero comes from eye-witnesses of the events described. Apparently he took care to check facts wherever possible, and often quotes conflicting evidence without bias, which was not the habit of Tacitus or other later historians. If his credulousness about omens and prodigies is discounted, he seems trustworthy enough, his only prejudice being in favour of firm mild rule, with a regard for the human decencies. As the nineteenth-century Cambridge historian George Long wrote: His language is very brief and precise, sometimes obscure, without any affectation or ornament. He certainly tells a prodigious number of scandalous anecdotes about the Caesars, but there was plenty to tell about them; and if he did not choose to suppress those anecdotes which he believed to be true, that is no imputation on his veracity. As a great collection of facts of all kinds, his work on the Caesars is invaluable...
