You too, Galba, will some day have a taste of empire.
Ann Book VI Chapter 20: Gaius Caesar
By Tiberius

The soldiery of the capital, who were imbued with the spirit of an old allegiance to the Caesars, and who had been led to desert Nero by intrigues and influences from without rather than by their own feelings, were inclined for change, when they found that the donative promised in Galba's name was withheld,

To all this was added Galba's own expression, "I choose my soldiers, I do not buy them," noble words for the common-wealth, but fraught with peril for himself.

Titus Vinius and Cornelius Laco, one the most worthless, the other the most spiritless of mankind, were ruining the weak old Emperor,

His entry into the capital, made after the slaughter of thousands of unarmed soldiers, was most ill-omened, and was terrible even to the executioners.
His Book I Chapter 5: Revolt of Nymphidius Sabinus

The feebleness of Galba was notorious.

Umbricius announced to him that the entrails had a sinister aspect, that treachery threatened him, that he had an enemy at home.
His Book I Chapter 27: Revolt of Otho. The next step
By Umbricius

A shudder comes over my soul, whenever I call to mind that ghastly entry, Galba's solitary victory, when, before the eyes of the capital he gave orders to decimate the prisoners, the suppliants, whom he had admitted to surrender. These were the auspices with which he entered the city. What is the glory that he has brought to the throne? None but that he has murdered Obultronius Sabinus and Cornelius Marcellus in Spain, Betuus Chilo in Gaul, Fonteius Capito in Germany, Clodius Macer in Africa, Cingonius on the high road, Turpilianus in the city, Nymphidius in the camp. What province, what camp in the world, but is stained with blood and foul with crime, or, as he expresses it himself, purified and chastened? For what others call crimes he calls reforms, and, by similar misnomers, he speaks of strictness instead of barbarity, of economy instead of avarice, while the cruelties and affronts inflicted upon you he calls discipline.

By Otho

About the actual murderer nothing is clearly known. Some have recorded the name of Terentius, an enrolled pensioner, others that of Lecanius; but it is the current report that one Camurius, a soldier of the 15th legion, completely severed his throat by treading his sword down upon it. The rest of the soldiers foully mutilated his arms and legs, for his breast was protected, and in their savage ferocity inflicted many wounds even on the headless trunk.

But the vulgar, ever eager to invent, had spread the report that he was sent for to be adopted. The advanced years and childless condition of the Emperor furnished matter for such gossip, and the country never can refrain from naming many persons until one be chosen.
His Book II Chapter 1: Titus returns

He showed marked respect to Livia Augusta, to whose favor he owed great influence during her lifetime and by whose last will he almost became a rich man; for he had the largest bequest among her legatees, one of fifty million sesterces. But because the sum was designated in figures and not written out in words, Tiberius, who was her heir, reduced the bequest to five hundred thousand, and Galba never received even that amount.
Stn Galba, Chapter 5: Galba as husband and heir

On another occasion when he was holding court and the question of the ownership of a beast of burden was laid before him, as the evidence on both sides was slight and the witnesses unreliable, so that it was difficult to get at the truth, he ruled that the beast should be led with its head muffled up to the pool where it was usually watered, that it should then be unmuffled, and should belong to the man to whom it returned of its own accord after drinking.
Stn Galba, Chapter 7: His career

His double reputation for cruelty and avarice had gone before him;

It was thought too that he intended to limit the offices open to senators and equites to a period of two years, and to give them only to such as did not wish them and declined them.
Stn Galba, Chapter 15: Financial misbehaviour

He had all the grants of Nero revoked, allowing only a tenth part to be retained; and he exacted repayment with the help of fifty Roman equites, stipulating that even if the actors and athletes had sold anything that had formerly been given them, it should be taken away from the purchasers, in case the recipient had spent the money and could not repay it.
Stn Galba, Chapter 15: Financial misbehaviour

He was more inclined to unnatural desire, and in gratifying it preferred full-grown, strong men.
Stn Galba, Chapter 22: His habits

He easily held the first place among the emperor's friends because of the similarity of their characters; but according to some, also through immoral relations.
Stn Otho, Chapter 2: His first years

Why, do you ask, in feigned honor does Otho in banishment languish? With his own wedded wife he had begun an intrigue.
Stn Otho, Chapter 3: Otho and Nero

For he flatly declared that he could not keep on his feet unless he became emperor, and that it made no difference whether he fell at the hands of the enemy in battle or at those of his creditors in the Forum.
Stn Otho, Chapter 4: Otho and Galba

After the defeat, Otho at once resolved to take his own life, rather from a feeling of shame, as many have thought with good reason, and an unwillingness to persist in a struggle for imperial power at the expense of such danger to life and property, than from any despair of success or distrust of his troops;

He had Galba's property exposed to sale, which when Galba heard of he sequestered all that was Nero's in Spain, and found far readier bidders.

As soon as this wrinkled, bald-headed man should be seen publicly at Rome, they would think it an utter disgrace ever to have had such a Caesar.
