Next chapter

Previous chapter
So far from being actuated by any wish or hope of increasing or extending the empire, he [Note 1] even thought of withdrawing the army from Britain and changed his purpose only because he was ashamed to seem to belittle the glory of his father [That is, his adoptive father Claudius]. He increased the provinces only by the realm of Pontus, when it was given up by Polemon, and that of Cottius in the Alps on the latter's death.

Note 1: he = Nero

Event: Further problems in Britain
