Book V Chapter 5: The complot against Agrippina. Tiberius[AD 29]
Return to index
Upon this the emperor, [Note 1] after repeating his invectives against his grandson [Note 2] and his daughter-in-law [Note 3] and reprimanding the populace in an edict complained to the Senate that by the trick of one senator the imperial dignity had been publicly flouted, and he insisted that, after all, the whole matter should be left to his exclusive decision. Without further deliberation, they proceeded, not indeed to pronounce the final sentence (for this was forbidden), but to declare that they were prepared for vengeance, and were restrained only by the strong hand of the sovereign. |
