    Torture or reward can overcome everything. Caius Sosius reduced the Jews to subjection. Some even the companies gave up in proof of their loyalty. During Nero's reign there had been a widespread diffusion of literary works in favor of this suicidal exitus illustrium virorum "end of the illustrious men".

    He holds the strict monogamy and chastity of Tacitus. book marriage customs worthy of the highest praise, in contrast to what he saw as the vice and immorality rampant in Roman society of his day chapter 18and he admires their open hospitality, their simplicity, and their bravery in Tacitus. book. Augendae tamen multitudini consulitur; nam et necare quemquam ex agnatis nefas, animosque proelio aut suppliciis peremptorum aeternos putant: hinc generandi amor et moriendi contemptus. In the third place, he had named the chief men of the State, most of whom he hated, simply out of ostentation and to win credit with posterity. That the leading spirits were Subrius Flavus, tribune of a praetorian cohort, and Sulpicius Asper, a centurion, was proved by the fearlessness of their death. He had the guard under arms, with all the other adjuncts of a court; soldiers attended him to the forum; soldiers went with him to the Senate House.

    To this Tiridates advanced, and having slain the customary victims, he removed the crown from his Tacitus. book, and set it at the foot of the statue; whereupon all felt a deep thrill of emotion, rendered the more intense by the sight Tacitus. book yet lingered before their eyes, of the slaughter or siege of Roman armies. Only lately, he had besieged Tigranes; afterwards, he let Paetus and his legions depart in safety when he could have destroyed them. For what have you not dared, what have you not profaned during these days? Meantime, while the Senate stooped to the most abject supplication, Tiberius happened to say that although he was not equal to the whole burden of the State, yet he would undertake the charge of whatever part of it might be intrusted to him. The scene was a contrast to all civil wars which have ever occurred.

Only the Jew might approach the gates; all but priests were forbidden to pass the threshold. Tacitus. book, military service itself is burdensome and unprofitable; ten as a day is the value set on life and limb; out of this, clothing, Tacitus.

They all rushed to the spot, broke open the guardhouse, unbound the prisoners, and were in a moment fraternising with deserters and men convicted on capital charges. This was the only style of adulation which yet remained.

Tacitus. book last, when there Tacitus. book others ready to be abettors of a mutiny, he asked, in the tone of a demagogue, why, like slaves, they submitted to a few centurions and still fewer tribunes. Approach to history[ edit ] Tacitus's historical style owes some debt to Sallust.

If a soldier survives so many risks, he is still dragged into remote regions where, under the name of lands, he receives soaking swamps or mountainous wastes. Gavius Silvanus, tribune of a praetorian cohort, was ordered to report this to Seneca and to ask him whether he acknowledged what Natalis said and his own answer.

Still, he did not thereby soften the emperor's resentment, for he had long been detested from an impression that, as he had married Vipsania, daughter of Marcus Agrippa, who had once been the wife of Tiberius, he aspired to be more than a citizen, and kept up the arrogant tone of his father, Asinius Pollio.

Which was he to prefer, without the fear that those whom he slighted would be infuriated by the affront? The standards were then to be advanced, so that thus at least the cohorts might be distinguished.

As soon as Sallustius Crispus who shared the secret he had, in fact, sent the written order to the tribune knew this, fearing that the charge would be shifted on himself, and that his peril would be the same whether he uttered fiction or truth, he advised Livia not to divulge the secrets of her house or the counsels of friends, or any services performed by the soldiers, nor to let Tiberius weaken the strength of imperial power by referring everything to the Senate, for "the condition," he said, "of holding empire is that an account cannot be balanced unless it be rendered to one person.

How few were left who had seen the republic! While Corbulo complained that his efforts had been fruitless and that the war might have been ended with the flight of the Parthians, Paetus replied that for neither of them was anything lost, and urged that they should reverse the eagles, and with their united forces invade Armenia, much weakened, as it was, by the departure of Vologeses.
