"Lives of the Twelve Caesars"
Published on Wednesday, March 30, 2011 - 11:14am
This book is an entertaining and often salacious account of the first 12 emperors of the Roman Empire.
A secretary to Hadrian (117 - 138 C.E.), Suetonius also had access to the imperial archives. If only half of what he describes is true, modern scandals pale in comparison to the bizarre activities of imperial Rome.
