Notes

Abstract: My topic is the emperor Nero and his portrayal by Suetonius, Dio, and Tacitus. I cover the following subjects: Nero's rise to power, his mother Agrippina, his early influences Seneca and Burrus, his performance interests, the opponents of his reign, and his fall. I conclude that while all three authors agree on Nero's status as a bad emperor and the major crimes of his reign, they differ in the way that they present these things. The details included in their accounts and the tone used when describing specific episodes reflect their individual interests and styles and vary widely. These discrepancies lead to very different understandings of Nero's primary vices, the cause of Nero's misbehavior, and the proper way to respond to his inappropriate actions.
