In an account of the great fire at Rome in A.D. 64, the great Roman historian Tacitus (circa 56-120 AD) wrote as follows about the rumor that Nero was responsible for its instigation: Slide 3: Therefore, to scotch the rumor, Nero substituted as culprits, and punished with the utmost refinements of cruelty, a class of men, loathed for their vices, whom the crowd styled Christians. Christus, from whom they got their name, had been executed by sentence of the procurator Pontius Pilate when Tiberius was emperor; and the pernicious superstition was checked for a short time, only to break out afresh, not only in Judaea, the home of the plague, but in Rome itself, where all the horrible and shameful things in the world collect and find a home. Slide 4: Tiberius was always indecisive Left Rome to stay at the Isle of Capri and left Sejanus in charge of Rome under his authority Sejanus tried to usurp the throne by slowly getting rid of possible heirs Sejanus was later arrested—the account is as following from a reliable source on Roman history: Slide 5: Sejanus' power reached its high-point when he held consular office in the same year as Tiberius (AD 31). But then he brought about his own downfall by plotting the elimination of nineteen year-old Gaius.The key moment was the arrival of a letter sent to the emperor by his sister-in-law Antonia warning him of Sejanus. Sejanus Caligula Slide 6: Tiberius might have retired to his island for his dislike of politics and intrigues. But when he saw the necessity he could still ruthlessly exercise power. Command of the praetorian guard was secretly transferred to one of Tiberius' friends, Naevius Cordus Sertorius Macro, who on 18 October AD 31 had Sejanus arrested during a meeting of the senate. A letter by the emperor to the senate was then read out expressing Tiberius' suspicions. Sejanus was duly executed, his corpse dragged through the streets and thrown into the Tiber. His family and many of his supporters suffered similar fates.
