Excerpt from Gai Suetoni Tranquilli De Vita Caesarum: Libri III-Vi; Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero

The Lives of the Caesars contained in this collection are of great interest to the student of Roman history, since they treat of the period covered by the Annals of Tacitus, by which they are so admirably illustrated and the gaps of which they serve to bridge. The Lives are, too, in special need of elucidation, partly because of their author's disregard of chronological sequence and partly because of their extreme conciseness. The Notes of this edition, there fore, have been made rather full, with a view to confirm, refute, or further illustrate the statements of Suetonius by citations from other authors, especially from Tacitus, Dio Cassius, and the latter's abridger, Xiphilin.

NO commentary on the Lives of this edition has, so far as I am aware, been published in any modern language. The old commentators, and the baumgarten-crusius-hase edition in particular, have been of assistance in preparing the Notes; but of necessity, in an edition of this kind, much of the work has been done independently. The text adopted is that of Roth with modifications.
