about

This Bybliotech anthology of Gaius Suetonius Tranquilus contains his most famous work - "The Lives of the Twelve Caesars", as well as the lesser known, "Lives of the Grammarians, Rhetoricians and Poets".

Written in the time of the Emperor Hadrian, "The Twelve Caesars" is a collective biography of the first leaders of the Roman Empire. It covers the lives of Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian.

The work tells the tale of each Caesar's life according to a set formula: the descriptions of appearance, omens, family history, quotes, and then a history are given in a consistent order for each Caesar. It also includes a great deal of seemingly scurrilous and intriguing information, that helps to paint a very colourful picture of the early Caesars.

This unexpurgated anthology has been compiled by www.Bybliotech.org and optimised for e-readers. It includes an active table of contents for ease of navigation, and features twelve unique illustrations as frontispieces for each individual book.
