C. Suetonius Tranquillus, Caligula (ed. Alexander Thomson), chapter 17 (search)
He held the consulship four times: the first,A. U. C. 790. from the calends [the first] of July for two months; the second,A.U.C. 791 from the calends of January for thirty days; the third,A.U.C. 793 until the ides [the 13th] of January; and the fourth,A.U.C. 794 until the seventh of the same ides [7th January]. Of these, the two last he held successively. The third he assumed by his sole authority at Lyons; not, as some are of opinion, from arrogance or neglect of rules; but because, at that distance, it was impossible for him to know that his colleague had died a little before the beginning of the new year. He twice distributed to the people a bounty of three hundred sesterces a man, and as often gave a splendid feast to the senate and the equestrian order, with their wives and children. In the latter, he presented to the men forensic garments, and to the women and children purple scarfs. To make a perpetual addition to the public joy for ever, he added to the SaturnaliaThe Saturna

He likewise exhibited public diversions in Sicily, Grecian games at Syracuse, and Attic plays at Lyons in Gaul: besides a contest for pre-eminence in the Grecian and Roman eloquence; in which we are told that such as were baffled bestowed rewards upon the best performers, and were obliged to compose speeches in their praise: but that those who performed the worst were forced to blot out what they had written with a sponge or their tongue, unless they preferred to be beaten with a rod, or plunged over head and ears into the nearest river.
C. Suetonius Tranquillus, Divus Claudius (ed. Alexander Thomson), chapter 2 (search)
Claudius was born at Lyons, in the consulship of Julius Antonius and Fabius Africanus, upon the first of August,A.U.C. 744 the very day upon which an altar was first dedicated there to Augustus. He was named Tiberius Claudius Drusus, but soon afterwards, upon the adoption of his elder brother into the Julian family, he assumed the cognomen of Germanicus. He was left an infant by his father, and during almost the whole of his minority, and for some time after he attained the age of manhood, was afflicted with a variety of obstinate disorders, insomuch that his mind and body being greatly impaired, he was, even after his arrival at years of maturity, never thought sufficiently qualified for any public or private employment. He was, therefore, during a long time, and even after the expiration of his minority, under the direction of a pedagogue, who, he complains in a certain memoir, " was a barbarous wretch, and formerly superintendent of the mule-drivers, who was selected for his gover
