Paconia'nus, Se'xtius

one of the bold and unscrupulous agents of Sejanus, was involved in the fall of his master, to the great joy of the senators, whose secrets he had frequently betrayed. He was sentenced to death in A. D. 32, unless he gave information; but in consequence of his doing so, the sentence was not carried into execution. He remained in prison till A. D. 35, in which year he was strangled on account of his having written some libellous verses against Tibersus while in confinement. (Tac. Ann. 6.3, 4, 39.)
