Camerinus, was proconsul of Africa together with Pomponius Silvanus, and on their return to Rome in A. D. 59, they were both accused on account of their extortions in their province, but were acquitted by the emperor Nero. (Tac. Ann. 13.52
.) Soon afterwards, however, Nero put Camerinus and his son to death, according to Dio Cassius (63.18), for no other reason but because they ventured to make use of the surname Pythicus, which was hereditary in their family, and which Nero claimed as an exclusive prerogative for himself.
It appears from Pliny (Plin. Ep. 5.3
), that they were accused by M. Regulus.
