“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Publius Cornelius Tacitus
PubliusCornelius Tacitus was a senator and a historian of the Roman Empire. The surviving portions of his two major works—the Annals and the Histories—examine the reigns of the Roman Emperors Tiberius, Claudius, Nero and those that reigned in the Year of the Four Emperors. These two works span the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus in 14 AD to the death of emperor Domitian in 96 AD. There are significant lacunae in the surviving texts.
Other works by Tacitus discuss oratory , Germania , and biographical notes about his father-in-law Agricola, primarily during his campaign in Britannia .
