Tacitus Quote About the Death of the Roman Emperor Nero

An emperor could be made elsewhere than at Rome

By

"Although Nero's death had at first been welcomed with outbursts of joy, it roused varying emotions, not only in the city among the senators and people and the city soldiery, but also among all the legions and the generals; for the secret of empire was now disclosed, that an emperor could be made elsewhere than at Rome."
