Extract

Aemilius Scaurus, Mamercus, the last male member of the distinguished family of Aemilii Scauri, was a man of unsavoury character, but a distinguished orator and advocate (Sen. Controv. 10 pref. 2–3; Tac. Ann. 6. 29). Though disliked by *Tiberius, he was a suffect consul in ce 21, but did not govern a province. Twice prosecuted for *maiestas, in 32 and 34, on the second occasion he committed suicide.
