  • M. Winterbottom

Extract

Some thought he marked a turning-point in Roman oratory (Tac. Dial. 19). A vivid picture is painted by the elder Seneca (Controv. 3 pref.). He was exiled on a charge of *maiestas under Augustus and his books were burned (Tac. Ann. 1. 72, 4. 21). He eventually died in Seriphos, apparently around ce 35.
