Quis erat Nero ? : how did he look like #2 by Blue-Aqua-san95 Quis erat Nero ? : how did he look like #2 by Blue-Aqua-san95
Statura fuit prope iusta, corpore maculoso et fetido ...; ... comam semper in gradus formatam ...; ...indutus ligato circum collum sudario prodierit in publicum sine cinctu et discalciatus.
(extracts from Suetonius: Nero 51,1)
----------------------------------------------------------------
Nero was of average height, covered with spots and malodorous... ; ... his hair was always arranged in curls...; ...in public he often wore a housecoat with a handkerchief around his neck, without a belt and sturdy shoes.
((Translation: M.Giebel, C.Suetinius Tranquillus. Nero. Lateinisch/Deutsch (Stuttgart 2001); penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E… ))
