      The entrance hall was large enough to contain a huge, hundred-foot high, statue of the Emperor, and covered so much ground the triple colonnade was marked by milestones. He conferred triumphal regalia on men of quaestor rank as well as knights, and occasionally for other than military service. And whenever he floated down the Tiber to Ostiaor sailed over the Gulf of Baiaetemporary eating and drinking houses appeared at intervals along the banks and shores, with married women playing the role of barmaids, peddling their wares, and urging him on, from every side, to land. Line one was different each day, whether it was pizza, turkey, or meatloaf; it was whatever had been decided for the menu at the beginning of each month.

Killing his first wife His marriage to Octavia was not a happy one. He then had Lucusta supply him with a poisonous substance which he placed in a golden box, and crossed to the Servilian Gardens where he tried to persuade the Guards officers to flee with him, his most loyal freedmen having been sent ahead to Ostia to ready the fleet. I think it useful to give an account of several notable members of the family, to illustrate more clearly that Nero perpetuated their separate vices, as if these were inborn and bequeathed to him, while failing to exhibit their virtues.

      Now that it was much shorter, his hair had movement. There is another statue of Nero in front of the casino in Middelkerkewhere other statues of Belgian comic book characters can be seen. He was crowned with an Olympic wreath, and carried a Pythian wreath in his right hand, while the other wreaths he had won were borne before him inscribed with details of the various contests and competitors, the titles of the songs he had sung, and the subjects of the plays in which he had acted. He had killed his mother, first wife and, by some accounts, his second.
