page 114 note 1 He allowed himself to be worshipped with Roma or with the Lares; in Cilicia he is joined with Poseidon, C.I.G. 4443. An instance of an altar erected in private devotion is perhaps C.I.L. IX. 1556 (Vedius Pollio).

page 115 note 4 L. Vitellius was associated with Claudius in censorship and consulship, and acted as viceroy when the Emperor was in Britain: Suet. Vitell. 2. This passage, and also Tacitus, Ann. XI. 2, 3, XI. 33, 34, XII. 5, 6, and Suet. Vitell. 2.5, 3, will give some idea of his influence. He had the honour of receiving, after death, a statue inscribed Pietatis Immobilis Erga Principem, and was branded by Tacitus as Exemplar adulatorii dedecoris.’

page 115 note 5 I have not cared to carry this note beyond Claudius, but it may be noticed that after the Pisonian conspiracy a senator proposed a temple to ‘ divus Nero’ (Tac. Ann. XV. 74): cf. th allusion to Nero as Iuppiter liberator on rare Neronian coin (J.R.S. X., p. 38), and the gibe of the dying Thrasea Paetus at that deity (Tac. Ann. XVI. 35).
