Cornelius Tacitus, Roman Historian: Tacitus wrote-Histories-(covering the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus, A.D. 14-to the death of Domitian A.D. 96)-and-Annals-(history of the Julian emperors from Tiberius to Nero), and which include emperors of Rome from Tiberius to Nero. He lauds the ideals of the Roman Republic and provides insight into many of the Roman emperors. Tacitus appears to have held the offices of quaestor in 79, praetor in 88, and consul in 97. He is believed to have been proconsul, or governor, of the Roman provinces in Asia, probably in 112-13. The last years of his life were devoted chiefly to the composition of his historical works, of which less than half are extant.
