Aurelius Commodus

Aurelius Commodus, Antonini filius, Antoninus et ipse dictus, imperavit annos tredecim. Hic qualis futurus esset, in ipso primordio ostendit. Nam cum in supremis moneretur a parente, attritos iam barbaros ne permitteret vires recipere, responderat ab incolumi, quamvis paulatim, negotia perfici posse, a mortuo nihil. Saevior omnibus libidine atque avaritia, crudelitate, nulli fidus, magisque in eos atrox, quos amplissimis honoribus donisque ingentibus extulerat. In tantum depravatus, ut gladiatoriis armis saepissime in amphitheatro dimicaverit. Huic Marcia, generis libertini, forma tamen meretriciisque artibus pollens, cum animum eius penitus devinxisset, egresso e balneo veneni poculum obtulit. Ad extremum ab immisso validissimo palaestrita compressis faucibus exspiravit anno vitae tricesimo secundoque.
