Sections 17-69 of the translation: Josephus identifies three conspiracies against Gaius, and focuses on that of Cassius Chaerea, a Praetorian Guard officer used by Gaius to torture suspects. Sickened by what he has to do, Chaerea seeks the support of Clemens, the Praetorian Prefect, and enlists the aid of Sabinus, a fellow officer, and ‘Minucianus’, a senior senator (real name AnniusVinicianus), in an attempt to liberate Rome from Gaius’ tyranny.

Keywords:   Cassius Chaerea, Sabinus, Praetorian Prefect, AnniusVinicianus
