Sections 158-200 of the translation: Josephus reports how the Senate try to take control of the situation, with a long speech from the consul SentiusSaturninus hailing the end of the ‘tyranny of the Caesars’ and the resumption of a free republic. Meanwhile, the Praetorian Guard, who have nothing to gain from a republic, kidnap Claudius with the intention of making him emperor. The conspirators send one of their number to kill Gaius’ widow Caesonia and her little daughter.
