Nero, before he had learned to fear the most eminent of the Romans, had appointed Galba to a command in Spain.
They all answered with one voice that they looked upon Galba as their emperor.
The senator Galba was rich, and was said by the astrologers to have an imperial nativity.
As some of them drew their swords, Galba ordered his cavalry to charge them.
The strict Galba faction wanted the dead man's body transported to the Travnik district.
Galba looked at him, and said, “Who ordered you to kill him?”
Galba, however, was only one of a group of would-be emperors.
Galba before leaving the palace had put on a light, quilted tunic.
The soldiers overthrew and tore down the images of Galba, swore fealty to the Senate and people of Rome, and then dispersed.
Patrobius was a freedman of Nero who had been punished by Galba.
