In this dissertation for the University of Michigan, Dennison links the text of Suetonius, a historian whose work forms the basis for our knowledge of the Roman emperors from Julius Caesar to Domitian, to surviving epigraphical texts. The comparison between the two offers insight into Suetonius' use of primary source documents and reveals information lost in the historian's retelling of events. This piece includes texts and commentaries and is an invaluable article for any study of Suetonius, particularly in a classroom setting. Students and scholars alike will find the piece a handy tool for evaluating Suetonius and the world he portrays in his monographs.
