    More Information:

    Velleius Paterculus lived under Augustus and Tiberius and served as a calvary officer under Tiberius in Germany. "He was the author of a compendious history of Rome from the earliest times to his own days in two books, the first of which, in its extant form, is incomplete. The history shows partiality for the Caesars and enthusiasm, reaching adulation, in particular for Tiberius..."[OCCL]. Baudrier VII,225. Bib. Belgica III,1121. Schweiger II, 1126.
