Nero: Rome fire not as bad as news reports claimed – Fact

Nero-Fiddling

A new translation of the Emperor Nero’s diary has revealed his suspicion about reporting of the great fire which took place while he was fiddling.

“Officials told me in a briefing 16 people had died. Over many months it went to 64 people. Then, like magic, “3000 people killed.” Sad. So much fake news.

“The Senate are LOSERS.   But even they admit I’m the best fiddler, absolutely the bestest.  Nobody fiddles like me.  Fact.  No, you can’t see my tax return.  Losers”
