Mamercus Aemilius Scaurus
Mamercus Aemilius Scaurus (d. AD 34) was a Roman rhetorician, poet and senator, son of Marcus Aemilius Scaurus. He was a member of the senate in AD 14 at the time of Tiberius' accession to the throne.
He was accused of writing a tragedy, some of the verses of which reflected badly on Tiberius, but adultery and practicing magic were the ostensible charges brought against him.
He committed suicide after he was accused of treason (Law of majestas).
