Do we have proof Nero poisoned Britannicus, as is asserted by this article? The article on Nero says he died mysteriously and cites Suetornius, one hostile to Nero, as a propenent of the conjecture he did. I think if the assertion remain, there should be an appropriate reference beside it, or it should be made clear it is an opinion. Rintrah 10:29, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
In a similar vein, what is the source on Octavia's death, and what do modern scholars say? "Terror" would of course make her bleed to death faster because of the rush of adrenaline, and I'm not sure about this "suffocating in a hot vapor bath" business. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:18, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
