Domitian. (n.d.). Retrieved October 15th, 2018, from http://www.yourdictionary.com/domitian
Originally Titus Flavius Domitianus. AD 51-96
Emperor of Rome (81-96) who completed the conquest of Britain. After 89 his government became dictatorial, leading to a reign of terror. Domitian was assassinated by a freedman in connivance with his empress and officers of the court.
The construction of the coast road, the Via Severiana, from Ostia to Tarracina, added to the importance of the place; and the beauty of the promontory with its luxuriant flora and attractive view had made it frequented by the Romans as early as 200 B.C. Galba and Domitian possessed country houses here.
It was finished in the thirteenth year of Domitian (93).
The second advance was made by Domitian about A.D.
Worship of an emperor during his lifetime, except as the worship of his genius, was, save in the cases of Caligula and Domitian, confined to the provinces.
But Domitian, according to pagan historians, bore hardly on them.
