He was a tyrannical ruler, and died suddenly in 1522.
In violation of the Law he married a brother's widow, who had already borne children, and in general he showed himself so fierce and tyrannical that the Jews joined with the Samaritans to accuse him before the emperor.
From this time he became tyrannical.

In 53 he entered upon the governorship of Cilicia, in which capacity he seems to have been rapacious and tyrannical.
