Historical background



Vitellius was proclaimed on January 1 or 2, 69 by the armies of Germania. After Bédriac and the disappearance of Othon, in April 69, Vitellius moved to Rome in June. Vespasian was proclaimed by the army in Alexandria on July 1, 69 and Vitellius could not maintain himself. After a sedition broke out in Rome in December, he was assassinated on the 20th, and his body dragged into the Tiber, leaving Vespasian as sole ruler of the Roman Empire..
