NERO Commits Suicide ~ June 9, 68 C.E.


Roman Emperor Nero commits suicide, imploring his secretary to slit his throat to evade a Senate-imposed death by flogging.

Dennis and I passed by the site of his suicide as we climbed the hill in Subiaco on our way to see St. Benedicts's cave in October 2000.
