Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D.

Tiberius became Augustus' stepson when the emperor married Livia in 38 B.C. Augustus forced Tiberius to divorce the wife he loved and to marry his daughter Julia. Tiberius hated his new wife and escaped her by going into voluntary exile at Rhodes in 6 B.C. After the deaths of the other possible successors, he was recalled in 2 A.D. and groomed to succeed Augustus, which he did on 19 August 14. The empire thrived under Tiberius; however, his reign was marred by a conspiracy to rule by his Praetorian Praefect Sejanus and by his descent into paranoia near the end of his reign. Tiberius moved to Capri in 26 and ruled from there until his natural death on 16 March 37.

Tiberius Gemellus and Germanicus II, Twin Grandsons of Tiberius, c. 19 - 23 A.D., Kyrene, Kyrenaica, North Africa

Tiberius Gemellus and Germanicus II were the twin sons of Drusus and Livilla, the grandsons of the Emperor Tiberius, and the cousins of the Emperor Caligula. Gemellus is a nickname meaning "the twin." Germanicus II died in childhood. Because Gemellus' was too young to assume the throne, Caligula was summoned by Tiberius to Capri in 35 where he and Gemellus were made joint-heirs. Tiberius may also have selected Caligula because, according to Suetonius, Tiberius detested Gemellus, believing he was result of an adulterous affair by his mother. Tacitus records that while they were in Capri, Tiberius, with Gemellus in his arms, looked at Caligula in tears and told him: "You will kill him, and another will kill you." Caligula had Gemellus killed in late 37 or early 38, not long after assuming power, and was himself assassinated in 41.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Tripolis ad Maeandrum, Lydia

Tripolis on the Meander (Tripolis ad Maeandrum, also Neapolis, Apollonia, and Antoninopolis) was on the borders of Phrygia, Caria and Lydia, on the northern bank of the upper course of the Maeander, and on the road leading from Sardes by Philadelphia to Laodicea ad Lycum. It was 20 km to the northwest of Hierapolis. The earliest mention of Tripolis is by Pliny (v. 30), who treats it as Lydian. Ptolemy (v. 2. § 18) and Stephanus of Byzantium describe it as Carian. Hierocles (p. 669) likewise calls it Lydian. Some modern academics have placed it in Phrygia. The ruins of Tripolis ad Maeandrum mostly date from the Roman and Byzantine periods and include a theater, baths, city walls, and a necropolis. An ancient church, dating back 1,500 years, was unearthed in 2013.
