Claudius, 25 January 41 - 13 October 54 A.D.

Claudius was one of the most capable, yet unlikely emperors. Shunned as an idiot by his family due to a limp and embarrassing stutter, Claudius spent the first decades of his life absorbed in scholarly studies until the death of his nephew Caligula. After Caligula's murder, the Praetorian Guard found him hiding behind a curtain in the Imperial Palace, expecting to be murdered. Instead, the guard proclaimed him emperor. His reign was marred by personal catastrophes, most notably promiscuity and betrayal by his third wife. He governed well and conquered the troublesome island of Britain. He was poisoned by his fourth wife, Agrippina Jr., mother of Nero.

"A particularly devastating earthquake struck the area in 17 C.E., destroying the city of Sardis and doing extensive damage to Philadelphia. To help the city recover from this disaster, Emperor Tiberius remitted the tribute owed to Rome for a period of five years. In gratitude, Philadelphia took the name Neocaesarea and dedicated a temple to Tiberius. Although the city was slow to recover from the devastation caused by the earthquake and its aftershocks, it eventually prospered under Roman rule. By the 5th century it was sometimes referred to as little Athens because of its many temples and religious festivals." -- A Guide to Biblical Sites in Greece and Turkey, by Clyde E Fant and Mitchell G Reddish
