For emperors = "shame for themselves and glory for their opponents"

Tacitus 1.11

Tacitus 1.13
• Lucius Arruntius causes similar offense, Tiberius feels threatened by him as Augustus said Arrunitus "was not unworthy and would have the daring, if the chance were given him" • Tiberius says Gnaeus Piso Gallus, and Arrunitius all fell into "various accusations of Tiberius' design"

• Quintus Haterius and Mamercus Scaurus both incur Tiberius' anger, Scarus says Tib hadn't "vetoed the motion of the consuls by virtue of his tribunician power".

Eventually "exhausted by the uproar from everyone and by the protests of individuals he gradually relented"
