This chapter discusses the fifth emperor Nero’s murder of his mother, and his subsequent remorse. Unlike in the case of Alexander, all of the sources believe that Nero is sincere, but generally, they see his remorse as at most a small punishment of his behaviour and at its least, simply a fruitless display.
