Vetting Status: high
[Julianus,] the consul, who bought the imperial power.[1] When he came into office, he immediately began to spend his leisure in luxury and drunkenness, applying himself lazily to the care of public affairs, and devoting himself to delicate living. He was also found to have deceived the soldiers, for he did not have so much money at home, and the public treasuries had been emptied by Com[m]odus.[2] For this cause the soldiers grew angry and the people in the theater held him in contempt.
Greek Original:
Ἰουλιανός, ὁ ὕπατος, ὠνησάμενος τὴν βασιλείαν, ἐπεὶ παρῆλθεν εἰς τὴν ἀρχήν, εὐθέως τρυφαῖς καὶ κραιπάλαις ἐσχόλαζε, τῇ μὲν τῶν δημοσίων ἐπιμελείᾳ ῥᾳθύμως προσφερόμενος, ἐς δὲ τὸ ἁβροδίαιτον ἐπιδιδοὺς ἑαυτόν. εὑρίσκετο δὲ καὶ τοὺς στρατιώτας ψευσάμενος: οὔτε γὰρ οἴκοθεν ἦν αὐτῷ τοσαῦτα χρήματα, καὶ οἱ δημόσιοι θησαυροὶ ἐκεκένωντο ὑπὸ Κομόδου. ἐκ ταύτης τῆς αἰτίας οἵ τε στρατιῶται ἠγανάκτουν, καὶ ὁ δῆμος ἐν τῷ θεάτρῳ ἐν καταφρονήσει αὐτὸν ἐποίει.
