Emperor Tiberius The first half of Tiberius' reign 


Tiberius in Capri

During the second half of his reign Tiberius stayed in Capri. He left Rome in 26 a. C. and he went to Campania, precisely in Capri. He left the government in the hands of the praetorium magistrate Elio Seiano, though keeping his control over the Empire. He had a group of messengers at his own disposal and some towers like the Lighthouse tower of villa Jovis thanks to which he received all the news about his Empire.
In spite of all this, he did not realize that Seiano was not loyal to him. This magistrate was preparing the way to a riot: his aim was the throne. As soon as Tiberius was informed about his conduct he put him to death with all his followers.
During his stay in Capri he made built 12 villas, among which Villa Jovis is the biggest. Capri was his private island and he invited all the most outstanding artists and writers of his time because he was passionate with culture. Tiberius himself wrote many verses in Greek at that time. So, in spite of all the terrible things said about him, he was undoubtedly a cultivated man. The years he spent in Capri were a relaxing period for him and he dedicated himself to all his passions. Looking at villa Jovis we can say for sure that he had a refined taste for architecture and that he chose the right place to set an imperial villa.
