This thesis investigates the sentence of exile in Rome from the years 58 BC to AD 68.
Its central argument is that exile increased in severity from the end of the Republic
until it had been turned into a despotic tool at the end of the Julio-Claudian Dynasty.
The thesis also aims to convey diachronically the sense of exile through an analysis of
its experiential effect on those who suffered banishment from Rome, while taking
account of legal changes and explaining the various forms of exile, aquae et ignis
interdictio, relegatio and deportatio. Primary sources referred to include the exilic
works of Cicero, Ovid and Seneca, the historical texts of Tacitus, Suetonius and
Cassius Dio, as well as a wide range of other ancient writers. Additional research
methods include the use of epigraphic and material evidence. A full bibliography of
secondary sources and appendices on key moments and places of exile are included.
