Nero, Corruption Personified.

Roman Emperor from 54 to 68 C.E. Adopted by Emperor Claudius, he succeeded him upon his death. His reign was characterized by extravagance and tyranny. Morally weak and extremely sensual, he was guilty of many murders, including his wife’s. He was accused of allowing the fire that destroyed two-thirds of Rome to burn. Nero escaped being overthrown by committing suicide. Restorers' Comment: This Figure was given a lavish new wardrobe, and the body was extensively reworked.
