3 Flavian delineations Vespasian was the first Roman emperor to establish a genuine hereditary dynasty: his son Titus was, as Charles Murison (CHAPTER 4) reminds us, the first emperor to succeed his biological father; after his short reign he was, in turn, succeeded by his younger brother Domitian. When the latter was assassinated in 96 ce, the hereditary dynasty came to an abrupt end, having lasted a mere 27 years. One potential objection to accepting the validity of a “Flavian Age” arises from the short timespan involved.

The last Flavian epic poet active whose work has come down to us is Silius Italicus (more fully Tiberius Catius Asconius Silius Italicus). Born during the principate of Tiberius, his life extends at least until the beginning of the principate of Trajan, at which point he disappears from the historical record. A senator, his career reached its culmination under Vespasian with his appointment to the proconsulship of Asia, an office at the pinnacle of the senatorial cursus honorum. Silius’ son was himself consul in 94, which enables us to situate him in the imperial court or in a milieu not far removed from it.
