Note 004
From Chapter 19 of the Decline & Fall

We need only mention Posides, a freedman and eunuch of Claudius, in whose favour the emperor prostituted some of the most honourable rewards of military valour. See Suetonius in Claudius , c. 28. Posides employed a great part of his wealth in building.

Ut spado vincebat Capitolia nostra Posides. Juvenal. Sat. xiv. [91.]
