Nero’s Ultimate Indulgence (64) (1/9)

List item

Known for their lavish lifestyles and showcases of wealth as well as their promiscuity, the high risers in Roman society certainly knew how to host a party. Very few Romans quite encapsulated this lifestyle better than the infamous Emperor Nero who reigned between AD 54 and AD 68. From dormice sprinkled with poppyseed to hare’s with feathers strapped to them, the banquet was so grand that it was deemed fit to be included in the famous works of Tacitus.
