Rome Setting: y Christian/Jewish/Pagan: p
Mystery: n First Person: y

Subject: Satirical account (by a naive Poppaea) of the (comically inept) murderous relationship betweenNero (aided by a sly Seneca and a bubling Anicetus) and his mother Agrippina.
Unique Qualities: Based on the Italian-made movie starring Brigitte Bardot
Rating: Funny but lightweight. Not much useful historical information but amusing if you already know the events (perhaps even if you don't). (FM)
