Gaius Fannius wrote about the deaths of famous men executed under Nero (Pliny, Letters 5.5.1–3), and Titinius Capito wrote Exitus illustrium virorum (Departure of Famous Men), which focused on death scenes. The same fashion was followed by Tacitus (see his narratives of the final days of Seneca [Annals 16.21–35], and of Thrasea and Soramus [Annals 16.21–35]).
