Hermes 148 (2):198 (2020)

Abstract
This paper analyses discussions of Nero's voice in texts critical of the emperor, above all the works of Tacitus, Suetonius, and Cassius Dio. It argues that criticism of Nero's voice centres around four topics: Nero's hubristic longing for a divine revelation of his voice ; Nero's training and care of his voice in a way that is too professional, distracts him from his imperial duties, and is still unsuccessful; the caricature of Nero's voice as female or animalistic; the orator Nero's emancipation and finding of his own voice as a harmful development.
