He wrote during the early Imperial period of the Roman Empire. De vita Caesarum, a collection of biographies of 12 later Roman emperors, including Julius Caesar and Domitian, is probably his most significant surviving work. Suetonius also wrote on politics, oratory, the day-to-day activities of Rome, and the lives of notable writers such as grammarians, historians, and poets. Many of these books have been lost, but a couple have survived in part.
