"... Everything, however, was softened down for the emperor's ears, and Suetonius was retained in the government; but as he subsequently lost a few vessels on the shore with the crews, he was ordered, as though the war continued, to hand over his army to Petronius Turpilianus, who had just resigned his consulship.Petronius neither challenged the enemy nor was himself molested, and veiled this tame inaction under the honourable name of peace" (Cornelius Tacitus Annals XIV.xxxix)
"Accordingly Petronius Turpilianus was sent to the province
as less inflexible; a stranger to the crimes of the enemy, he would be
in proportion soft-hearted if they repented. He arranged the outstanding
difficulties, but, without venturing on any further action, handed over
the province to Trebellius Maximus. ..."
(Cornelius Tacitus Agricola XVI.iii)
