  • The Roman Empire

    Is there any truth to the story that "Nero played the hydraulis while Rome burned?" He didn't fiddle -
    he played the keyboard on the organ of his day.

    Let's toss this topic around.

    Most statues of him I've seen have him with a lyre.

      Where have you seen these statues? I've only seen images of Nero and never with any hydraulis. The story might be
      completely false, as are so many stories of long-ago people.

        If you wait a few years longer, you'll have a real-time replay.

          Is someone saying that Nero fiddled with his hydraulics whilst Rome burned???

            Well, if Nero did, then it was not for public viewing.
