Formatted abstract
Berriman & Todd have proposed a radical interpretation of the insurrection in AD 97 against the emperor Nerva, which holds that Casperius Aelianus was Trajan's agent. However, a critical review of this thesis and, in particular, of a passage in the Panegyricus suggests that it is implausible that Casperius was an agent of Trajan and had forced his adoption. We should accept the older scholarly view that Casperius Aelianus was an agent of another candidate for the throne, most probably Publius Cornelius Nigrinus Curiatus Maternus.
