 Claudius 2 - Crystalinks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
General consensus is that Claudius was murdered by poison - possibly contained in mushrooms - on October 13th, AD 54.
Since Claudius (like most of the members of his dynasty) heavily criticized his predecessors and relatives in surviving speeches, it is not hard to imagine the nature of Suetonius' charge.
Graves's fictive artifice that they were recently discovered translations of writings by Claudius extended even to the point of Claudius relating a visit to an oracle who predicted their discovery "nineteen hundred year or near" later.

A comparison of the accounts suggests that both were using the same source for Caecus’ censorship, and that both misinterpreted the passage to result in different years for the rejection of the lectio, both wrong.
For both Caecus and Fabius, this elogium differs from the better known Forum-Augusti examples, and presents otherwise unattested activity: for Caecus, we hear of no dealings with a Hannibal, for Fabius there is nothing about a lectio.
This is Diodorus’ only extended mention of any censorship or of Caecus, and the details, as well as his account of the rest of the year, suggest that he was drawing on the same ultimate source as Livy.
