 Definition of Roman Emperor - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
As princeps senatus (lit., "first man of the senate"), the Emperor could receive foreign embassages to Rome (but for example Tiberius saw that as a typical task for any group of senators not including himself).
The office of princeps senatus, however, was not a magistracy and did not own imperium; in terms of the modern Westminster system, this is approximately comparable to diplomatic agents being accredited to the Leader of the House (the consuls functioned as a sort of hybrid between the Speaker of the House and the Prime Minister).
But if being "princeps" is seen as the determinating office he should have held for modern historians to call him Emperor, then no, he was not Emperor.
