 The Internet Classics Archive | Tiberius Gracchus by Plutarch
Tiberius was the elder by nine years; owing to which their actions as public men were divided by the difference of the times in which those of the one and those of the other were performed.
Tiberius, immediately on his attaining manhood, had such a reputation that he was admitted into the college of the augurs, and that in consideration more of his early virtue than of his noble birth.
Tiberius was accordingly despatched to the enemy, whom he persuaded to accept of several conditions, and he himself complied with others; and by this means, it is beyond a question, that he saved twenty thousand of the Roman citizens, besides attendants and camp followers.

 Tiberius
Tiberius' failures, however seem to have been his inability to define his own role within the Principate and the roles of those around him, including the Senate.
Still, Tiberius left evidence of his own desire to be rid of the mantle of authority, being the only emperor to refuse the title 'Pater Patriae' (father of the country).
Tiberius' would be blasted by later Roman historians, all of whom would have ties to the Senatorial elite, and therefore, despite a generally solid rule (especially in terms of provincial administration), his legacy was permanently stained.

 Tacitus and Tiberius
Tiberius was also suspected of having orchestrated the death of Germanicus, of whom he was supposed to be jealous.
The reign of Tiberius also saw the immorality of Livia, "the niece of Augustus, the daughter-in-law of Tiberius, the mother of children by Drusus...[who] for a provincial paramour, foully disgraced herself, her ancestors, and her descendants, giving up honour and a sure position for prospects as base as they were uncertain" (IV.3).
Tiberius' disapproval was highly justified and his reasoning that "the spectacle of the slain and unburied made the army slow to fight and more afraid of the enemy" astute, but instead is suspected by Tacitus to be partly because Tiberius " [interprets] unfavourably every act of Germanicus" (I.62).

 The Lives of the Twelve Caesars - Tiberius
Such was the stock from which Tiberius Caesar derived his origin, and that too on both sides: on his father's from Tiberius Nero; on his mother's from Appius Pulcher, both of whom were sons of Appius Caecus.
