Messalina

Messalina was fifteen and Claudius fifty when they married. 

So a sexually abused child had sex with other men.  
And was killed for it. 
Life has some rotten traits.

Now this is because of Claudius the God and his wife Messalina.  As I read it I kept thinking “but she was a kid!” And “call her a whore? Even if she were, this is the behavior of an abused child.”

And yet, who says that about the Romans? You hear licentious. You hear depraved.  Who notes: this was a child.
