Always dressed with elegance, he wandered around the city in one of his carriages, taking to slaps and swearwords all those who barred his way, especially the coachmen, his favorite targets. He was in this sense the prince of the joke, with quarrels and complaints that helped to promote him as a symbol of an era, making him fit into the stories and legends of Rome. all the fights and charges contributed to make him the symbol of an era, and a legend in the history of Rome.
