Note 057
From Chapter 3 of the Decline & Fall

After the virtuous and unfortunate widow of Germanicus had been put to death, Tiberius received the thanks of the senate for his clemency. She had not been publicly strangled; nor was the body drawn with a hook to the Gemoniae, where those of common malefactors were exposed. Tacitus, The Annals, vi. 25. Suetonius in Tiberius, c. 53.
