AbstractLeadership in Rome after the Flavian victory in the civil war of AD 68-9 is based on an agreement made by Vespasian, Titus, and C. Licinius Mucianus. Tacitus presents the latter in his Historiae as the person in charge in the western part of the empire. This article centers on the way in which Tacitus shows Mucianus’ leadership facing different serious challenges. It turns out that Mucianus is able to meet all threats to stability by appropriate measures. In Tacitus’ account, Mucianus shows excellent situational leadership.
