Herodian in his work makes extensive use of fake news. In this regard, five significant cases are analyzed: the events of Tigidius Perennis and Cleander under Commodus; the story of Plautian under Septimius Severus; some minor events under Septimius Severus, Caracalla and Elagabalus. The use of fake news seems to obey at least two main functions: the control and release of information by the power; as a narrative expedient to dramatize events that sometimes has little credible outlines.

Abstract

Herodian in his work makes extensive use of fake news. In this regard, five significant cases are analyzed: the events of Tigidius Perennis and Cleander under Commodus; the story of Plautian under Septimius Severus; some minor events under Septimius Severus, Caracalla and Elagabalus. The use of fake news seems to obey at least two main functions: the control and release of information by the power; as a narrative expedient to dramatize events that sometimes has little credible outlines.
