"Pope/bishop" Linus is a fake, he really matches emperor Vespasian.
-- Linus: Name Linus "flax coloured hair" or "net". (They say that they can't be sure that bishop/pope Linus is same as Linus of NT, and that the tradition that they are same may really be just a case of "similarity of the name".) -- Vespasian: Name Flavius "yellow coloured hair" (Flavia gens, founded Flavian Dynasty). [Dictionaries confirm that flax coloured hair and yellow coloured hair are almost exactly the same.] (Urinals named after him. [Yellow too.] Died of fever. [Yellow fever?]) [(Gaius) *Licinius* Mucianus treated Vespasian with scant respect?] [Aulus Caecina *Aelienus* conspiracy?] A tomb inscription "...linvs"? Pliny the Elder wrote during his reign. Hercules killed Linus with a lyre. Apollo killed Linus because he had challenged him to a musical contest. Vespasian fell asleep when Nero playing lyre? Vespasian erected a statue of Apollo. Linus/Maneros in Egyptian in Herodotus. Vespasian was connected with Egypt. Lenus god of healing. (Vespasian visited temple of Serapis). "two [Egyptian] labourers who were convinced that he [Vespasian] possessed a divine power that could work miracles. .... Stories of a divine Vespasian healing people circulated in Egypt. .... Stories of a supernatural emperor...." [Vespasian "fulfilled the standard succession of public offices" ~ line??]
-- Linus: 2 pictures shown him with a bald head with 2 side patches and a 1 patch in middle-front. -- Vespasian: Depicted with a bald head with 2 side patches and a patch in middle-top.
-- Linus: Linus is either 2nd Pope (1st after Peter), or 1st Pope (exluding Peter), or omitted (with Clement as next after Peter). -- Vespasian: Vespasian is 2nd emperor counting from Nero (1st emperor after Nero, excluding 3 usurupers), or omitted since "Domitian reincarnated Nero".
-- Linus: No historical verification. No proof that the Linus of NT/Bible is same as "pope/bishop" Linus of papists. Earliest sources are Irenaeus c 180 & Tertullian, and they are not necessarily reliable. His martyrdom "cannot be proved and is improbable". Contradiction of sources whether 2nd pope/bishop was Linus or Clement. -- Vespasian: Real historically verified person.
-- Linus "Pope/Papa / bishop / [pontiff]", successor of Peter. [Successor of Eliakim & keys of house of David.] -- Vespasian: [The first 46+ "popes" names etc match the Emperors names etc.] Emperors from Augusutus to Theodosius were Pontiffex Maximus. "Vespasian, dressed as Pontifex Maximus" ["Vespasian then ordered all descendants of the royal line of David to be hunted down.... ... probably ... to suppress any rival claimants arising from that dynasty.] His grandfather named Petro. King of Paltisca.
-- Linus: Mother Claudia (but they otherwise say that Claudia is from 'Timothy' and it is not actually explicitly identified as his mother) -- Vespasian: Claudius' wife Agrippina. Preceeded by Julio-Claudian dynasty. "temple to the deified Claudius"? [Claud "lame, crippled". Vespasian contracted a slight illness which eventually he died from.]
-- Linus: Was a "martyr" (but they otherwise say that this can't be proved and is unlikely, and he is not listed as a martyr in Roman martyrology). [Epistle of martydom of Peter & Paul.] -- Vespasian: By inversion: "Vespasian then ordered all descendants of the royal line of David to be hunted down...." Helvidius Priscus put to death? [Tomb with inscription ...linvs?] [Peter mentions a persecution which may be either/between Nero's &/or Domitian's.] [Martyr Antipas in 'Revelation'?]
-- Linus: "2 bishops Linus & Cletus". Some popes lists/source omit Cletus/Anacletus. -- Vespasian: Vespasian & Titus have same almost exact same 3 names?
