Gaius Suetonius Tranquillas, Roman Historian from 117-138 AD, writes in Life of Claudius>25:4: Because the Jews of Rome caused continuous disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus, he expelled them from the city. […] After the great fire at Rome […] Nero inflicted punishment on the Christians, a sect given to a new and mischievous religious belief.

This expulsion took place in 49 AD.
