I'm not really sure what you're saying here. What "eyewitness accounts" are you referring to?
I think that Tacitus worked in the colonial administration. I am not actually sure if there are records substantiating this but I suspect that there would be, given that he's referred to as an eyewitness by historians of the era. I think that some of the guys like Michael Grant have written biographies, etc. of them.
