It was a capital crime to view which person from above?

"Caligula was tall and very pallid, with an ill-formed body and extremely thin neck and legs. His eyes and temples were sunken, his forehead broad and forbidding, and his hair was absent on top, though his body was very hairy. Because of this, to mention a goat, or to look upon him from a higher place as he passed by, was a capital offence..." Suetonius, The Twelve Caesars, Book 4, L.
