This is the imposthume of much wealth and peace, That inward breaks, and shows no cause without Why the man dies.

Hmm. Wealth and peace create an imposthume? An abscess? Or maybe – it’s like in the warm hospitable environment of wealth and peace, it becomes much more possible for a dark disease to grow. The way, say, a tropical island – so warm and wet can encourage a rot…but it is not the fault of the island, just the hospitality of the environment.
And in this case, Claudius is likely the disease that wealth and peace allows to multiply.
