Philo  the Jew was a 
contemporary of the Biblical Jesus but does not mention a  Jesus nor the 
Jewish-Christians, though he thoroughly accounts for every  Jewish sect. 
The Roman have no record of him. 

There is a reference to him in Suetonius' life of Claudius.
Apparently the Romans knew the name well enough to think ill of him.   I 
particularly like Tacitus description of the Christians as a "sect noted for  th
eir abominations," and his description of Nero's failed attempt to wipe them  
out as the one praiseworthy thing that Nero attempted.
