The Aftermath of the Consulship

The Aftermath of the Consulship

(p.149) XI The Aftermath of the Consulship
Cicero as Evidence

Andrew Lintott (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the lack of information from Cicero's writings about the political crisis that emerged at the turn of the consular year. Secondary sources indicate that there were complaints about the repression of the conspiracy combined with an attempt to entrust military operations against Catiline to Pompey. This last was proposed in a bill of Metellus Nepos as tribune, supported by Caesar as praetor, and was obstructed by Cato and Minucius Thermus. The genesis of Caesar's first consulship is discussed.

Keywords:   political crisis, Pompey, Caesar, consular year, Catiline, Metellus Nepos
