(p.408) XX Epilogue
Cicero as Evidence

Andrew Lintott (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The death of the consuls at Mutina left a vacuum at the summit of the administration at Rome, which in the short term gave more scope to those like Cicero who were pursuing the interests of the conspirators and wished to maintain the fight with Antonius. This chapter focuses on Cicero's correspondence for three more months, which mainly consists of campaign reports by the commanders of the armies and Cicero's replies, sometimes encouraging and sometimes revealing the fragility of the situation in Italy. The correspondence with Marcus Brutus; and how, upon his death, Cicero' life became a weapon in literary struggle between the new Caesar and his opponents are discussed.

Keywords:   Mutina, correspondence, Italy, Africa, proconsuls, Marcus Brutus, Octavianus
