Full text not available from this repository.


The reputations of a great many figures in history have been established by chance and opportunity: a single victory on the battlefield, a political triumph in domestic affairs. This statement is equally applicable for that century between 146 and 31 BC, which today is usually designated the Late Roman Republic. On the basis of often rather meagre facts, reputations have been constructed and, as a result, whole careers became mythologised by later writers even in antiquity. The main aim of this volume is to question certain reputations in order to place into a more realistic historical context the subjects under discussion.
