Shall I do such a deed. Lepidus, though disgraced, was pontifex maximus; and it would be against established practice for an incumbent to be stripped of this august priesthood while still alive.

While Augustus did not go so far as to station the legions along the frontier as a defensive garrison force as was to happen in later ageshe at least removed them from the center of power and began the process of keeping them in the vicinity of the frontiers.

Timaeus wrote with a negative view of Rome. After his consulship, Caesar gained control of the provinces of Illyricum and Cisalpine and Transalpine Gaul. Quite the opposite, Shakespeare's Brutus is a man imbued with honor whose actions are undertaken only for the good of the people.

The Annales Maximi were a running set of annals kept by the Pontifex Maximus.


The men varied in rank from senators proconsuls, usually of praetorian rank, in public provinces; legates of praetorian or consular rank in imperial ones to equites governing as prefects, as in Egypt and some of the smaller, unarmed provinces.

As the conspirators meet to discuss who should partake in their plot, Cicero is suggested as a potential member. His continuing link with Cleopatra, despite his marriage to Octavia, was among the most troublesome, and it had produced two children.

One of the consuls of 41 BC was L. It is no matter, his name's Cinna; pluck but his name out of his heart, and turn him going. According to Greek mythology, ''Celtus'' was the son of Heracles and ''Keltine''the daughter of ''Bretannus''.

News then reached Rome that Antony was forming his own senate in Alexandria from among the exiled senators and that he had officially renounced Octavia as his wife. In some cases, he altered its sequence. The Historiae describe in general the history of the years 78—67 BC.

This can be seen in Shakespeare's development of Caesar and Brutus' personalities. Though in both versions he is rejected, it is by different means that Cicero finds himself excluded. Augustus simply had to make known his preferences for matters to transpire accordingly, so that, for instance, candidates for office whom he favored invariably got elected.

In the face of Marcellus's earlier preferment, the sources abound with rumors of Agrippa's voluntary departure in high dudgeon or of his forcible exile, but such speculations are demonstrably without merit.

The Annals of Tacitus

I. Julius Caesar, the Divine 3, lost his father 4 when he was in the sixteenth year of his age 5; and the year following, being nominated to the office of high-priest of Jupiter 6, he repudiated Cossutia, who was very wealthy, although her family belonged only to the equestrian order, and to whom he had been contracted when he was a mere boy.

Quote: Although it was commissioned by the Emperor Augustus, the poem is more than early imperial propaganda. It proclaims the divine mission of Aeneas to found Rome and the divine injunction of the Romans to unite the world under a noble Emperor such as Augustus.
