    12. The Conspiracy Unfolds

    11. Dystopian Caesar

    11. Dystopian Caesar

    Welcome to the dark twisted world of Lucius Sergius Catilina, a Populare and shadowy reflection of Julius Caesar. Catiline has the nerve to gamble like Caesar but does he have the skill needed to pull it off?  Correction: New Man or Homo Novus meant you were the first in your family to enter the Senate.

    9. Murder Courts

    9. Murder Courts

    Cato causes a ruckus as Quaestor, reopening old wounds from the days of the Dictator Sulla. In a bizzare trial, Caesar uses an archaic law dating back to the Kings of Rome to prove a political point.  Notes: The other religious college I mentioned is the Augurs. Correction: At one point I say Julius Caesar’s speeches as the prosecution do not survive in the Gaius Rabirius case. While it is correct that his speeches did not survive, he was not the prosecution, he was the judge (albiet not a very neutral one).

    8. The Plight of Bibulus

    8. The Plight of Bibulus

    Caesar gains a new enemy with his extravagant spending as Aedile. The ghost of Marius raises more controversy as Caesar openly challenges the Optimates and emboldens the Populares. (Enter Marcus Calpurnius Bibulus). Corrections: Cicero was from an Equestrian family.I referred to the god Victory when talking about the trophies to Maurius. In fact, this was a goddess and her name was Victoria.

    7. Pompey Over Pirates

    7. Pompey Over Pirates

    Pompey aims to gain an unprecedented command to wage war on the Mediteranean’s pirates. Caesar works to get in the General’s good graces.  Corrections: In this episode I say Caesar visits Transalpine Gaul after his Quaestorship. What I meant to say was that he visted Transpadane Gaul which is in the area of the Po Valley within the province of Cisalpine Gaul. Transalpine Gaul did not have Latin Rights.
