Sample text

As his name suggests, Pompey was the leading man of the day: a brilliant general, who triumphed before he was even a senator and who was elected consul (in the same year as Crassus) by special dispensation at an age when he was legally too young to hold the office. He was now extending Rome’s domination of the east, and, as was regularly the case with glorious generals in Rome, he was the people’s darling. Which meant naturally that the residue of the oligarchy resented him as much as they feared his singular stature.

It may well have been that his civic crown was small consolation for his failed prosecutions (the Roman public, after all, tended to assume that all aristocrats, civically crowned or not, were valorous). Or it may have been Caesar’s lifestyle that others found disturbing. Roman aristocrats of a traditional ilk eschewed fancy clothes and excessive elegance, opting instead for a homelier look, replete with bushy eyebrows and conventional homespun garb – all the better to identify themselves with their unspoiled and unimpeachable ancestors.

Caesar’s speeches and legal proposals in Pompey’s behalf will not have escaped the Great Man’s notice – not least because the Great Man, who returned to Rome at the end of the sixties, soon found that he, too, needed political allies. The arrogant Pompey had arranged Rome’s eastern affairs without seeking any form of traditional senatorial cooperation, and he had promised pensions to his troops. He expected a compliant senate to leap to the ratification of his requests without demur or discussion.
