Political Violence in the Roman Republic
Dec 23, 2007
This table compiles names of prominent individuals who were victims of political violence in the Roman Republic. The term is used loosely and includes those killed in civil war, exiled and/or convicted on various politically inspired prosecutions, as well as those proscribed and otherwise murdered.
This compilation highlights the period from the Gracchi to the Death of C. Iulius Caesar (132 – 44 BC). Parts 2 and 3 (detailing the early Republic and the period from Caesar to the 3rd Augustan settlement) will follow later.
