Example text

53 BCE Crassus murdered after defeat at Battle of Carrhae. 49 BCE Caesar crosses Rubicon River and marches on Rome at head of army. 48 BCE Pompey assassinated in Egypt. 44 BCE Caesar assassinated in senate on ides of March. 42 BCE Mark Antony and Octavian defeat Brutus and Cassius at Battle of Philippi. 30 BCE Mark Antony and Cleopatra commit suicide. n the late first century BCE, the Roman republic was torn apart by a series of civil wars. A number of ambitious men fought for power. The ascent of one of them—Julius Caesar—ushered in a new era of Roman history.

Some 300 of Tiberius’s followers met a similar fate. Following Tiberius’s death in 133 BCE, the Roman senate divided into two factions. The young Scipio was given the task of bringing Carthage to its knees. In 146 BCE, Scipio managed to breach the outer wall of the city. The Carthaginian garrison, although weakened by hunger, put up strong resistance, and it took a week of hand-to-hand fighting through the streets to reach the citadel, where the remaining 50,000 citizens were huddled. Scipio took them all prisoner (later selling them into slavery) and set fire to the buildings, letting them burn to the ground.

Directly to the concilium plebis, bypassing the senate. The aristocratic senators, led by Tiberius’s cousin Scipio Africanus the Younger, not only saw this as a threat to their landholdings, but also to their political power—normally, such bills were discussed by the senate before they were presented to the concilium plebis. The senators persuaded another tribune, Marcus Octavius, to veto the bill. Not deterred by this, Tiberius convinced the assembly to remove the troublesome tribune from office.
