  • Tribunus Plebis 122 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • He countered Gracchus' program by proposing 12 colonies of 3000 poor people each (App. BC 1.23; Plut. CG 9.2) with allotments of land free of rent (Plut.). He vetoed Gracchus' proposal to grant the franchise to the Latins and proposed that they merely be exempted from scourging (Plut. CG 9.3; App. BC 1.23), a proposal which may have become law (Sall. Iug. 69.4; but see Reid, JRS 1 [1911] 77-83; Sherwin-White, Rom. Citizenship 127f.). See also Cic. Brut. 109; Fin. 4.66; Plut. CG 8-11; App. BC 1.23; Auct. Vir. Ill. 66, where this Drusus and his son have been confused. (Broughton MRR I)
    • p. 257-63 (Thommen 1989)
  • Praetor before 114 urbanus, Rome (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • According to the list in Stella Maranca (316) Drusus is dated in 114, and Marius was sent to Spain as Praetor in the same year. (Broughton MRR I)
    • The latest possible date under the Lex Villia. On a decision he rendered, see Auct. Ad Herenn. 2.19; cf. Cic. Att. 7.2.8. (Broughton MRR I)
    • p. 745, footnote 220 (Brennan 2000)
  • Consul 112 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The filiation C. f. is given in Cic. Brut. 109, and in the Elogium of his son, CIL 1(2).1, p. 199- Inscr. Ital. 13.3.74. M. Aemiliani n. is conjectural, based on the form of the notice regarding his father, the Consul of 147, in Fast. Cap. (Broughton MRR I)
    • SIG 705, line 62 and 64; I. Cret. 3.4.10, line 86; CIL 1(2).2.585, line 29; Chr. 354 (Druso et Caesoniano); Fast. Hyd. (Bruto et Peone), so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod.; and on Piso, CIL 1(2).2.672, 673; I. Cret. 3.4.9, lines 11 and 87, and 10, line 89; cf. I. v. Magn. 105, line 58. See Degrassi 127, 474f. Drusus as governor of Macedonia (SIG(3) 705, line 64 campaigned successfully in Thrace against the Scordisci (Liv. Per. 63; Flor. 1.39.5; Ruf. Fest. Brev. 9.2; Amm. Marc. 27.4.10; cf. Dio 26, fr. 88; see 110, Promagistrates). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Proconsul 111 Macedonia (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Proconsul in Macedonia, where he campaigned against the Scordisci (see 112, Consuls, and 110, Promagistrates). In two inscriptions containing two letters by a Proconsul, presumably of Macedonia, to the Technitae of the Isthmia and the Nemea (IG 7.2413-2414) Klaffenbach supplied the name of L. Mummius (Symbolae Hist. Coll. Artif. Bacch. 24ff.), but Accame very reasonably suggests the name of M. Livius (Dominio romano in Grecia 2-7; cf. Daux, Delphes 356-372, esp. 358 note 1). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Proconsul 110 Macedonia (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Proconsul in Macedonia, whence he returned to celebrate a triumph over the Scordisci and the Macedonians (Act. Tr., Degrassi 84f., 561). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Triumphator 110 (Rich 2014) Expand
    • Triumph de Scordisteis, Macedonibusque. MRR I.544, Itgenshorst no. 228, Rich no. 228. (Rich 2014)
  • Censor 109 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Drusus died in office (Fast. Cap., Degrassi 54f., 127, 474f., names not preserved; Fast. Ant., ib. 162f., M. Aemili. Scau[rus], M. L[ivi.- - - -]), but Scaurus refused to abdicate until threatened with imprisonment by the Tribunes (Plut. RQ 50). Scaurus constructed the Via Aemilia through Pisa to Vada and Dertona, and restored the Mulvian bridge (Strabo 5.1.11; Auct. Vir. Ill. 72.8; cf. CIL 11.6664- ILS 5824; see Lamboglia, Athenaeum 15 [1937] 57-68), and either as Censor or as Consul drained some areas of Cispadane Gaul (Strabo). (Broughton MRR I)
