    • The commission of which Caesar Strabo was a member must be clearly distinguished from the one constituted under the legislation of Livius Drusus in 91, not only because of the order and dates of the offices in Caesar's career, as Mommsen saw, but because the definition of its functions given in his Elogium contains the word iudicandis (agris dandis attribuendis iudicandis), while that of Drusus is described simply as agris dandis assignandis (CIL 1(2).1, p. 199- Inscr. Ital. 13.3.74). Hence Cichorius was mistaken in supplying the name of Caesar in a fragmentary list which he believes to be the land commission of Livius (CIL 10.44, and p. 1003; RS 116-125). The legislation of Saturninus provides the only other point we know in this period when a land commission would be necessary, and the formula here suitably recalls that of the Gracchan commission (agris iudicandis assignandis), which would provide a precedent, among the other Gracchan precedents, to which Saturninus appealed. It is probable that Iulius Caesar's father settled colonists at Cercina under the same authority (see for restorations of his Elogia, and discussions of his career, Inscr. Ital. 13.3.7, and 75a, and Degrassi's discussion; Frank, AJPh 58 [1937] 90ff.; and most recently, Broughton, AJA 52 [1948] 323-330). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Settled colonists on the island of Cercina (Inscr. Ital. 13.3.7), either after 103 or 100, in accordance with legislation of Saturninus for Marian veterans (see also 103, Tribunes of the Plebs). (Broughton MRR I)

  • Praetor? 92 Asia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • 2 These Elogia, and the place of the Iulii in Cicero's list in Rab. Perd. 21, both indicate that the career of Caesar's father should be dated mainly between 100 and 90 B. C. (see Broughton, AJA 52 [1948] 323-330). If he held the quaestorship soon after 100 his praetorship and his proconsulate in Asia should be placed as late as possible before the command there of L. Cassius. Accordingly I suggest 92 for his praetorship and 91 for his proconsulate. (Broughton MRR II)
