  • Praetor before 70 (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • 3 The latest date possible under the Cornelian law. (Broughton MRR II)
    • p. 749 (Brennan 2000)
  • Consul 68 (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • CIL 12.2.905, 956; Dio 36.4.1; Chr. 354 (Metello et Vatia); Fast. Hyd. (Marcio Rege et Metello), so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod.; and on Marcius, CIL 12.2.747, and perhaps 660 (but see 118, Consuls). See Degrassi 131, 488f. Metellus died early in the year (Dio 36.4.1). Cilicia was withdrawn from the command of Lucullus and assigned to Marcius (Dio 36.2.2; cf. Suet. Iul. 8; see 67, Promagistrates). (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 67 Cilicia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Proconsul in Cilicia with three legions (Sall. Hist. 5.13-14 M; Dio 36.15.1, and 17.2; cf. CIL 12.2.747). Malalas notes his presence in Antioch in 67 or 66 (225, lines 7-11, ed. Bonn.; cf. Diod. 40.1a-b, in FHG 2.xxiv-xxvi; Dio 36.17.2-3; Jerome Chr. ad ann. 68, p. 153 Helm; see G. Downey, CPh 32 [1937] 144-151). (Broughton MRR II)
    • Additions and Corrections. See now G. Downey, "The Occupation of Syria by the Romans," TAPhA 72 (1951) 149-163. Since recruitment of soldiers for the amry of Marcius Rex was already in progress in Cisalpine Gaul in 68 it is possible that he arrived in his province somewhat earlier than Downey supposes (p 152). See Suet. Iul. 8; and 69, Quaestors, on Caesar. See also p 154, 66 BC, Promagistrates, on Q. Marcus Rex. (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 66 Cilicia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Proconsul in Cilicia (see 67, Promagistrates). Superseded by Pompey under the Manilian law (Dio 36.42-43, cf. 48.2). He was saluted as Imperator and demanded a triumph (Sall. Cat. 30.3-4; 33.1; see 63, and 62, Promagistrates). (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 65 Italia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • See 67-62, Promagistrates. His demand for a triumph continued to be obstructed. (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 64 Italia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • His triumph was still obstructed. See 67-63, Promagistrates. (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 63 Italia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Proconsul (see 67-64, Promagistrates). Still waiting outside Rome for permission to celebrate his triumph, he was sent to check the forces of Catiline's Lieutenant Manlius in Etruria at Faesulae (Sall. Cat. 30.3; 33.1-34.1). There is no mention of his triumph, and he died before May 15, 61 (Cic. Att. 1.16.10). (Broughton MRR II)
