    • The court for the trial of Clodius for sacrilege was constituted according to the proposals in a bill of Calenus, not the original consular measure (Cic. Att. 1.14.5, and 16.2; Paradox. 32; Ascon. 45 C; Plut. Caes. 10.5; Schol. Bob. 85 Stangl). Cf. Cic. Fam. 5.6.1. (Broughton MRR II)

  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 48 Epirus, Achaea (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Legatus pro praetore (SIGĀ³ 761 B; IG 7.380; I. v. Olymp. 330). He brought troops to Epirus for Caesar (Caes. BC 3.14, and 26; App. BC 2.58), was sent to occupy Achaea (Caes. BC 3.56; Plut. Caes. 43.1; Brut. 8.2-4; Dio 42.14). Caesar placed him in command in Achaea when he went on to Egypt (Caes. BC 3.106.1; Fouilles de Delphes 3.1.176f., no. 318, cf. Holleaux REA 19 [1917] 94; Auct. Bell Alex. 44.2; Dio 42.13-14; cf. Cic. Att. 11.8.2, and 15.2, and 16.2). (Broughton MRR II)

  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 47 Achaea (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Legatus pro praetore in Greece (see 48, Legates). His command in Greece continued into 47 (Cic. Att. 11.16.2, June 3), but he later returned to Rome and became Consul (see above, Consuls). (Broughton MRR II)
  • Legatus (Envoy) 43 (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • These five consulars, selected from all factions, were, appointed early in March to serve on a second embassy to Antony, but upon reconsideration Servilius and Cicero withdrew and the embassy was not sent (Cic. Phil. 12, passim, esp. 1-2 and 18, with the names, and 28; Dio 46.32.2-4; see D.-G. 1.201-205; H. Frisch, Cicero's Fight for the Republic 239-247). (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 42 Italia, Gallia Transalpina (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • 1 The use of the terms Legate and Proconsul under the Second Triumvirate is of necessity attended by uncertainty and confusion. Commanders, like Ventidius Bassus, who were for the most part ex-Consuls, held command over large and important areas and armies, and apparently acted with considerable initiative, are termed Legati in Latin sources such as the Periochae of Livy and Florus and # in Dio (Liv. Per. 127, 128; Flor. 2.19; Dio 48.41.5; cf. 49.21, and Act. Tr. for 38, on the title and triumph of Ventidius), and yet many of them appear in the lists of triumphs as Proconsuls. In mentioning the triumph of Domitius Calvinus, Dio (48.42.3-4) remarks that those in power granted honors at will # (see also 49.42.3; 54.12.1-2). Mommsen finds the beginning of this contradiction in Caesar's grant of triumphs at the end of 45 to his Legates Fabius Maximus and Q. Pedius (see 45, Promagistrates). Like these, the later commanders were Legates also under the superior imperium of the Triumviri, and their appearance as Proconsuls depended upon a fictive grant of imperium for the day of their triumph (Str. 1.125, 130f.; 2.245, note 1). The term Proconsul cannot refer to their status in command since a Legate never had more than an imperium pro praetore. The term Legatus pro consule does not occur, and indeed cannot occur because it is intrinsically self-contradictory (ibid. 1.130f.). Moreover it was simply this permission to triumph that made it logically possible for some of these Legates to accept acclamation as Imperator (see, on Sosius, Mommsen Str. 1.125). Mommsen's doctrine is difficult to test because in nearly all cases no official inscriptions remain from the period of command, and several of the commands are known only from the record of the triumph (see 34-32, Promagistrates, on Norbanus Flaccus, Statilius Taurus, Marcius Philippus, Olaudius Pulcher, and L. Cornificius). The term Legatus in Livy and Florus is strongly in his favor, since Die might have been affected by the regular system of Legati pro praetore in the Empire. However, as Canter saw (46-55), the situation was more complicated. The illogicality of a subordinate with an imperium pro consule occurs under Antony on the official coinage in Greece of M. lunius Silanus, who terms himself Quaestor pro consule (see 34, Promagistrates; note that in the Empire Pliny could be given the exceptional position of Legatus pro praetore consulari potestate), and raises the question how many commanders senior to Silanus may not also have held an imperium pro consule under the superior imperium of the Triumviri. Moreover, Sosius (Cos. 32) apparently termed himself Imperator on his coinage from 37 B. C. (see 37, Promagistrates), on a rather distant anticipation of the moment of a fictive grant of imperium pro consule for a day in 34; and there were others, like Laronius (see 33, Consules Suffecti), who took the title Imperator and did not triumph at all. The period of the Second Triumvirate was a period of transition in which irregularities and illogicalities could frequently occur in the government of the Roman Empire, before the Augustan regime rebuilt the pattern anew. I have therefore been inclined to keep the question open; and to list among the Promagistrates the holders of important commands under Octavian and Antony who received acclamation as Imperatores or celebrated triumphs. It must be granted that the superior position of the Triumvirs in this period made the difference between the functions of a Promagistrate and of a Legate much less than it had been before. See Ganter 46-55. (Broughton MRR II)
    • No title preserved. Antony left him in command of troops in Italy (App. BC 5.3, cf. 12). See 41, Promagistrates. (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 41 Italia, Gallia Transalpina (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Antonius' commander in Gaul beyond the Alps and probably also in Nearer Spain (App. BC 5.33, and 51, and 59-61; Dio 48.10.1, with Ventidius). He opposed the passage of Octavian's Legate Salvidienus to Spain, and though summoned by Fulvia to the aid of Lucius Antonius (App. BC 5.33) remained in Gaul. (Broughton MRR II)
  • Proconsul 40 Italia, Gallia Transalpina (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • See 41, Promagistrates. His sudden death in the middle of the year enabled Octavian, to Antony's considerable irritation at the breach of the agreement among the Triumvirs, to assume command of Transalpine Gaul and the eleven legions stationed there (App. BC 5.51, and 54, and 59, and 6 1 ; Dio 48.20.3; see Ganter 9-11).
