  • Quaestor before 60 Rome (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Spoke among the last in a meeting of the Senate in March of this year (Cic. Att. 1.19.9), and so may have held the quaestorship by this year. (Broughton MRR II)
    • Cos. 48, 41. Quaestor 61. As he was a senator, and spoke as a junior member among the last in a debate in March 60 (Cic. Att. 1.19.9), his quaestorship should be dated in or before 61 (cf. MRR 2.184). Augur before 46. In MRR 2.292-293, 47 B.C., insert his name with a reference to Fam. 13.68.2, in which Cicero addresses him as collega. See Shackleton Bailey, CLF 2.375. Cf. MRR 2.255, and see above, on L. Marcius Philippus (77). (Broughton MRR III)

In this year Caesar brought an army across the Adriatic, and after winter engagements, such as his attempt to besiege Pompey at Dyrrachium, won a decisive victory over Pompey at Pharsalus, then pursued him to Egypt, and toward the end of the year became embroiled in the dispute between Cleopatra and her brother for the Egyptian throne (Caes. BG 3; Auct. Bell. Alex. 1-25; Liv. Per. 110-112; Vell. 2.51-54; Lucan 5.403-10.546; Suet. Iul. 35; Plut.

Servilius meantime in Italy (Dio 42.17.1) suppressed the illegal activities of Caelius Rufus (Caes. BC 3.21; Dio 42.22.1- 25.3; cf. Cic. Fam. 8.17; Quintil. Inst. Or. 6.3.25; see below, Praetors), and after receiving news of Caesar's victory at Pharsalus, named him Dictator for a second time (Dio 42.21.1; see below, Dictator). (Broughton MRR II)

  • Proconsul 44 Asia (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Proconsul in Asia (see 46, and 45, Promagistrates), whence he returned when succeeded by Trebonius. He arrived in Rome by or before September 44 (Cic. Fam. 12.2.1; cf. Nic. Dam. Fit. Caes. 28, FGrH 2A.413, #, and Schwartz, Hermes 33 [1898] 184). (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)

Antonius celebrated a triumph ex Alpibus on January 1 (Act. Tr.; Fast. Barb.; Dio 48.4). Incited by Antony's wife Fulvia, he soon clashed with Octavian regarding the confiscation of lands in cities of Italy and their distribution among veterans. After first attempting to maintain the interest of his brother in the settlement of veterans he later claimed to be a protector of the towns, and a champion of the rights of the Consuls against the Triumvir Octavian. Several attempts at agreement with Octavian, mainly caused by pressure from the soldiers, proved ineffectual, and war broke out, with L. Antonius by the end of the year tightly besieged in Perusia awaiting the hesitant help of the forces under the various Antonian commanders in Italy (App. BC 4.12-34; Dio 48.5-14; cf. Liv. Per. 125-126; Vell. 2.74.2-3; Suet. Aug. 13-14; Plut. Ant. 30.1; Flor. 2.16; Eutrop. 7.3.4; Oros. 6.18.17-18; see below, Promagistrates, on Asinius Pollio, Munatius Plancus, and Ventidius Bassus). Meantime Servilius remained quietly in the background (Dio 48.13.4). (Broughton MRR II)
