Historical background


(91 BC) Decimus Junius Silanus

In 91 BC, Lucius Marcius Philippus and Sextus Julius Caesar were consuls. The tribune Marcus Livius Drusus proposes to reform the electoral law in favor of the allies (citizenship status). The assassination of Drusus causes a backlash resulting in the massacre of Romans Asculum and inflames the Italian allies, the beginning of the Social War (91-88 BC).
