Historical background


(135 BC) Caius Minucius Augurinus

Caius Minucius Augurinus and Titus Minucius Augurinus seem to have been brothers. They returned them the memory of an ancestor, prefect of the Annona in 439 BC successively in 135 and 134 BC, with full institutional and frumentaire crisis. In the year 620 (AUC., Ab Urbe Condita, since the founding of Rome), Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus Aemilianus Publius filius II and Caius Quintus Fulvius Flaccus were consuls filius. The role of the Gracchi is very important on the plane land. Tiberius Gracchus, tribune of the people who will be in 133 BC, about resumes campaign wants to impose an agrarian law, "lex Agraria" and thus opposes the senatorial party. Finally Tiberius Gracchus was murdered when he was re-elected.
