Historical background


(49 BC) Cnæus Nerius

Gnaeus was Nerius urban quaestor 49 BC It seems to belong to the party of Pompey and certainly had to follow his master when Julius Caesar had crossed the Rubicon and was seized Rome. He followed the consuls in Sicily. Lucius Cornelius Lentulus and Gaius Claudius Marcellus were the two consuls of 49 BC Pompey Supporters they left Rome and took refuge in Sicily, and at Dyrrachium in Illyria. Lentulus went to Asia Minor to raise troops for Pompey and was present at the battle of Pharsalus (48 BC). He followed Pompey to Egypt, was arrested and put to death by order of Ptolemy. Marcellus ordered a portion of the Pompeian fleet stationed in Rhodes in 48 BC Gaius Claudius Marcellus was the brother of Marcus Claudius Marcellus, who was consul in 51 BC.
