Historical background


(60 BC)

P. Plautius was aedile curule in 58 BC with Marcus Æmilius Scaurus and received from the Senate the authorization to register it on their common coinage. He belonged to a senatorial family since Marcus Plautius Hypsaeus had been consul in 125 BC. They gave grand games. On leaving office, Plautius obtained the praetorship in 55 and 54 BC. He was to take the consulship in 52 BC. He was one of Pompey's candidates. Publius Clodius was assassinated by Milon, an enemy of Plautius on January 18, 52 BC. Pompey was appointed sole consul to restore order and security in Rome where rival bands clashed. It was Metellus Scipio, Pompey's son-in-law, who shared the consulship. Publius Plautius Hypsaeus was pushed aside and rejected by Pompey, his old ally, before being condemned and exiled. He then disappears from history..
