Historical background


POBLICIA

(118 BC)

The gens Poblicia is a plebeian family of Rome. Quintus Fabius Maximus and Cnæus Domitius Ahenobarbus, consuls in 122 and 121 BC, won a brilliant victory over the allied troops of the Allobroges and the Arvernes, commanded by the Arverne king, Bituit in 121 BC. This victory also puts an end to the Arverne empire, brings the Allobroges into the Roman orbit as a client tribe and brings the Gallic "civitates" to emancipate themselves from Arverne tutelage. The bursting of Gaul into multiple entities should allow Rome to establish a lasting peace in the new province (Provincia) organized from 118 BC, but also to "divide to reign better". Bituit, taken prisoner, participates in the triumph of Quintus Fabius Maximus, his conqueror, in his own solid silver chariot, before being executed by strangulation, as tradition would have it..
