Historical background


Pomponia

(118 BC) Lucius Pomponius

Quintus Fabius Maximus and Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus, respectively consuls in 122 and 121 BC, won a brilliant victory over the allied troops Savoyards and Arverni commissioned by the king arverne Bituitus in 121 BC that also put an end to the empire Arverne, ushered the Savoyards in orbit as the Roman client tribe and brought the "civitates" Gallic to emancipate themselves from the tutelage Arverne. The bursting of Gaul multiple entities should allow Rome to establish a lasting peace in the new province (Provincia) held from 118 BC and "divide and conquer". Bituitus taken prisoner, took part in the triumph of Quintus Fabius Maximus, his conqueror in his own carriage in sterling silver, before being executed by strangulation as was the tradition.
