But he dropped the project after discovering its practical difficulties, and gained thereby his nickname of Sapiens. The con- stitution imposed on each conquered region, by the sena- torial commission which drew up the lex provinciie after its annexation, was often wisely designed and reasonable. They could not see things in the same light when there was a call for troops to keep back Pseonian or lUyrian raids on Upper Macedon, or Lusitanian raids on Baetica. The earnest doctrinaire, all in a hurry and perfectly regardless of ancestral landmarks, was as incomprehensible as he was distasteful to the average Roman mind. Externally the question arises whether the sporadic and ill-compacted empire built up in the last hundred years shall endure, or whether it shall be swept away by the brute force of the Cimbri and Teutons, or carved in two by Mithradates.

Marius narrowly escaped capture and death on several occasions and eventually found safety with his veterans in Africa. The poorer and wilder maritime races took to piracy en masse, and almost strangled commerce. The Numidian cavalry scattered the Romans into small detachments and soon had control of the battle field. Tiberius drew up an equitable treaty, which was sworn to by both sides, and the army was allowed to depart.

When war broke out between the two men as a result, Antony was defeated, and he and Cleopatra fled to Egypt, where they committed suicide A bust of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, circa 25—24 BCE 4. She was still a self-supporting agricultural community, feeding herself on home-grown corn. The Balearic Islanders swept the western seas; the unsubdued Dalmatians, the Adriatic; the Cretans, the Aegean; the Pamphylians and Cilicians—the most numerous and reckless of all these bands—had almost taken possession of the waters of the Levant. Only in BC, thirty years before his birth, did the town receive full citizenship.

Hence it came to pass that though many Roman expeditions had been sent against the pirates, and several commanders had celebrated triumphs over them, the evil was not removed, and the Mediterranean did not become really safe for imperial commerce till the great naval campaign of Seven Roman statesmen of the later republic book in Seven Roman statesmen of the later republic book.

The more distant voters in remoter corners of Italy were practically out of touch with politics altogether. He returned with the decoration of a mural crown, and the esteem, as we are told, of the whole army. Only in BC, thirty years before his birth, did the town receive full citizenship.

Raids had to be punished by retaliatory expeditions. Ex- ternally the question arises whether the sporadic and ill-compacted empire built up in the last hundred years shall endure, or whether it shall be swept away by the brute force of the Cimbri and Teutons, or carved in two by Mithradates.

The Senate prorogued Metellus' command in Numidia, [54] thereby preventing Marius from assuming command. But in Rome such a figure was an exception; the stolid conservatism, the reverence for mos majorum, the dislike for abstract political speculation which marked the race, were against the development of such a frame of mind.

Sicily and Sardinia were close at hand, in ready and constant communication with the city. Reading of nonfiction is useful for self-development. Due to this genre reader can find out a lot of new and interesting nuances about the thing which he is excited about. The two problems which had forced themselves to the front needed solution.

The senators were left with only one constitutional response — to threaten prosecution after Tiberius's term as a tribune ended. The very blood of the people was getting largely diluted with a foreign strain, owing to the whole- sale manumission of slaves.

He had at first no constitutional reforms in his head, but merely economic ones. With this broad coalition of supporters, Gaius held his office for two years and had much of his prepared legislation passed.

So for instance, Aurelianthough acceding to the throne by usurpation, was the sole and undisputed monarch between andand thus was a legitimate emperor. The Romans would not keep up a permanent national fleet, both because it was expensive, and because they themselves disliked the sea.

If farming is really paying, it suffers less than might be expected from a protracted war, unless indeed that war is waged within the country-side itself. The third great responsibility which the Romans assumed, when they annexed great and remote provinces, was that of protecting the civilized world from the outer barbarian.

They could not see things in the same light when there was a call for troops to keep back Pseonian or Illyrian raids on Upper Macedon, or Lusitanian raids on Baetica. Under the stress of the competition of cheap foreign corn, the rural population of the regions round Rome had to displace itself, much in the same way as the rural population of nineteenth-century England.

The main mission of nonfiction is not only to introduce to the reader one or the other story but also give the accurate data and depict the actual facts in detail.

The traditional story of the kings is in large measure a transparent fiction. In the broad sweep of history, this reliance on poor men would make soldiers strongly loyal not to the Senate and people of Rome, but to their generals whom would be perceived as friends, comrades, benefactors, and patrons of soldiers.

Internally the problems of Roman history during this period are quite as interesting. But in Rome such a figure was an exception the stolid conservatism, the reverence ; for mos majorum, the dislike for abstract political specu- lation which marked the race, were against the develop- ment of such a frame of mind.

Journals, photographs, textbooks, travel books, blueprints, and diagrams are also often considered nonfictional. Forty years later the Social War reveals to us the existence of a numerous free agricultural population all over the mountain-regions of the Apennines—Samnium, Picenum, the Marsian territory, and the rest.

Of course, nonfiction genre is common in literature, films, news and TV-programs.
