Comp. 3d CHAPTER THREE Caesar as a Politician Erich S. Gruen In the year 63 BC Julius Caesar achieved an astounding political victory. He was a mere thirty-seven years old, not yet even of praetorian rank.

Iul. 5). It is probably not coincidental that Pompey took that same line publicly in these years and then implemented the change as consul in 70 (Sall. Hist. 23 Maur. 34 McGushin; Cic. Verr. 126). Certainly in 67, when the tribune A.
