Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with a discussion of Caesar's first consulship. It then discusses Clodius' tribunate and Cicero's exile. Clodius drew up a bill about Cicero himself, which assumed that he was already a self-condemned exile and consequently specified the terms of his exile and the modalities of the confiscation of his property. The exile imposed by Clodius was a capital penalty: Cicero lost his status as a senator and Roman citizen, and the property that maintained his position in society.
