Is this supposed to say ‘weirdo form’ or is it an autocorrect for ‘verb form’?!
I’m guessing the smiley face is an autocorrect for 🙂
Is Cicero criticising Lucullus here? Or is the reference too vague? Would Lucullus be angry? Or would he think Cicero was talking about other commanders?
A useful summary but why no mention of the `1st Triumvirate’ with Crassus and Caesar? Although this was not a legally-sanctioned body (in contrast to the `2nd. triumvirate’) it did exercise de facto control of the Roman state whilst it held together.
The anaphora is clearly seen here but what is the effect of this? Is it to show the independence of Gnaeus Pompeius?
Cicero was biased against Sulla, this was clear since the ancient times.
the army of the ‘greatest’ general is more appropriate than ‘perfect’
