Others were tortured horrifically. 3 But his cure was worse than the disease. He made himself monarch for quite a long time, reinstating the office of “dictator,” which was originally a six-month position employed by the early Romans in times of great crisis, but one that had long fallen out of use. Technically, Sulla was “elected,” but in reality he used violence to force his way into becoming dictator for life. Yet, when he became sated with his absolute power, he had the courage to lay it down willingly—the first man, as far as I know, to have done so.

Exiles and convicts, as well as all those people who were vying with each other over some office or military command, waged large and violent cam1. 30–33), in 494 BC the plebeians, still under arms from battles against neighboring peoples, retired to the Sacred Mount in protest over their lack of rights compared to the aristocracy. A compromise was reached through the creation of the office of tribune of the people (tribunus plebis; see Glossary). 2. 34–41): during the famine of 491 BC Coriolanus argued that, in return for low grain prices, the people should relinquish their recent political gains, including the office of tribune.

At one point the people even fell into such a quarrel during a military campaign, but even so, they did not employ the weapons at their fingertips. 1 Even then there was no recourse to violence. Instead, they created a public official, called the tribune of the people, to champion their interests generally. But their primary tasks were to curb the power of the consuls, who were chosen from the Senate, and to ensure that their power within the constitution was not unlimited. From that time forward these two magistracies became ever more hostile and antagonistic toward each other, with the Senate and the people taking sides.
