Episode 119 - The Triumphant Return of the Consulship



The end of Spurius Oppius



It's not just Appius Claudius who finds himself in trouble after the end of the decemvirate. Spurius Oppius, another decemvir also finds himself in a spot of bother.



Publius Numatorius - tribune of the plebs, maternal uncle of Verginia, leds the cause against Spurius Oppius.



Livy has Oppius embroiled in a terrible affair involving a loyal solider of Rome while Dionysius of Halicarnassus has a much more speedy account of Spurius Oppius' ultimate fate.



It may not be surprising to hear that the rest of the decemivirs realise they need to find their way out of Rome!



The Consulship Returns



The moderate patricians Lucius Valerius Potitus and Marcus Horatius Barbatus have managed to pass a range of laws that help support stability in the City. To catch up on the action of this front, check out Episode 118. But now that the major crises have passed, Rome begins to look outwards. It turns out that Rome's neighbours have noted their preoccupation with internal politics. The time has come for Rome to take a stand.



Valerius takes a force against the Volscians and the Aequians. Horatius also takes out a force against the Sabines. We delve into the details of the strategies deployed by the Roman commanders. Both consuls and their forces make an excellent showing on the battlefield and return home with high expectations of a triumph or two.



What are the Tribunes up to?



As the year 449 BCE unfolds some of tribunes behaviour starts to garner suspicions. Is it just the case that groups of ten men now look a little shady to Romans in general? Or is there a new grab for power happening? The tribune Marcus Duilius may have some of the answers...



Things to listen out for



* A soldier scourged * The quaestores parricidii* The amazing returning booty* Some very interesting fracas about triumphs* Tribunes acting suspiciously...* A new buddy system for tribunes
