About this deal

Caesar remained in the province until June before setting out for Rome, arriving in October of the same year, and celebrated an unseemly triumph over fellow Romans. The opposition again unified against their heavy-handed political tactics – though not against Caesar's activities in Gaul [121] – and defeated the allies in the elections of that year. After occupying Rome, he engineered this first appointment, largely to hold elections; after 11 days he resigned. Deeply indebted from his campaigns for the praetorship and for the pontificate, Caesar required military victory beyond the normal provincial extortion to pay them off.

Claiming to have completed the peninsula's conquest, he made for home after having been hailed imperator. When I was 5 years old, I knew that I felt differently than the people around me, but I didn’t have the words.He then served at the Siege of Mytilene where he won the civic crown for saving the life of a fellow citizen in battle. Just days after his assumption of the life dictatorship, he publicly rejected a diadem from Antony at celebrations for the Lupercalia. Similarly extraordinary were a number of symbolic honours which saw Caesar's image put onto Roman coinage – the first for a living Roman – with special rights to wear royal dress, sit atop a golden chair in the Senate, and have his statues erected in public temples. By this point he had started preparations for war on the Parthians to avenge Crassus' death at Carrhae in 53 BC, with wide-ranging objectives that would take him into Dacia for three or more years.

The soldiers were each given 24,000 sesterces (a lifetime's worth of pay); further games and celebrations were put on for the plebs. Caesar rose to become one of the most powerful politicians in the Roman Republic through a string of military victories in the Gallic Wars, completed by 51 BC, which greatly extended Roman territory. In 63 BC, Caesar stood for the praetorship and also for the post of pontifex maximus, [41] who was the head of the College of Pontiffs and the highest ranking state religious official. graffiti at Marcus Brutus' praetorian seat in the forum challenging him as asleep, corrupt, or not a true descendant of the Lucius Brutus who founded the republic. Caesar stayed in Italy to celebrate four triumphs in late September, supposedly over four foreign enemies: Gaul, Egypt, Pharnaces (Asia), and Juba (Africa).Cato may have been responsible for the law requiring declarations of candidacy in person within the pomerium. The earlier sources assert that he advocated life imprisonment without trial; the later sources assert he instead wanted the conspirators imprisoned pending trial. The date decided upon by the conspirators was 15 March, the Ides of March, three days before Caesar intended to leave for his Parthian campaign.
