Venning. A Chronology of the Roman Empire

Early: Cicero, concentrating on civil administration in Cilicia, has to deal with a scandal over the extortionate loans which his predecessor’s quaestor Marcus Brutus, Cato’s nephew and Cassius’ brother-in-law (later Caesar’s assassin) has been making to communities in Cyprus; he refuses Brutus’ appeal to use his authority to help enforce payment, but takes no definitive action and Brutus remains in post in Cilicia.
