The first triumvirate, the second triumvirate, Cicero, Catiline and his conspiracy, Cleopatra, and Mark Antony The first triumvirate was an alliance between Caesar, Marcus Crassus, and Pompeius was unofficial, unlike the. Catiline's war ; The Jugurthine war ; Histories by Sallust (); The Jugurthine War ; The conspiracy of Catiline by Sallust (Book); The conspirators; or, The case of Catiline, as collected from the best historians, impartially examin'd; with respect to his declared and convert abettors; and the artifices used to skreen the conspirators from punishment by Thomas Gordon ().

    With little assistance from neighboring Italians, or the Allobreges, the plot was doomed to failure. In 62 BC, a force under M. Petreius destroyed the armed mob of Catiline and Manlius, killing Catiline in the process, and the conspiracy was over. Cicero was hailed as the 'father of his country' for saving Rome from another rebellion. Despite a significant disadvantage, Catiline knows he has no choice but to fight. After a brave display by his men, Catiline, on the verge of defeat, rushes to the front and the Romans slaughter him. In the second part of the book, Sallust details the Jugurthine War. Jugurtha is a brave, African soldier adopted as a son by the Numidian King.

    Catiline fellin a battle with the consular army. The vivid portrayal of Cati-line given by his ambitious enemy Cicero (orations against Cati-line) and the historian Sallust gave rise in modern times to aromantic view of Catiline and an exaggerated notion of the im-portance of his conspiracy. The failure of the conspiracy in Rome was a massive blow to Catiline. Upon hearing of the death of Publius Cornelius Lentulus Sura and the others, many men deserted his army, reducing the size from ab to a mere 3, He and his ill-equipped army began to march towards Gaul and then back towards Rome several times in vain attempts to avoid a battle.
