    The Republican Ludi Saeculares as a Cult of the Valerian Gens.Susan Bilynskyj Dunning - 2020 - História 69 (2):208-236.
    Republican sacrifices held at the Tarentum in the Campus Martius constitute part of the lineage of the imperial ludi saeculares. Through an investigation of fragmentary and sometimes corrupt historical texts pertaining to the ludi saeculares, especially Verrius Flaccus, Varro, Valerius Antias, Valerius Maximus, Zosimus, and Plutarch, this article demonstrates that the Tarentum sacrifices were originally called ludi Tarentini, and were a cult of the Valerian gens that came under civic supervision in 249 bce. These ludi Tarentini were not associated with (...)

    Non-Spartans in the Lakedaimonian Army: The Evidence From Laconia.Nicolette Pavlides - 2020 - História 69 (2):154-184.
    It is widely attested that the perioikoi and helots were an important component of the Lakedaimonian army and fought alongside the Spartans especially during the Persian and Peloponnesian Wars. The current study offers a new perspective on the importance of non-Spartans in the Lakedaimonian army by examining the weapon dedications from Laconian sanctuaries and by reviewing the location and importance of forts and fortifications near or at perioikic poleis. It argues that on the basis of finds from Laconian sanctuaries and (...)

    Making the List: Coercion, Co-Operation, and Competition in the Hoplite Katalogos.Jonathan Reeves - 2020 - História 69 (2):128-153.
    In this article, I demonstrate that recruitment of hoplites under the katalogos system was not defined simply by the state's capacity to coerce citizens into taking up arms; rather, publication of the names of citizens chosen for military service is a practice that reflects the complementary ethics of egoistic, rivalrous competition and communitarian duty that animated the democratic polis.

  4. The Proposed Election Reforms of Asinius Gallus.Susan Satterfield - 2020 - História 69 (2):237-257.
    In 16 CE, Asinius Gallus proposed election reforms. Tacitus views these reforms, like many of Gallus' actions, as a hostile move against the emperor. In this paper, I argue that they were not proposed in opposition to Tiberius, but instead were a calculated compromise aimed at meeting the Senate's desire for more praetors to share the duties of legionary command, while also maintaining the limit of twelve praetors per year that Tiberius had established in the elections of 14 CE. As (...)

    Praetor Maximus – Eine Vage Formulierungaus den Anfangsjahren der Römischen Republik: Praetor Maximus – a Vague Term From the Beginnings of the Roman Republic.Werner Tietz - 2020 - História 69 (2):185-207.
    This article investigates the meaning and the historical implications of the term praetor maximus quoted by Livy from an early republican law. In modern scholarship it has mostly been interpreted as a technical term for the supreme magistrate. Instead of taking praetor maximus as an official title, though, I suggest to follow Mommsen who understands the term as a generic expression. Going further from this general idea and given the meticulous observance of rituals in Roman religion, the law seems to (...)
