Click for a larger photo
In 122 B.C., Marcus Fulvius Flaccus and Gaius Gracchus became tribunes and proposed a number of populist reforms. Gracchus passed a law requiring the state to provide weapons and equipment for the soldiers in the Roman army. The following year Gracchus lost his bid for reelection. When his rivals planned to repeal his populist reforms, Gracchus organized a mass protest. The Senate ordered the protest suppressed by any means necessary. Gaius Gracchus and many of his followers were killed on the streets of Rome in a pitched battle with the consul Lucius Opimius, and a force of senators and equites. Later Opimius established a tribunal that condemned 3,000 of Gracchus supporters to death.
