Roman Republic, C. Vibius Varus, 42 B.C.
In October 42 B.C. the Republican army was defeated at Philippi by the legions Antony and Octavian. Cassius and Brutus committed suicide. Brutus' body was brought to Antonius' camp, where he cast his purple paludamentum over his dead body and ordered an honorable funeral for his erstwhile comrade. The Republican cause was crushed; Rome rested in the hands of the Second Triumvirate.
