Roman Republic, Quintus Pompeius Rufus, c. 54 B.C., Ancient Counterfeit
|Sulla|, |Roman| |Republic,| |Quintus| |Pompeius| |Rufus,| |c.| |54| |B.C.,| |Ancient| |Counterfeit|, Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix, commonly known as Sulla, was one of the great men of Roman history. He used his power as dictator to reform the Roman constitution, with the intent to balance power between the oligarchy of Senate (optimates) and the populism of the tribunes (populares). He then stunned the Roman World (and posterity) by resigning the dictatorship, restoring normal constitutional government, and after his second Consulship, retiring to private life. Ultimately his reforms were inadequate and the republic was made an empire.
