Abstract

Lucius Calpurnius Piso’s proconsulate in Macedonia (57-55 BCE) is well known to be part of the view of Cicero. This paper seeks to find out if the action of Piso reflects the triumviral power, within the framework of a mos maiorum of a new regime, in order to illuminate the decline narrative and the distorted perspective used by Cicero.

Keywords

Lucius Cornelius Piso, First Triumvirate, mos mairoum, decline narratives, Cicero
