My defenses against Sulla are not nearly enough, I must flee the city!
Scene 10: Marius succumbed to pleurisy, a form of pneumonia just two years later, while Cinna was killed in combat. However, the Pro-Marian party prolonged the civil war without them, but were eventually crushed by Sulla's armies. Sulla then pronounced himself dictator, which was technically constitutional.
Scene 11: Sulla transformed the Republic into his ideal form of government, including tax immunities and filling the Senate with yes men. He also posted a list of citizens that would be slaughtered, beaten or stolen from every day.
Final Scene: Narrator: Sulla retired from his position in 81 BCE, but returned to serve on consul until 80 BCE, when he retired for good. In 78 BCE, he had a hemorrhage and died the next morning, his final words being “No friend ever served me, and no enemy ever wronged me, whom I have not repaid in full.” While Sulla strongly defended Rome and its interests, his exploits were far too cruel to be considered a good dictator. Although he wanted to repair the fragile Roman republic, he only seized control and led a reign of terror.
