Poppaedius Silo: Dux et auctor of the social war

 
Livy believed Quintus Poppaedius Silo to have been dux Marsorum, auctor eius rei. The Social War has produced directly contrary arguments and interpretations by modern scholars. Studies on the leading Italian generals are conspicuously absent amongst much scholarship on the Social War and on social conflict in Italy during the late second and early first centuries BCE. Among the Italian leaders, Quintus Poppaedius Silo stands out because of his political activities in 92/91 BCE and the frequency with which he is mentioned by ancient sources. This paper seeks to investigate and analyse the role of Poppaedius Silo in one of the most important conflicts in Italian history under the Roman Republic. This has not been previously investigated.
