Chapter Summary

The Claros dossier is probably the most illuminating evidence for the spread of Roman patronage of Greek communities after the Mithridatic War. This practice is another strong symptom of the difficult phase the Asiatic cities went through at the beginning of the first century BC. It may be argued that it was an attempt to find a solution to the same state of tension and discontent that had persuaded many Asiatic cities to support the King. The success of this model of political relationship is probably the clearest trace of the central role which urban communities still played in Roman Asia Minor after Lucius Cornelius Sulla's reorganisation. The administrative reorganisation carried out by Sulla was still founded on the cities. The decisions taken in favour of the cities at the end of the 70s by Sulla's closest associate, Lucullus, show that their crucial role did not escape the Roman elite.
