Chapter Summary

In Italy, as well as in Asia Minor, local elites were a crucial aspect of the balance of the empire. The nearly fifteen years between the outbreak of the Social War and the death of Lucius Cornelius Sulla presented them with numerous problems and difficult choices. The inclusion of the Italians in Roman political life was a complex process, which took several decades from the enfranchisement to be accomplished. It was not started by Sulla, but by his enemies, and namely by Cinna, who had a crucial role in the enfranchisement of the Allies. This chapter shows that Sulla's skilful management of his relations with the Italian elites played an important role in ensuring him the final victory in the conflict for supremacy in Rome.
