Chapter Summary

Cicero's passage prompts more general questions about the economic and social consequences of Sullan colonisation. To discuss them in further detail, this chapter deals with the evidence we have for the colonial foundations decided by Lucius Cornelius Sulla after the Civil War. Unfortunately, it is incomparably less rich and less detailed than that for the triumviral or Augustan colonial programme. The chapter discusses the evidence for two communities that generations of scholars have wrongly viewed as Sullan colonies: Clusium and Florentia. The safely attested settlements, on the contrary, are mostly concentrated in Campania and in Etruria, and the impression that Sulla's efforts were purposefully focused on these very areas is no doubt correct. The impact of Sullan colonisation on the two regions, however, was quite different.
