Chapter Summary

The settlers of the Etruscan colonies were the weakest link in the large constituency of supporters of Lucius Cornelius Sulla who were rewarded after his victory. The political importance of their presence in the region, however, must not be overlooked. Although their settlement may not have been organised very competently, it played a significant part in the history of Etruria during the late Republic. The coming of the veterans was not just a price that had to be paid to the victorious army; it was the clearest signal of an epoch-making defeat too that of the cities which had followed the Marians. Sulla's great victory was probably to have found the most direct way to compel the Etruscan to become, politically speaking, Roman.
