Not his own fortune, mind you. He seems to have run through that. The curatorship and the aedileship, done in style, forced Caesar to borrow heavily. During his aedileship he also held, at his own expense (by which of course I mean at his creditors’ expense), funeral games in honor of his father’s memory, at which he displayed the most fabulous gladiatorial show Rome had yet seen. Pietas – and fun for the entire family (one must remember that in Rome public entertainments were free, for the audience at least).

In response to their decline, the Julii had preserved their patrician heritage scrupulously, leveraging their social cachet into profitable alliances with socially ambitious equestrian families. The family remained ambitious. Of Caesar’s grandfather we know nothing, save that he married a Marcia, daughter of the ancient house of the Marcii Reges, allegedly descended from the kings of Rome. This marriage produced a son and a daughter, though it is just possible that the consul of 91 bc, Sextus Julius Caesar, was our Caesar’s uncle.

First, Romans prized conformity. It was regarded as positively wicked to be different from everyone else. That was a situation crying out for invidia, the evil-eye, jealousy, hatred. In the Romans’ mentality, consensus, pure and simple, was on its own a powerful argument for the veracity of any proposition. The lone voice, by contrast, was suspicious, and potentially dangerous. Now I don’t want to push this too far. Just as we in modern societies value our commitment to individuality, we tend all of us to want to be individuals together.
