A masterpiece of dramatic narrative.

Sallust (86-c.35 B.C.), who had various public offices in Rome and later a governorship in Africa, supported the political group known as the populares. He was a friend of Caesar and an opponent of Cicero. His history of the war against Jugurtha, King of Numidia, and his account of Catiline's conspiracy in 63 B.C. are his only complete works to survive; they were written in the years after Caesar's assassination.
