Fecha, modalidades y legado de la abdicación de la dictadura de Sila. Un estudio de la política siliana

Frederik J. VERVAET

Resumen


La Paradójica dictatura legibus scribundis et rei publicae constituendae de Sila ha sido siempre recordada como objeto de controversia, entre los antiguos (visto de forma exhaustiva por Eckert 2016) y modernos historiadores de Roma. Uno de los mayores problemas que divide a los estudiosos es el del tempus legitimum de su dictadora y, en particular, el momento aproximado de su abdicación, que va desde la primera mitad del 81 al verano del 79. Este texto revisa la cuestión e intenta una resolución estableciendo una revaluación de las fuentes. Como resultado, esta investigación arroja una nueva luz sobre la abdicación de Sila. Sus razones y, por último, pero no menos importante, las ramificaciones desde el último Triunvirato a la temprana época de Augusto. Al final de este studio un breve epílogo revisa el tiempo y las circunstancias de la ejecución de Q. Lucrecio Ofela y considera la cuestión de los motivos profesados por Sila.

Palabras clave
