Marcus Celius, during the civil war of Caesar and Pompey, allied himself with the first. For his services he was awarded the praetor’s office.

On his office, he prposed the law that would discontinue citizens’ debts; it was rejected by the Senate. The embittered Celius in revenge joined the rebellion against Caesar. It is worth mentioning the fact that Titus Annius Milo also took part in the rebellion. Eventually, Celius was killed during the fight. That’s how his turbulent history ended.
