Reconstruction of image of dictator Sulla

Reconstruction of the image of Sulla
Reconstruction of Sulla's image

An attempt to reconstruct the image of dictator Lucius Cornelius Sulla based on a bust from Munich. He was a life appointed dictator, and his rule was the time of persecution of political opponents – mainly supporters of Gaius Marius who took power in Rome, in the absence of Sulla. Sulla returned to Rome and took over the full power with the help of his army.

It is believed that during his three-year dictatorship nearly 3, 000 people were killed. However, we should not forget about his contribution to the construction of Rome’s power and victorious campaigns during bellum sociale or Pontus.
