Senate Composition

 


TABLE OF CONTENTS


Which Romans were Roman Senators in the Late Roman Republic from 49-46 BC?

The lists below only reflect the names of those members of the Senate whom history is aware of, and are a compilation [not yet complete] of information gleaned from various secondary sources. Also indicated in the list is the political affiliation--when known--of each senator and whether they were "New Men" (from families who didn't have an elected consul in their family history). Note that I haven't yet factored in any deaths that might have occurred.
