Abstract

The new inscription of the Fasti of Privernum mentions both Caesar’s dictatura perpetua in 44 BC and Lepidus’s office of magister equitum perpetuus . The epigraph allows to reconsider the thesis according to which Caesar wanted a dictatorship for life, or a Hellenistic monarchy, since perpetuus may also mean ‘in power until the end of Parthian war’.
Julius Caesar; dictator perpetuus; tyrannus; adfectatio regni; res publica
