Hallo, Margaret Olive
The precise signification of the word popularis has
long been a problem to historians of late Republican Rome.
Not only is the ancient evidence limited in scope and very
variable in nature, but the relationship between arty one
usage of popularis and its own particular context is
generally overlooked by modern scholars. The question
of who populares are is only contingent upon the question
of primary importance, namely how the word is used.
