In the late Roman Republic, acts of wrongdoing against individuals were prosectued in private courts, while the public courts trid cases which involved harm to the community as a whole. In this book, Riggsby investigates the types of cases heard by the public courts to offer a provocative new understanding of what has been described as ""crime"" in the Roman Republic and to illuminate the inherently political nature of the Roman public courts. Through the lens of Cicero's forensic oratory, Riggsby examines the four major public offenses - bribery, murder, riot and corruption. In addition, this book investigates types of cases heard by public courts to offer understanding of what was ""crime"" in the Roman Republic.
