Sallust (86-c. 35 BC), who had various public offices in Rome & later a governorship in Africa, supported the political group known as the populares. He was a friend of Caesar & an opponent of Cicero. His history of the war against Jugurtha, King of Numidia, & his account of Catiline's conspiracy in 63 BC are his only complete works to survive; they were written in the years after Caesar's assassination.
