TriviaEdit

  • Hieronymous may have possessed Roman citizenship if he was a Lanista in the Roman Republic and if so, may have come from one of the Greek communities in Magna Graecia (southern Italy) or the island of Sicilia. The Social War of 91-88 BCE occurred two sixteen years prior to the Third Servile War. In the aftermath of the former, virtually all Socii (allied states) in Italy, be they of Latin, Samnite, Etruscan or Greek ethnicity, were universally granted Roman citizenship and suffrage.
