Anyone else fascinated by The later Roman Republic? [View all]

More than any other place and time period, the history of Rome from the end of the 3rd Punic War to the assassination of Julius Caesar just fascinates me to no end. There seems to be something about a politically decadent republic that has come to rule an empire that causes it to produce a lot of colorful historical figures; Scipio Africanus, The Gracchus brothers, Gaius Marius, Lucius Sulla, Lucullus, Marcus Livius Drusus, Pompey, Cicero, Marcus Crassus, Sergius Catalina, Clodius Pulcher, and Julius Caesar; among others.
