A significant event that year

Marcus Aemilius Lepidus (120 BC � 77 BC), was a Roman statesman. He was the father of the triumvir Marcus Aemilius Lepidus and of the consul of 50 BC Lucius Aemilius Lepidus Paullus.

He gained wealth and power by politically allying himself with Lucius Cornelius Sulla, but once the dictator had resigned in 79 BC, Lepidus attempted to undermine the Sullan constitution. He was elected consul for the year 78 BC with the support of Pompey[1], and tried to stop Sulla from being buried in the Campus Martius. However, Pompey turned against his candidate and used his influence to ensure that the full funeral and burial went ahead.

Lepidus passed several resolutions during his term that firmly placed him in the camp of the populares. He offered to restore land that had been taken by Sulla to the Italians. This put him at odds with his fellow consul, Quintus Lutatius Catulus. The two factions came so close to war that the senate made them swear not to fight, and sent Lepidus to administer the province of Transalpine Gaul.The terms of their oath did not prevent Lepidus from returning the nextyear with an army, so he agreed to it. Before he left, he offered thoseSulla had sent into exile a chance to return, a move which alarmed theSenate.[2]They correctly judged that he was attempting to gather his alliesaround him to start a civil war. Lepidus was recalled from hisprovince, but brought his army with him back to Rome, where he wasdefeated by Catulus in a pitched battle on the Campus Martius.[3] Forced into exile in Sardinia, he died soon afterwards.

His fellow rebel, Marcus Junius Brutus the Elder, the father of Caesar's famous murderer of the same name, remained at Mutina, in Gaul.Pompey marched to destroy him, but Brutus surrendered before a battlehad to be fought. Brutus was soon killed by one of Pompey's men, namedGeminius.
