    Horace (Epod. –26), in fact, mentions in the same breath Rome’s conquest of Carthage and the much later victory over Jugurtha to illustrate triumphs produced on the continent of Africa. Still another factor that may have influenced S.’s choice is that he and his generation will have vividly recalled the xxxviii.   From Book 64 [] Adherbal, attacked by Jugurtha and besieged in the town of Cirtha was killed in violation of a senatorial decree. [] Because of this, war was declared upon Jugurtha, and consul Calpurnius Bestia, who was sent out to conduct this war, concluded a treaty with Jugurtha, without being ordered to do so by the people or the Senate.

    the Romans in the war with Numantia, he gave Jugurtha command of the Numidians whom he sent to Spain, hoping that he would easily fall a victim either to a desire to display his valour or to the ruthless foe. 3. But the result was not at all what he had expected; 4. for Jugurtha, who had an active and keen intellect, soon became acquainted with. “The Conspiracy of Catiline” tells the dramatic story of renegade senator Lucius Catiline’s attempt to seize power in Rome during the waning days of the republic. “The War of Jugurtha” recounts the rise and ultimate destruction of the headstrong Numidian king Jugurtha, who waged an insurgent war against Rome from to s:

    Later in Rome he laid out famous gardens, retired from public life, and wrote a monograph on Catiline's conspiracy and one on the war with Jugurtha (both extant), and a history of Rome 78–67 BCE (little survives). Though biased, Sallust's extant work is valuable. His "Jugurthine War" relates the war in Numidia c. B.C., of which Rome was the victor. It is most valued for his introduction, in which Sallust gives commentary on the moral decay and discord of the Roman political scene, and of his longing for the forgotten ideals of Rome.

Sallust is writing at the end of his life, seemingly to help him understand his own fate. He's contemplating his own trajectory through the lens of Cataline and Jugurtha.

Understanding this gives a poignancy to Sallust's writing that is roiling with passion and sadness underneath the clipped stoicism of the surface prose/5(19).

In Sallust’s second monograph, Bellum Jugurthinum (41–40 bc; The Jugurthine War), he explored in greater detail the origins of party struggles that arose in Rome when war broke out against Jugurtha, the king of Numidia, who rebelled against Rome at. p Sallust The War With Jugurtha 1 Without reason do mankind complain of their nature, on the ground that it is weak and of short duration and ruled rather by chance than by virtue.

2 For reflection would show on the contrary that nothing is greater or more excellent, and that nature has more often found diligence lacking in men than strength or endurance in itself. Sallust's book documents two important historical events in the Roman Empire, the Jurgatine War and the Conspiracy of Catiline.

They occur at a time the Romans had acquired great comfort in their lives. Sallust describes this comfort as having a detrimental effect on Roman society with money more important than glory.

Fearing his son’s fame, Micipsa gave Jugurtha command of the Numidian contingent sent to aid Rome in the siege of Spanish Numantia ( bc), in the hopes that he would get killed.

Instead, Jugurtha excelled at the art of war, leading his men ably in battle and becoming popular with the Roman troops. Sallust writes as a moral historian.

He sees Rome's grandeur as the "good old days" of the Republic which have been ruined by leisure and luxury. It is refreshing to a modern reader interested in history to find history that does not purport merely to set out dry, objective facts, but to record history to some end/5(59).
