Pompey put the various nations that had belonged to the Seleucidæ under kings or chiefs of their own. In like manner he confirmed the four chiefs of the Galatians in Asia, who had coöperated with him in the Mithridatic war, in their tetrarchies. Not long afterward they all came gradually under the Roman rule, mostly in the time of Augustus. Pompey now put Scaurus, who had been his quæstor in the war, in charge of Syria, and the Senate afterward appointed Marcius Phi

As Pompey did not think it best to B.C. 63 fight the Parthians without a decree of the Senate, he sent mediators to compose their differences. Y.R. 689 While Pompey was about this business Mithridates B.C. 65 had completed his circuit of the Euxine and occupied Panticapæum, a Ewas persuaded to pardon his son, but the latter, still fearing his father's anger, and knowing that the army shrank from the expedition, went by night to the leading Roman deserters who were encamped very near the king, and by representing to B.C. 63 them in its true light, and as they well knew it, the danger of their advancing against Italy, and by making them many promises if they would refuse to go, induced them to desert from his father.

Shortly after this, word was received that the slaves, some of the remnants of the same conspiracy, were about to occupy Praeneste.This town (now Palestrina), about twenty-five miles east of Rome, was strongly situated and therefore frequently a military objective.

The first and second conspiracies of Catiline, as well as his notorious character, could have left no doubt that his aims were treasonable. Antonius had combined with him for mutual support in securing election by illegal means, and was himself a weak and unprincipled man.
