Drusus

Drusus, Marcus Livius. 1. Tribune of the Roman people 122 B.C. He opposed Caius Gracchus by outbidding him, especially by proposing the planting of colonies. 2. Son of the above, was also tribune, and though an opponent of the democrats, attempted to meet the Roman economic and political crisis in 93 to 92 B.C. by further agrarian reforms and foundations of colonies, as well as by proposing the enfranchisement of the Latin and Italian subjects of Rome. Probably on the latter account, he was assassinated in 91 B.C.
