 Cicero [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Marcus Tullius Cicero was born on January 3, 106 BC and was murdered on December 7, 43 BC.
During his term as consul (the highest Roman office) in 63 BC he was responsible for unraveling and exposing the conspiracy of Catiline, which aimed at taking over the Roman state by force, and five of the conspirators were put to death without trial on Cicero's orders.
This left him open to attacks by his enemies, and in January of 58 BC one of them, the tribune Clodius (a follower of Caesar's), proposed a law to be applied retroactively stating that anyone who killed a Roman citizen without trial would be stripped of their citizenship and forced into exile.

 Numidia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At the time of the Second Punic War the eastern tribes took the side of the Romans whereas the Massaesyli supported the Carthaginians.
At the end of the war the victorious Romans gave all of Numidia to Massinissa (died 148 BCE) of the Massaesyli, whose territory extended from Mauretania to the boundary of the Carthaginian territory, and also southeast as far as Cyrenaica, so that Numidia entirely surrounded Carthage (Appian, Punica, 106) except towards the sea.
Soon afterwards, in 25 BCE, Juba was transferred to the throne of Mauretania, and Numidia was divided between Mauretania and the province of Africa Nova.
