He joined the staff of Gaius Julius Caesar in 54 BCE, and proved himself one of his most able and competent lieutenants, although his indulgant lifestyle and lack of administrative skills caused significant problems.
The forces of Marcus Antonius and Octavianus met at Actium in 31 BCE, with the result a total defeat for Antonius.

On 6 October, 69 BCE Tigranes was defeated by the Romans at Tigranakert.

 Marius and Sulla
The ensuing three years (86-84 BCE) were a period of tranquillity and Cinna, with his consular colleagues Flaccus and Carbo, restored ordered government in Italy.
He gained the co-operation of the equites and the plebs by financial reforms, and of the Senate because, unconstitutional though some of Cinna's actions might have been, he was still the leader of the legitimate government [11].
In 83 BCE, Sulla landed with 40, 000 men at Brundisium and the Roman civil wars began in earnest [20].
