 Social War (91–88 BC) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Roman conquest of Italy between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC resulted in a collection of alliances between Rome and the cities and communities of Italy, on more or less favorable terms depending on whether a given city had voluntarily allied with Rome or been defeated in war.
One of the two separate theatres of war was assigned to each of the consuls of 90 B.C. In the north the consul Publius Rutilius Lupus was advised by Marius and Pompeius Strabo; in the south the consul Lucius Julius Caesar had Lucius Cornelius Sulla and Titus Didius.
By 88 BC the war was largely over except for the Samnites (the old rivals of Rome) who still held out.
