While Licinius was continuing his shrewd policy of alliance with Constantine, by marrying his sister Constantia at Mediolanum (Milan) in January AD 313 and confirming Constantine's famous Edict of Milan (toleration of Christians and Constantine's status as senior Augustus), Maximinus II's forces were gathering in the east, preparing to launch an attack.

 Plutarch's Life of Lucullus
Lucullus in a short time took down the courage of these, and disciplined the others, who then first, in all probability, knew what a true commander and governor was; whereas in former times they had been courted to service, and took up arms at nobody's command, but their own wills.
Lucullus, on finding him gone, pursued, but was well pleased not to overtake him with his own forces in disorder; and he sat down near what is called the Thracian village, an admirable position for commanding all the roads and the places whence, and through which the provisions for Mithridates's camp must of necessity come.
Lucullus of necessity was forced to comply with this, or else to abandon the country to the barbarians.

 Roman Republic - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
Lucretia's husband Lucius Tarquinius Collatinus and Lucius Junius Brutus were elected as the first two consuls, the chief officers of the new Republic (Marcus Junius Brutus who later assassinated Gaius Julius Caesar claimed descent from this first Brutus).
Lucius Cornelius Sulla emerged after the Social War as the new strongman of the conservative faction in the Senate, having served under Marius in both the Jugurthine War and in the campaign against the invading Germanic tribes, being the only man within Rome who could challenge Marius himself.
Their mantle was taken up by Lucius Sergius Catilina, who ran for consul in 64 BC for the year 63 BC on the platform of a wholesale debt cancellation – essentially a redistribution of wealth.

 Appian's History of Rome: The Spanish Wars
Lucullus being greedy of fame and needing money, because he was in straitened circumstances, invaded the territory of the Vaccaei, another Celtiberian tribe, neighbors of the Arevaci, against whom war had not been declared by the Senate, nor had they ever attacked the Romans, or offended Lucullus himself.
When this was done, Lucullus introduced the rest of his army and ordered them at the sound of the trumpet to kill all the adult males of the Caucaei.
As for the gold and silver that Lucullus was after (and for the sake of which he had waged this war, thinking that all Spain abounded with gold and silver), he got nothing.
