  Lucius Cornelius Sulla - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sulla was born into an impoverished branch of the Cornelii gens, or family, of aristocratic patrician stock but without influence in the city.
Meanwhile, Sulla defeated Mithridates in the East and in 86 BC captured Athens and then defeated Archelaus at the Chaeronea, (employing the first known use of strategic battlefield entrenchments, later copied by Julius Caesar) and again in 85 BC at the Orchomenus; battles that confimed his status as a general of the first rank.
