The dictatorship of L. Cornelius Sulla was a moment of profound change in the nature of the Roman res publica. This change affected Roman politics and society very broadly; one area which deserves particular attention is the nature of the political year. The annual political cycle was radically altered and the consequences were substantial, both in the effects on the nature of the citizen experience and in the implications for the way in which the magistrates and the Senate carried out their functions.
