I seem to recall a certain Q. Lucretius Ofella who was an officer under L. Sulla during the civil war. He was in charge of the siege of a major city, Praeneste if I recall correctly, and later tried to run for consul against Sulla's wishes, whereupon Sulla had him killed.
Let me know if you'd like me to rummage in my old notes to find a source or two for the chap.

- No need to rummage, there is a wikipedia article about him http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quintus_Lucretius_Ofella Many thanks! Agricola 06:09, 27 July 2007 (CEST)
I notice that currently where two or more sources are cited as authority for a single statement, each source is given in a separate footnote. This results in some sentences being followed by several footnotes. In my experience this is not standard academic practice, at least in the fields of history and archaeology. May I suggest that all the sources for a given statement be cited together in the same footnote, separated by semi-colons?
