This study explores the various influences that inform and shape our understanding of the early Roman Republic. It is common knowledge that the demise of the Roman Republic in its last one hundred years was not only the occasion for the shaping of the traditional narrative for the much earlier Republic, but that it was, in addition, the source of both the discourse and the tone of that history as we have inherited it from the Romans.
