Coins from 78-60 BC
After the death of Sulla, there were several attempts by populists to dismantle his constitution, first by the Consul Marcus Aemilius Lepidus, and later (successfully) by Pompeius Magnus and Crassus.

In 66 BC, the populist senator Catiline conspired to violently overthrow the government and enact populist reforms, but Cicero discovered the conspiracy and a bloody aftermath followed. The populares were discredited

As a result, Pompeius, Crassus and Julius Caesar created a private alliance known now as the First Triumvirate. With their backing, Julius Caesar was elected to the consulship in 59 BC.
