This chapter examines the legislative process at three successive half-centuries, from the Gracchi (i.e., from the lex Sempronia agrarian of 133 bc) to Sulla; from Sulla (i.e., from the lex Valeria de Sulla dictator of 82 bc) to Actium (31 bc); and from Actium to Augustus' death in ad14. According to Rotondi, there were one hundred thirty laws or attempts at legislation (leges and rogations) in the first period. There were two hundred thirty-eight laws or attempted laws between Sulla becoming dictator and Augustus' victory at Actium. Then, in the forty-five years of Augustus' reign there were thirty.
