... Scaurus, Marcus , first-century bce Roman aristocrat; Pompey's quaestor during the annexation of Syria and conquest of Judea, also Pompey's brother-in-law and husband of Pompey's (divorced) third wife; first Roman governor of Syria. According to Josephus ( Jewish Antiquities 14.29–33; The Jewish War 1.127–130), while Pompey was still in Armenia campaigning against Tigranes he sent Scaurus ahead to Syria. That would place Scaurus's mission no later than 66 bce , but the rest of Josephus's account seems to indicate that it is instead to be...

...such writing naturally goes back to an early period. More elaborate apologetic or propagandist autobiography found a natural home in Rome: examples were the three books of Marcus Aemilius Scaurus, the five or more of Publius Rutilius Rufus, and Quintus Lutatius Catulus’ single book On his Consulship and his Achievements . The twenty-two books of Sulla ’s memoirs owed something to the Greek precedent of Aratus. Caesar ’s Commentaries presented a particularly nuanced form of self-projection; Cicero too wrote about his own career and achievement both in...

...divide the work into distinct panels, and implied comparisons—Gaius Memmius and Marius, Metellus and Marius, Marius and Sulla—further plot the changes in political and military style. For sources Sallust perhaps used a general history and the autobiographies of Marcus Aemilius Scaurus, Publius Rutilius Rufus, and Sulla; some geographical notions, but not much more, may derive from Posidonius.
