Roman General: Quintus Lutatius Catulus

Quintus Lutatius Catulus (c. 152-87 BC), Roman general, and consul with Marius, 102 BC.

The following year the united armies of Catulus and Marius defeated the Cimbri, but Catulus's part in the victory was ignored.

This led to resentment, and Catulus joined Sullar in the civil war. He was among those proscribed by Marius in 87 BC, and committed suicide.
