Qui a tué Sextus Pompée ? Enquête sur les interprétations politiques d’un assassinat à l’époque triumvirale

Abstract : The murder of Sextus Pompey, in 35 B.C., raises a number of important problems. The ancient texts, which often disagree about this event, stress the imprecision around the identity of the murderer or of the true sponsor of this murder (Anthony, his legate M. Titius, or L. Munatius Plancus ?). This study tries and identifies more clearly the individual, or individuals, linked to Sextus Pompey’s death. In order to do so, it seems fundamental not only to analyse the content of the texts, but also to try and reconstruct the political exploitation of the murder, which gave birth to various versions of the event related to the evolutions of the triumvirate. Thus, this work also analyses how Sextus Pompey’s death was used as an instrument of political propaganda and how this event was deconstructed and reconstructed for political reasons.
