Julius Caesar, Chapter 15: Julius Caesar praetor[62 BC]

Previous chapter
On the first day of his praetorship [62 B.C.] he [Note 1] called upon Quintus Catulus to render an account to the people touching the restoration of the Capitol, proposing a bill for turning over the commission to another [namely, Gnaeus Pompeius]. But he withdrew the measure, since he could not cope with the united opposition of the optimates, seeing that they had at once dropped their attendance on the newly elected consuls and hastily gathered in throngs, resolved on an obstinate resistance.

Note 1: he = Julius Caesar

Event: Julius Caesar praetor

Primo praeturae die Quintum Catulum de refectione Capitoli ad disquisitionem populi uocauit rogatione promulgata, qua curationem eam in alium transferebat; uerum impar optimatium conspirationi, quos relicto statim nouorum consulum officio frequentes obstinatosque ad resistendum concucurrisse cernebat, hanc quidem actionem deposuit.
