With the like indolence he held the praetorship, and in the same quiet and silence.
Curule aediles were instituted at the same time as the praetorship, and continued throughout the Republic.
The quaestorship might be spent in one, the praetorship and the consulship were sure to be followed by a year abroad.
No one could be Praetor without having first been Quaestor, or Consul without having held the praetorship.
The night that he was denied the praetorship he spent in play; that wherein he was to die he spent in reading.
For he rose no higher than the praetorship, but published a large and not uninteresting history.
Caius Calpurnius, having his command continued to him for a year after the expiration of his praetorship, was sent into Etruria.
