Аграрная реформа Гая Гракха и италийские союзники

С. 372-390.

In this article the author deals with the possible participation of Italian allies in land distributions organized by the land commission chaired by Gaius Gracchus. Based on the analysis of a number of epigraphic data and literary sources, including the results of a comparative analysis of parallel biographies of Cleomenes and Gaius Gracchus by Plutarch, it is demonstrated that Italians might have participated in the settlements of “roadside tenants” as individual settlers (viritim) and residents of the Iunonia colony. Thus, the political program of Gaius Gracchus took into account the interests of the Italians and was aimed at providing a comprehensive solution to the problems of the Roman and Italic rural population.
