But Tiberius’s revelation of the willingness of crowds of Roman voters to override the wishes and opposition of the ruling elite, and pass into law popular measures proposed by determined reformers, established the key method whereby major issues of public policy were to be addressed during the subsequent decades of Roman history.

Caius proposed to give to these equestrians an important role in the governance of the state, by transferring to them the duty or privilege of serving as jurors on the permanent tribunals set up to police the governance of the Roman state. 27 15 R O M E A N D I TA LY I N T H E S E C O N D C E N T U RY BCE Third, there were the allies. Caius recognized that his brother’s land law had not paid proper (if any) attention to the needs and interests of the allied communities, and that the relations between the allies and Rome needed to be reformed.
Interestingly, Caius’s reforms were not immediately undone, any more than Tiberius’s had been, perhaps indicating that the optimates were not confident of finding legislative majorities for repeal. 41 In spite of the law of 121 that provoked Caius’s downfall, the Roman colony at Carthage was not in fact eliminated, and most of Caius’s other laws remained in effect. His reform of the jury courts, handing them over to the equestrian class, remained a bone of contention in Roman politics for 50 years; the issue of popular sovereignty as against governance by the Senate was the leitmotif of late Republican politics; and the matters of allied discontent and military recruitment and efficiency remained to be dealt with in subsequent decades.
