Lucius Junius Brutus Damasippus
Lucius Junius Brutus Damasippus was a Roman commander during Sulla's civil wars. When Pompey rebelled, Brutus was one of the three commanders sent against him. In an unnamed battle, the first of Pompey’s career, Brutus was defeated. When Sullan forces defeated their opponents, Brutus massacred many neutral senators to prevent them from welcoming Sulla. In the Second battle of Clusium, Brutus and one of the last remaining Marian forces were heavily defeated. The defeated Marian commanders went to the Samnites, with whom they marched on Rome, but were defeated outside its gates by forces led by Sulla and Crassus.
