The quaestorship in the third and second centuries BC

Abstract:
This paper considers the evidence for the Roman magistrate of quaestor in the middle Republic, and argues for a more rigorous approach to the existing evidence. The paper demonstrates that it is a reasonable assumption that there were only 8 quaestors throughout the second century BC, until the Sullan reforms, and it is unnecessary to hypothesise an earlier increase (for which there is no evidence).
