MAGDELAIN, Blanche. Suasor legis, le vote du plebiscite Claudien. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.571-585. ISSN 2411-7870.
According to literary sources, Caius Flaminius was supposed to act as suasor legis in two statutes: the Claudian plebiscite and the lex Metilia. During the voting process, the Roman suasor legis used to intervene pro and in contione before the Roman people in order to support a bill. His intervention, based on eloquence and on auctoritas, was often a determining factor. The motives for the suggested steps are worthy of attention. Did Caius Flaminius indeed intervene here as a censor?
