SANTALUCIA, Bernardo. Osservazioni su Cicero II in Verrem 1.155-157. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.825-832. ISSN 2411-7870.

The tribune Q. Opimius, whose judicial events are described by Cicero in the actio secunda in Verrem (§§ 155-157), was probably tried for using intercessio against a protection clause of Sulla's law that forbade the tribunes to perform curule magistracies. The trial took place in the form of a iudicium recuperatorium for a fine. Through Cicero's testimony, we can see how this kind of trial assumed in the last republican age a criminal character, influenced by quaestiones.
