The Marsi

The Marsi were an ancient people of Italy who lived in the hilly central region now known as Marsica. Although they aided Rome in its wars, they were denied the privileges of Roman citizenship. With other Roman allies, they organized a confederacy and began an uprising for independence in 90 BCE. Called the Social War, the conflict is also known as the Marsic War due to the prominence of the Marsian rebels. What became of the Marsi? More...

The Marsi, known as a warlike people (and named after the war god Mars), became allies of the Romans in 325 b. c.e. at the start of the Second Samnite War of 326-304 b. c.e. In 309 B. C.E., however, they were part of a confederacy, which included the Marrucini, Paeligni, and Vestini, in support of the Samnites against the Romans (leading to their sometimes being discussed as Samnites.) With the defeat of the Samnites in 304 b. c.e., the Marsi again became Roman allies, only to revolt again briefly two years later; at that time the Romans punished them by seizing some of their lands.

The Marsi remained loyal allies of Rome until the Social War of 90-88 b. c.e., when various tribes revolted against Rome to achieve equal rights as citizens. Since their warriors were central to rebel efforts under their leaders Quintus Pompaedius Silo and Caius Papius Mutilus (known to history by their Latin names), the Social War is referred to in some texts as the Marsic war (and in others as the Italic war). Although the Romans prevailed on the battlefield, resistance continued until the passage of a law granting citizenship to noncombatants in 90 b. c.e. Three years later citizenship was granted to all inhabitants of italy south of the Po River.
