Nicely painted but poor Pompey is looking rather dumpy. . .

Was there a year when Pompey was a Consul with no other Consul?

52 BC

The Senate balked at the idea of having Pompeius as Dictator. They appointed him sole Consul, which still left him liable for prosecution once he was out of office.

Was surprised to find it here, I'm the guy who has painted him. Thanks for linking my blog.

@Quadratus – yes, the figure is looking a but dumpy indeed but looking at his famous bust portrait:

I can't imagine he was a slim guy.

How about some Lictors, Alex? Pompey ought to qualify for a couple dozen! ;-)

Simon, that's for sure, he needs some! Not sure about a dozen, I'm not that productive as you are :)

Thanks, Armand!

He has to give some thought to his status, Alex. He is a Consul; go for the fulldozen! ;-) Simon
