Julius Caesar
Luciano Canfora, Julian Stringer
Edinburgh University Press

The Alexandrian war enabled Caesar to add an important element to his clientele: Egypt, which for a long time had been feudally subject to Pompey and his associates. Now, however, all his efforts were directed towards the rearrangement of the eastern clientele, disrupted by the death of Pompey. From Syria to Pontus this was Caesar's priority, despite urgent calls for him to return to Rome, and although he knew that Cato was reassembling the remaining Pompeian forces in Africa. The confirmation of this is in the fact that, once Alexandria was dominated, Caesar did not march against Juba but towards Syria. Caesar consolidated the old and new Syrian and Palestinian clienteles and put the entire region in order for a campaign against the Parthians.
