From the Paper:"At the time of Caesar's birth, Carus Marius was the leading man in Rome, having saved the Roman Republic several years before by defeating two German tribes, the Teutones and the Cimbri. Caesar was related to Marius through the marriage of Marius and a sister of Caesar's father. When Caesar was very young, Marius had lost much of his earlier popularity, and eventually left Rome to travel in Greece and Asia Minor, hoping for some new command (Jiminez, 2000). However, still had some influence, and in 92 BC Caesar's father was elected as praetor, or a magistrate whose most important function was the administration of justice. In 84 BC Caesar's father died suddenly, and at sixteen years old, Caesar was the head of the family. Between 81 BC and 79 BC, Caesar served in Asia Minor on the personal staff of Marcus Minucius Thermus, who was praetor in Asia Minor. Mithridates of Pontus attacked Asia Minor a second time, while Caesar was serving there, and entirely on his own, Caesar raised a small army and defended some towns, giving the Roman commander time to organize an army and attack Mithridates in Pontus. Caesar returned to Rome in 73 BC, as a war hero, and thus began his career as a general and politician. "
