The Twevle Caesars - page 36, Julius Caesar

[Julius Caesar's] affairs with women are commonly described as numerous and extravagant: among those of noble birth whom he is said to have seduced were Servius Sulpicius' wife Postumia; Aulus Gabinius' wife Lollia; Marcus Crassus' wife Tertulla; and even Pompey's wife Mucia. Be this how it may, both Curio the Elder and Curio the Younger reproached Pompey for having married Caesar's daughter, when it was because of Caesar ... that he divorced Mucia, mother of his three children.


Pompey the Great: "Steal my wife, will ya? I'll show you!"
