-------------------------------------------------------------
The nomination of Cicero as governor obliged the orator to a long travel from Rome to Cilicia between april and august 51 B.C. Cicero had to organise a long journey to Asia Minor on road and sea, with the obsession to avoid a prorogation in his province. He travelled slowly, because of his need to develop social relations with his friends in Italy and Greece. The proconsul continued in his letters to be very interested in roman political life and developed a new interest to be considered as a good promagistrate by the inhabitants of his province, but did not consider geographical characteristics or insights during this journey.
