Caesar incurred considerable debts as governor of Hispania, including the bribes he employed to secure this appointment and later Proconsulships in Gaul and Illyricum. Unable to meet his creditors’ demands at the end of his term, he turned to his allies for help. Crassus paid off these debts and acted as guarantor against others in exchange for Caesar’s unflinching political support. With the vast quantities of gold he plundered from Gaul, which he was able to sell at 3,000 sesterces a pound in Italy, Caesar was able to clear all his remaining debts and, more importantly, end his reliance on Crassus.
