10 – Gaius Cassius Longinus
Gaius Cassius Longinus was a famous traitor during the Great Roman Civil War and was known to have always hated tyrants. During that conflict, Cassius chose to side with Optimates and Pompey because of his fear that Julius Caesar would eventually turn to a dictator. After Pompey’s defeat in battle, he escaped for Hellespont but was arrested by Caesar. Despite being acquitted for his betrayal, he still plotted an assassination to the newly held dictator along with Brutus. After two years, he killed himself.
