After the war the victorious Sulla made himself dictator of the republic.

- Sulla's civil war

Crassus began his public career as a military commander under Lucius Cornelius Sulla during his civil war.

- Marcus Licinius Crassus

Following Sulla's assumption of the dictatorship, Crassus amassed an enormous fortune through real estate speculation.

- Marcus Licinius Crassus

As soon as he had set foot in Italy, the outlawed nobles and old Sullan supporters who had survived the Marian-Cinna regime flocked to his banner. The most prominent among them were Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius, Marcus Licinius Crassus, and Lucius Marcius Philippus. Metellus and Crassus did so at the head of their own independently-raised armies.

- Sulla's civil war

Following Sulla's civil war, Lucius Cornelius Sulla had the dictatorship revived.

- Roman dictator

One version of the supposed First Catilinarian conspiracy c. 65 BC (which itself is now held in modern scholarship to be fictitious) related by Suetonius would have had the creation of a dictatorship led by Marcus Licinius Crassus with Julius Caesar as magister equitum.
