Makers of Rome, Nine Lives: Coriolanus, Fabius Maximus, Macellus, Cato the Elder, Tiberius Gracchus, Gaius Gracchus, Sertorius, Brutus, Mark Antony
These nine biographies illuminate the careers, personalities and military campaigns of some of Rome’s greatest statesmen, whose lives span the earliest days of the Republic to the establishment of the Empire. Selected from Plutarch’s Roman Lives, they include prominent figures who achieved fame for their pivotal roles in Roman history, such as soldierly Marcellus, eloquent Cato and cautious Fabius. Here too are vivid portraits of ambitious, hot-tempered Coriolanus; objective, principled Brutus and open-hearted Mark Anthony, who would later be brought to life by Shakespeare. In recounting the lives of these great leaders, Plutarch also explores the problems of statecraft and power and illustrates the Roman people’s genius for political compromise, which led to their mastery of the ancient world.

Ian Scott-Kilvert continues his edition of Plutarch's Lives with Nine Romans, beginning of course with Romulus. I think it interesting that this volume includes Marc Antony, a man perhaps more associated (Spoiler Alert!!) with the fall of the Roman Republic, but this way we have to buy that volume as well, if we're dealing with Brutus and Big Julie.
