Is Vercingetorix in the book you're reading?
As SPQR covers the period from the rise of the Republic to 199 CE, he is - though only briefly, as that particular rebellion against Julius wasn't the only one, and the book is as much about how Rome worked and how its people lived as it is about politicians and warfare.

Did you know that there's a hill in Rome that is composed mostly of smashed olive oil amphorae? And estimated 68 million of them, mostly shipped from Spain, all pre-dating 300 CE....

I only asked, because I love everything Celtic.
