Pasc.; Cassiod.; and on Licinius, Eutrop. 4.6.3. Licinius was assigned the province of Macedonia (Liv. 42.31.1, 32.1-5, and 48.4), instructed to dismiss the Macedonian envoys (42.36.7; App. Mac. 11.9), and assemble his forces (Liv. 42.48.4). He crossed to Apollonia and advanced into Thessaly (42.49.1-10, and 55.1-10), met a reverse at Callinicus (Polyb. 27.8.1; Liv. 42.57-62, cf. 43.4.5; Plut. Aem. 9.2; Apophth. P. Lic. 197f.; Iustin. 33.1.4; Eutrop. 4.6.3; Oros. 4.20.37; Zon. 9.22), and refused Perseus' overtures for peace (Polyb. 27.8.1-15; Liv. 42.62.3-15; Plut. Apophth. P. Lic.; App. Mac. 12; Iustin. 33.1.5-6; Eutrop. 4.6.3). After a success at Phalanna he wintered part of his army in Thessaly and part in Boeotia (Liv. 42.64-67, cf. 43.4.5; Zon. 9.22). Cassius was assigned Italy (Liv. 42.31.1, and 32.1-5), but was active in Gaul and had to be restrained by decree of the Senate from attempting to attack Macedonia through Illyria (Liv. 43.1.4-12). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Cos. 171. L. Robert recognized the name of this consul in a fragment of a decree of the Senate which affected Coronea, and is probably of about the same date (170 B.C.) as the SC de Thisbensibus (Etudes epig. et phil. 287-292; cf. P. Meloni, Perseo 263-265). See Sherk, RDGE 32-33, no. 3; and, on Thisbe, SIG(3) 646; Sherk, RDGE 26-29, no. 2. See now a recently discovered in scription of Larisa of Thessaly, in which honors are given to two associates of Eumenes II and Attalus of Pergamum, present at the time of Publius, general of the Romans, i.e., P. Licinius Crassus, Consul in Thessaly in 171, at the beginning of the war with Perseus (K. I. Gallis, Analecta A. A. 13, 2, 1980, 246-249 and 261-262). See MRR 1.416. (Broughton MRR III)
