  • Praetor c. 156 Hispania Ulterior (Brennan 2000) Expand
    • Possibly in 156. p. 740, footnote 129. See also p173-4. (Brennan 2000)
  • Praetor 154 Hispania Ulterior (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Disturbances in Spain probably began before the calendar year 155. Obsequens (17) refers to defeats in 154 at the hands of the Lusitani. Moreover, Appian at Ib. 56 returns to the farther province after relating events in the nearer one up to 150. Wilsdorf therefore has a reasonable basis for assigning to Manilius and Piso the command in Farther Spain in 155 and 154, respectively. Appian does not distinguish the governors of the two provinces sufficiently clearly. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Defeated with heavy losses by the Lusitani (App. Ib. 56; cf. Liv. Per. 47; Obseq. 17). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Consul 148 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Fast. Cap., Degrassi 52f., 124, 466f. ([Sp. Po]stumius [Sp. f. Sp. n.] Albinus Magn., L. Calpurnius C. f. C. n. Piso [Cae]sonin.); Fast. Ant., Degrassi 160f. (Sp. Post[u]m[- - - -], L. Cal[- - - -]); Obseq. 19; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod. Postumius was probably active in Gaul, as his name appears on a milestone on the road from Genua to Cremona (ILS 5806- CIL 1 .2.624, with S. f. S. n.). Calpurnius commanded the land forces in Africa, and tried unsuccessfully to capture a number of strongholds in the territory of Carthage (App. Lib. 110, and 112; Zon. 9.29). On Postumius, see Münzer, APF 213. (Broughton MRR I)
