Calpurnio); Chr. 354 (Pisone et Lenas); Fast. Hyd. (Baenate et Pisone); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod. (Cn. Piso et M. Popilius). Popillius succeeded Pompeius in Hither Spain, and when the latter's treaty with Numantia was pronounced invalid, renewed the war (Liv. Per. 54 and 55; App. Ib. 79; cf. Frontin. Str. 3.17.9; Flor. 1.34.5; Eutrop. 4.17). He apparently used the period of inactivity to join Servilius Caepio in Farther Spain and negotiate with Viriathus (Diod. 33.21; Dio fr. 79; cf. Schulten, NJ 39 [1917] 226f.; Gesch. Numantia 73f.; and 138, Promagistrates). On Popillius, see L├╝bker no. 6. (Broughton MRR I)
