    • Sisenna is entitled {Gr} in SIG(3) 705, line 32, and the phrase {Gr} appears in line 60, while in 704, line 4 occurs {Gr}. The term {Gr} which the editors of SIG(3) take to mean praetor pro consule (705, note 27) is interpreted by Holleaux as {Gr} (to the Greeks) and proconsul (to the Romans), but may refer merely to the two titles governors of Macedonia were likely to bear, Praetor, and Proconsul (see Holleaux, Hermes 49 [1914] 581-589; REA 19 [1917] 88ff.; and on Praetor pro consule, Broughton, TAPhA 77 [1946] 38f.). The date is given by mention of year 30 of the Macedonian era in SIG(3) 704, and would actually fall in Aug.- Sept. 118 B.C. See Holleaux (REA 19 [1917] 80-82) and Tod (ABSA 23 [1918-19] 206-217; 24 [1919-1921] 54ff.), who supersede the datings of Zumpt and Gäbler (RE s. v. "Makedonia" 764ff.); and on these inscriptions, see also Klaffenbach, Symb. Hist. Coll. Artif. Bacch. 29ff.; Daux, Delphes 362-365. See Jashemski 53f. On the Macedonian era see also Accame, Dominio romano in Grecia 11f. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Governor (probably Proconsul) of Macedonia, where he gave judgement in a dispute between the guild of Dionysiac artists and the managers of the Isthmic games (SIG 704, 705). (Broughton MRR I)
