    • ref. 425 (RRC)
  • Augur? 56 to after 33 (Rüpke 2005) Expand
    • A probable member of the college of Augurs on the eve of the death of Hortensius. (Broughton MRR II)
    • Coins dated ca. 56 (Grueber, CRRBM 1.485f.) with the lituus as emblem. (Broughton MRR II)
    • A probable member of this college of priests about 31 B. C. In a number of instances the exact date when a priest became a member of his college is not known, and the conjecture is based on evidence of seniority such as the date of the consulship or some other office. The list of the Quindecimviri is based on Miss Hoffman's observation that the names listed in connection with the Saecular Games in 17 B. C. are arranged in the order of entrance into the college (see AJPh 73 [19521289-294). The names given below are drawn from Miss Hoffman's dissertation, The Membership of the Four Major Colleges of Priests from 44 B. C. to 37 A. D. (Bryn Mawr, 1951, available in microfilm). The vacancies caused by the civil wars and the proscriptions were promptly filled with partisans of Antony and Octavian or persons who were restored in 39 by the Treaty of Misenum, for in 36 Messalla Corvinus was added to the college as a supernumerary member. See Dio 48.36.4; 49.16.1; cf. 48.43.2. (Broughton MRR II)
    • Perhaps an Augur by 56 (Grueber, CRRBM 1.485f., which may however refer to an ancestor). See 50, Augurs. (Broughton MRR II)

  • Proconsul 35 Hispania (Broughton MRR II) Expand

  • Proconsul 33 Hispania (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • Celebrated, probably as Proconsul, a triumph ex Hispania on April 27 (Fast. Barb., Degrassi 342f., 569; the number of the year is not given but was almost certainly 33 B. C.; see 32, Promagistrates, on Claudius Pulcher, and Cornificius). With the booty he restored the temple of Hercules and the Muses (Suet. Aug. 29.5; cf. Ovid Fast. 6.801; Tac. Ann. 3.72).
