    • An energetic commander of cavalry under Brutus (Plut. Cic. 45.2; Brut. 24.2; cf. App. BC 4.20), he captured a legion which was under the command of a Legate of C. Antonius, L. Piso (see above), and defeated Antonius himself in the pass of Byllis (Cic. Phil. 10.13, cf. 11.26; Fam. 12.14.8; Plut. Brut. 26.2, cf. Cic. Ad Brut. 2.4.6, and 5.2 and 6). He brought cavalry from Ambracia through Thessaly to join Brutus at Heraclea (Cic. A d Brut. 1. 4a. 4, and 6. 1). He was proscribed at the end of the year (App. BC 4.19-20). See also Cic. Ad Brut. 1.5. (Broughton MRR II)

  • Augur? before 30 (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • 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)
    • At some time after his restoration in 39 Octavian advanced him to a priesthood (App. BC 4.51), more probably the augurate, which his father had held (see 53, Augurs), than the pontificate, to which his father had wished to advance him in 43 (Cic. Ad. Brut. 1.5.3). (Broughton MRR II)
