  • Praetor? 45 (Broughton MRR II) Expand

    • Governor, probably Proconsul, of Bithynia and Pontus, appointed before Caesar's death (App. BC 3.2; cf. Plut. Brut. 19.2). An active member of the conspiracy, he initiated proceedings on the Ides of March by asking for pardon for his brother (Nic. Dam. Vit. Caes. 24, FGrH 2A.408f.; Suet. Iul. 82.1; Plut. Caes. 66.3-4; Brut. 17.2-4; App. BC 2.113, and 117; Dio 47.31.1; cf. Cic. Phil. 2.27; Senec. Ep. Mor. 83.12; Ira 3.30.4-5; Dio 44.19.4). He immediately departed to Bithynia, succeeding Marcius Crispus, and prepared a fleet (Cic. Fam. 12.13.3) as well as money and troops at Brutus' request (App. BC 3.6; see 43, Promagistrates). See Sternkopf, Hermes 47 (1912) 331. (Broughton MRR II)

    • Governor, probably Proconsul, in Bithynia and Pontus (see 44, Promagistrates). He sent a fleet against Dolabella (see Quaestors, on Turullius; Cic. Fam. 12.13.3), and himself led an army against him in Asia Minor (Cic. Ad Brut. 1.6.3; Dio 47.31.1-2). (Broughton MRR II)
