Galba, Ser. Sulpi'cius a Roman emperor, who reigned from June, A. D. 68 to January, A. D. 69. He was descended from the family of the Galbae, a branch of the patrician Sulpicia Gens, but had no connection with the family of Augustus, which became extinct by the death of Nero. He was a son of Sulpicius Galba [GALBA, No. 12] and Mummia Achaica, and was born in a villa near Terracina, on the 24th of December, B. C. 3. Livia Ocellina, a relative of Livia, the wife of Augustus, and the second wife of Galba's father, adopted young Ser. Sulpicius Galba, who on this account altered his name into L. Livius Ocella, which he bore down to the time of his elevation. Both Augustus and Tiberius are said to have told him, that one day he would be at the head of the Roman world, from which we must infer that he was a young man of more than ordinary talents. His education appears to have been the same as that of other young nobles of the time, and we know that he paid some attention to the study of th
Lentulus 38. L. Cornelius Lentulus, L. F., consul B. C. 3, with M. Valerius Messallinus. (Index, ad Dion Cass. lv.; Suet. Galb. 4.) By some authorities he is called Cneius, but Lucius seems to be the correct praenomen (see Pighius, ad Ann.). He would seem to have been a brother of No. 36, and may possibly have been the same as No. 34, the son of L. Lentulus Niger [No. 33.].
he deemed its functions unconstitutional--incivilem potestatem (Euseb. 1991),--or himself unequal to their discharge--quasi nescius imperandi (Tac. Ann. 6.11; comp. D. C. 54.6). Messalla soon afterwards withdrew from all public employments except his augurship, to which Augustus had specially appointed him, although, at the time of his admission, there was no vacancy in the augural college. (D. C. 49.16.) About two years before his death, which happened about the middle of Augustus's reign, B. C. 3-A. D. 3 (Dialog. de Orat. 17), Messalla's memory failed him, and he often could not recall his own name. (Hieron. ad Euseb. 2027; Plin. Nat. 7.24.) A statue erected by Augustus in his own forum to M. Valerius Corvus, consul in B. C. 348, was probably either a tribute to his living or a memorial of his deceased friend Messalla. (Gel. 9.11; comp. Suet. Aug. 21.) He left at least one son, Aurelius Cotta Messallinus [COTTA, No. 12]; and he had a brother who bore the name of Gellius Poplicola. (

Muste'la, Tami'sius a native of Anagnia in the Hernican territory, was one of M. Antony's retainers in B. C. 44-3. (Cic. Phil. 2.4, 5.6, 8.9, 12.6, 13.2, ad Att. 16.11.) [W.B.D]
