A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), Agatha'rchides (search)
that he was subsequently guardian to one of the kings of Egypt during his minority. This was no doubt one of the two sons of Ptolemy Physcon. Dodwell endeavours to shew that it was the younger son, Alexander, and objects to Soter, that he reigned conjointly with his mother. This, however, was the case with Alexander likewise. Wesseling and Clinton think the elder brother to be the one meant, as Soter II. was more likely to have been a minor on his accession in B. C. 117, than Alexander in B. C. 107, ten years after their father's death. Moreover Dodwell's date would leave too short an interval between the publication of Agatharchides's work on the Erythraean Sea (about B. C. 113), and the work of Artemidorus. Works An enumeration of the works of Agatharchides is given by Photius (Phot. Bibl. 213). He wrote a work on Asia, in 10 books, and one on Europe, in 49 books; a geographical work on the Erythraean Sea, in 5 books, of the first and fifth books of which Photius gives an abstra
Bellie'nus 1. L. ANNIUS BELLIENUS, praetor in B. C. 107, served under Marius in the war against Jugurtha and Bocchus. (Sal. Jug. 104.)
sul Q. Metellus, applied for assistance to Bocchus, whose daughter was his wife. Bocchus complied the more readily with this request, since at the beginning of the war he had made offers of alliance and friendship to the Romans, which had been rejected. But when Q. Metellus also sent an embassy to him at the same time, Bocchus entered into negotiations with him likewise, and in consequence of this the war against Jugurtha was almost suspended so long as Q. Metellus had the command. When in B. C. 107, C. Marius came to Africa as the successor of Metellus, Bocchus sent several embassies to him, expressing his desire to enter into friendly relations with Rome; but when at the same time Jugurtha promised Bocchus the third part of Numidia, and C. Marius ravaged the portion of Bocchus's dominion which he had formerly taken from Jugurtha, Bocchus accepted the proposal of Jugurtha, and joined him with a large force. The two kings thus united made an attack upon the Romans, but were defeated i
form of calidus, and hence Cicero (de Inment. 2.9) says, " aliquem Caldum vocari, quod temerario et repentino consilio sit." 1. C. CAELIUS CALDUS, a contemporary of L. Crassus, the orator. No member of his family had yet obtained any of the great offices, but he succeeded in raising himself by his activity and eloquence, though his powers as an orator do not appear to have been very great. After having endeavoured in vain to obtain the quaestorship (Cic. pro Planc. 21), he was elected in B. C. 107, tribune of the plebs. His tribuneship is remarkable for a lex tabellaria, which was directed against the legate C. Popillius, and which ordained that in the courts of justice the votes should be given by means of tablets in cases of high treason. Cicero (De Leg. 3.16) states, that Caldus regretted, throughout his life, having proposed this law, as it did injury to the republic. In B. C. 94, he was made consul, together with L. Domitius Ahenobarbus, in preference to a competitor of very hi
C. Ca'nius a Roman knight, who defended P. Rutilius Rufus, when he was accused by M. Aemilius Scaurus in B. C. 107. Cicero relates an amusing tale of how this Canius was taken in by a banker at Syracuse, of the name of Pythius, in the purchase of some property. (Cic. de Orat. 2.69, de Off. 3.14.)
the words referred to above (9.3.93), that the remarks of Cornificius on figures must have been taken from a separate and distinct tract confined to that subject. We can accord to Sch├╝tz the merit of having demonstrated that M. Antonius Gnipho may be the compiler, and that there is no testimony, external or internal, to render this position untenable; but we cannot go further. There are several historical allusions dispersed up and down reaching from the consulship of L. Cassius Longinus, B. C. 107, to the death of Sulpicius in B. C. 88; and if Burmann and others are correct in believing that the second consulship of Sulla is distinctly indicated (4.54, 68), the fact will be established, that these books were not published before B. C. 80. The materials for arriving at a correct judgment with regard to the merits of this controversy, will be found in the preface of the younger Burmann, to his edition of the Rhetorica ad Herennium and De Inventione, printed at Leyden in 1761, 8vo.,
Clau'dius 29. App. Claudius Pulcher, son of No. 25. He inherited his father's enmity to P. Scipio Aemilianus. (Cic. pro Scaur. 2.32.) In B. C. 107 he took part in the discussions respecting the agrarian law of Sp. Thorius. (Cic. de Orat. 2.70.) He appears to have been of a facetious disposition. (Cic. de Orat. 2.60.)

. (V. Max. 9.1.1.) He was engaged, on behalf of the same Orata, in another cause, in which the following interesting question arose :--How far is a vendor, selling a house to a person from whom he had previously purchased it, liable to damages for not expressly mentioning in the conveyance a defect in title that existed at the time of the former sale, and of which the purchaser might therefore be supposed to be congnizant? (Cic. de Off. 3.16, de Orat. 1.39.) He was tribune of the people in B. C. 107, but the period of this office was not distinguished by anything remarkable. In B. C. 106 he spoke in favour of the lex Servilia, by which it was proposed to restore to the equites the judicia, which were then in the hands of the senatorian order. The contests for the power of being selected as judices, which divided the different orders, prove how much the administration of justice was perverted by partiality and faction. As there is much confusion in the history of the judicia, it may be
Di'vico a commander of the Helvetians in the war against L. Cassius, in B. C. 107. Nearly fifty years later, B. C. 58, when J. Caesar was preparing to attack the Helvetians, they sent an embassy to him, headed by the aged Divico, whose courageous speech is recorded by Caesar. (B. G. 1.13; comp. Oros. 5.1; Liv. Epit. 65.)
