FROM THE VATICAN MSS. OF CARDINAL MAI Y.R. 644 BOMILCAR being under accusation fled before his trial, B.C. 110 and with him Jugurtha, who uttered that famous saying about bribetakers, that "the whole city of Rome could be bought if a purchaser could be found for it." FROM PEIRESC Y.R. 645 Metellus went back to the African province, where he B.C. 109 was accused by the soldiers of slothfulness toward the enemy and of cruelty toward his own men, because he punished offenders severely. FROM PEIRESC Y.R. 646 Metellus put the whole senate of Vacca to death because B.C. 108 they had betrayed the Roman garrison to Jugurtha, and with them, also, Turpilius, the prefect of the guard, a Roman citizen, who was under suspicion of being in league with the enemy. After Jugurtha had delivered up to Metellus certain Thracian and Ligurian deserters, the latter cut off the hands of some, and others he b

ften elsewhere, the phrase, ‘they say,’ is not an expression of doubt, but an indication that the story was found in several writers. We know the names of at least two writers in whose works such a tradition would have been likely to occur. One of them is Satyrus (c. 200 B.C.), whose collection of biographies was used by the author of the Life of SophoclesSee Introduction to the Oed. Col., § 18, p. xli. J. S. III.3; the other—also quoted in the Life—is Carystius of Pergamum, who lived about 110 B.C., and wrote a book, *peri\ didaskaliw=n—‘Chronicles of the Stage’—which Athenaeus cites. At the time when these works —and there were others of a similar kind—were compiled, old and authentic lists of Athenian plays, with their dates, appear to have been extant in such libraries as those of Alexandria and Pergamum. When, therefore, we meet with a tradition,—dating at least from the second century B.C.,—which affirms that the strategia of Sophocles was due to his Antigone, o

and celebrated in front of the temple (Cic. de har. resp. 24; cf. for site Ov. Fast. ii. 55; Mart. vii. 73. 3). It was burned in 111 B.C., when the statue of Quinta Cloelia within it was uninjured, restored by a Metellus, probably the consul of 110 B.C., burned again and restored by Augustus in 3 A.D. (Val. Max. i. 8. II; Obseq. 99; Ov. Fast. iv. 347-348; Mon. Anc. iv. 8), and was standing unharmed in the fourth century (Not. Reg. X). It is referred to incidentally under date of 38 B.C. (Cass. hitectural fragments are of peperino, it is evident that the restoration of that period was carried out with the material of the original structure. There is considerable divergence of opinion as to the date of the podium; TF 98 attributes it to 110 B.C., and believes that the architectural members were given a new coat of stucco under Augustus. Fiechter (ap. Toeb. 5) assigns the whole to the middle of the first century B.C.; but it does not seem at all necessary to suppose that Augustus would n
Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, PORTICUS MINUCIA (search)
PORTICUS MINUCIA built by M. Minucius Rufus, consul in 110 B.C. (Veil. ii. 8. 3: per eadem tempora clarus eius Minuci qui porticusi quae hodieque celebres sunt, molitus est, ex Scordiscis triumphus fuit). This use of the plural is no evidence that the porticus was double, or that there were two buildings, for Velleius uses it elsewhere of a single porticus (ii. I. 2), as do other writers (e.g. Plin. NH xxxv. 14). In it Antonius, and probably other officials, set up their tribunals (Cic. Phil. ii. 84: in porticu Minucia), and it is mentioned in Apuleius (de mundo 35: alius ad Minuciam frumentatum venit) and in the Historia Augusta (Commod. 16: Herculis signum aeneum sudavit in Minucia per plures dies). In the calendars it occurs twice (Praen. ad xi Kal. Ian., CIL is. p. 238: laribus permarinis in porticu Minucia; Filoc. ad prid. Non. Iun., CIL i. p. 266: ludi in Minicia; cf. p. 338), and in several inscriptions of the first four centuries (see below), but always alone and in the si

Albi'nus 20. SP. POSTUMIUS SP. F. SP. N. ALBINUS, probably son of No. 19, was consul B. C. 110, and obtained the province of Numidia to carry on the war against Jugurtha. He made vigorous prepa rations for war, but when he reached the province, he did not adopt any active measures, but allowed himself to be deceived by the artifices of Jugurtha, who constantly promised to surrender. Many persons supposed that his inactivity was intentional, and that Jugurtha had bought him over. When Albinus departed from Africa, he left his brother Aulus in command. [See No. 21.] After the defeat of the latter he returned to Numidia, but in consequence of the disorganized state of his army, he did not prosecute the war, and handed over the army in this condition, in the following year, to the consul Metellus. (Sal. Jug. 35, 36, 39, 44; Oros. 4.15; Eutrop. 4.26.) He was condemned by the Mamilia Lex, which was passed to punish all those who had been guilty of treasonable practices with Jugurtha. (Cic.
Albi'nus 21. A. Postumius Albinus, brother of No. 20, and probably son of No. 19, was left by his browas ther as pro-praetor, in command of the army in Africa in B. C. 110. [See No. 20.] He marched to besiege Suthal, where the treasures of Jugurtha were deposited; but Jugurtha, under the promise of giving him a large sum of money, induced him to lead his army into a retired place, where he was suddenly attacked by the Numidian king, and only saved his troops from total destruction by allowing them to pass under the yoke, and undertaking to leave Numidia in ten days. (Sal. Jug. 36-38.)
A'nnius 5. L. Annius, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 110, attempted with P. Lucullus to continue in office the next year, but was resisted by his other colleagues. (Sal. Jug. 37.)
Aristobu'lus (*)Aristo/boulos), princes of Judaea. 1. The eldest son of Johannes Hyrcanus. In B. C. 110 we find him, together with his second brother Antigonus, successfully prosecuting for his father the siege of Samaria, which was destroyed in the following year. (J. AJ 13.10. §§ 2, 3; Bell. Jud. 1.2.7.) Hyrcanus dying in 107, Aristobulus took the title of king, this being the first instance of the assumption of that name among the Jews since the Babylonish captivity (but comp. Strab. xvi. p.762), and secured his power by the imprisonment of all his brothers except his favourite Antigonus, and by the murder of his mother, to whom Hyrcanus had left the government by will. The life of Antigonus himself was soon sacrificed to his brother's suspicions through the intrigues of the queen and her party, and the remorse felt by Aristobulus for this deed increased the illness under which he was suffering at the time, and hastened his death. (B. C. 106.) In his reign the Ituraeans were sub
