Greek culture at Rome, it had been customary for cultivated Romans of high rank to entertain Greek men of letters in their houses, partly as tutors and partly as companions. Such associates frequently accompanied their patrons on their journeys and even on their campaigns. Metello Numidico: the most distinguished member of this family. He was predecessor of Marius in the war against Jugurtha, and from this service in Numidia received his agnomen. Aemilio, i.e. M. Aemilius Scaurus (cos. B.C. 115), for many years princeps senatus. Catulo: see note on p. 156, l. 23. L. Crasso: the most distinguished orator of his time, a man of genius and culture (see Introd., ch. ii, p. xxxiv); he died B.C. 91. Drusum (M. Livius), tribune B.C. 91, a distinguished orator and statesman, who lost his life in a vain attempt to reconcile the aristocratic and democratic factions in the republic. Octavios: see Cat. 3, sect. 24. Catonem: probably the father of the famous Cato of Utica is meant. Hor

terwards known as Fides Publica (Val. Max.) or Fides Publica populi Romani (diplomata), on the Capitol. The establishment of the cult and the erection of a shrine (sacrarium, i(ero/v) is ascribed to Numa (Liv. i. 21. 4; Dionys. ii. 75; Plut. Numa 16), probably on the site of the later temple. This was dedicated--and presumably built-by A. Atilius Calatinus in 254 or 250 B.C. (Cic. de nat. deor. ii. 61, cf. Aist. de sacris aedibus 16), and restored and re-dedicated by M. Aemilius Scaurus in 115 B.C. (Cic. loc. cit.). The day of dedication was 1st October(Fast. Arv. Amit. Paul. ad Kal. Oct., CIL 2. p. 214,215,242; Fast. Ant. ap. NS 1921,114). This temple was in Capitolio (Fast. locc. citt.; Plin. NH xxxv. 100), and vicina Iovis optimi maximi (Cato ap. Cic. de off. iii. 104), and probably inside the area Capitolina, at its south-east corner near the porta Pandana Hulsen conjectures that the legend of Aracoeli (Chron. Min. iii. 428 ; cf.

ctions of the Sibylline books (Liv. xxii. 9. 10, 10. 10; Ov. Fast. vi. 241-246), at the same time with the temple of Venus Erucina. In 215 both temples were dedicated by duoviri appointed for the purpose, that of Venus by Fabius Maximus, and that of Mens by Otacilius (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9, 32. 20). The two temples were separated by an open drain (Liv. xxiii. 31. 9: uno canali discretae; cf. Serv. Georg. iv. 265). The temple of Mens seems to have been restored by M. Aemilius Scaurus, consul in 115 B.C., either at that time (WR 313 ; RE i. 587) or after his campaign against the Cimbri in 107 (Cic. de nat. deor. ii. 61 ; Plut. de fort.

Ci'cero 1. M. Tullius Cicero, grandfather of the orator, appears to have taken a lead in his own community, and vigorously opposed the projects of his fellow-townsman and brother-in-law, M. Gratidius, who had raised a great commotion at Arpinum by agitating in favour of a law for voting by ballot. The matter was referred to the consul M. Aemilius Scaurus (B. C. 115), who complimented Cicero on his conduct, declaring that he would gladly see a person of such spirit and integrity exerting his powers on the great field of the metropolis, instead of remaining in the seclusion of a country town. The old man was still alive at the birth of his eldest grandson (B. C. 106), whom he little resembled in his tastes, for he was no friend to foreign literature, and was wont to say, that his contemporaries were like Syrian slaves, the more Greek they knew, the greater scoundrels they were. (Cic. de Leg. 2.1, 3.16, de Orat.2.66.)
s, according to Cicero (de Orat. 2.31) and Aurelius Victor (de Vir. Ill. 72), whereas Livy (Liv. Epit. 61) calls him Q. Decius, was tribune of the people in B. C. 120. L. Opimius, who had been consul the year before, was brought to trial by the tribune Decius for having caused the murder of C. Gracchus, and for having thrown citizens into prison without a judicial verdict. The enemies of Decius asserted that he had been induced by bribes to bring forward this accusation. Four years later, B. C. 115, Decius was praetor urbanus, and in that year he gave great offence to M. Aemilius Scaurus, who was then consul, by keeping his seat when the consul passed by him. The haughty Scaurus turned round and ordered him to rise, but when Decius refused, Scaurus tore his gown and broke the chair of Decius to pieces; at the same time he commanded that no one should justice at the hands of the refractory praetor. It is not improbable that the hostile feeling between the two men may have arisen from
Fides the personification of fidelity or faithfulness (Cic. de Off. 3.29). Numa is said to have built a temple to Fides publica, on the Capitol (Dionys. A. R. 2.75), and another was built there in the consulship of M. Aemilius Scaurus, B. C. 115 (Cic. de Nat. Deor. 2.23, 31; 3.18; de Leg. 2.8, 11). She was represented as a matron wearing a wreath of olive or laurel leaves, and carrying in her hand corn ears, or a basket with fruit. (Rasche, Lex Num. 2.1, p. 107.) [L.S]
Fufi'dius 1. L. Fufidius, a pleader of causes in some repute at Rome, about B. C. 115-105. M. Aemilius Scaurus the elder addressed to him an autobiography in three books. (Cic. Brut. 30; Plin. Nat. 23.1. s. 6.)

M'. Acilius Glabrio M. F. M. N. GLABRIO, son of the preceding and of Mucia, a daaghter of P. Mucius Scaevola, consul in B. C. 133. He married a daughter of M. Aemilius Scaurus, consul in B. C. 115 (Cic. in Verr. 1.17), whom Sulla, in B. C. 82, compelled him to divorce. (Plut. Sull. 33, Pomp. 9.) Glabrio was praetor urbanus in B. C. 70, when he presided at the impeachment of Verres. (Cic. in Verr. 1.2.) Cicero was anxious to bring on the trial of Verres during the praetorship of Glabrio (Ib. 18; Pseudo-Ascon. in Verr. argum. p. 125, Orelli), whose conduct in the preliminaries and the presidency of the judicium he commends (in Verr. Act. 2.5.29, 63), and describes him as active in his judicial functions and careful of his reputation (in Verr. 1.10, 14), although, in a later work (Brut. 68), he says that Glabrio's natural indolence marred the good education he had received from his grandfather Scaevola. Glabrio was consul with C. Calpurnius Piso in B. C. 67, and in the following year p

M'. Acilius Glabrio son of the preceding and of Aemilia, daughter of M. Aemilius Scaurus, consul in B. C. 115. Glabrio addressed the judices in behalf of his father-in-law, who was impeached for extortion in B. C. 54. [SCAURUS.] (Ascon. in Cic. Scaurian. p. 29, Orelli.) Glabrio was born in the house of Cn. Pompey, B. C. 81,who married his mother after her compulsory divorce from the elder Glabrio [No. 5]. Aemilia died in giving birth to him. (Plut. Sull. 33, Pomp. 9.) In the civil wars, B. C. 48, Glabrio was one of Caesar's lieutenants, and commanded the garrison of Oricum in Epeirus (Caes. Civ. 3.15, 16, 39). During the African war Glabrio was stationed in Sicily, and at this time, B. C. 46, Cicero addressed to him nine letters (ad Fam. 13.30-39) in behalf of friends or clients to whom their affairs in Sicily, or the casualties of the civil war, rendered protection important. When Caesar, in B. C. 44, was preparing for the Parthian wars, Glabrio was sent forward into Greece with a d
