Blo'sius 3. C. Blosius, of Cumae, a hospes of Scaevola's family, was an intimate friend of Ti. Gracchus, whom he is said to have urged on to bring forward his agrarian law. After the death of Ti. Gracchus he was accused before the consuls in B. C. 132, on account of his participation in the schemes of Gracchus, and fearing the issue he fled to Aristonicus, king of Pergamus, who was then at war with the Romans. When Aristonicus was conquered shortly afterwards, Blosius put an end to his own life for fear of falling into the hands of the Romans. Blosius had paid considerable attention to the study of philosophy, and was a disciple of Antipater of Tarsus. (Cic. de Amic. 11, de Leg. Agr. 2.34; V. Max. 4.7.1; Plut. Ti Gracch. 8, 17, 20.)
volted, among which Talabriga is particularly mentioned. In the midst of his successes, he was recalled into Nearer Spain by his relation, Aemilius Lepidus (Appian, App. Hisp. 80), and from thence he proceeded to Rome, where he celebrated a splendid triumph, B. C. 136, for his victories over the Lusitanians and Gallaeci. Drumann (Gesch. Roms, vol. iv. p. 8), misled apparently by a passage in Eutropius (4.19), places his triumph in the same year as that of Scipio's over Numantia, namely, in B. C. 132. (Liv. Epit. 55, 56; Appian, App. Hisp. 71-73; Flor. 2.17.12 ; Ores. 5.5; Vell. 2.5; Cic. pro Balb. 17; Plut. Quaest. Rom. 34, Ti. Gracch. 21; V. Max. 6.4, extern. 1.) With the booty obtained in Spain, Brutus erected temples and other public buildings, for which the poet L. Accius wrote inscriptions in verse. (Cic. pro Arch. 11; Plin. Nat. 36.4. s. 5.7; V. Max. 8.14.2.) The last time we hear of Brutus is in B. C. 129, when he served under C. Sempronius Tuditanus against the Japydes, and
abilities; for, while the career of Tiberius lasted scarcely seven months, that of Caius extends over a series of years. At the time of his brother's murder, in B. C. 133, Caius was in Spain, where he received his first military training in the army of P. Scipio Africanus, who, although his wife was the sister of the Gracchi, exclaimed, on receiving the intelligence of the murder of Tiberius, " So perish all who do the like again! " It was probably in the year after his brother's murder, B. C. 132, that Caius returned with Scipio from Spain. The calamity which had befallen his brother had unnerved him, and an inner voice dissuaded him from taking any part in public affairs. The first time that he spoke in public was on behalf of his friend Vettius, who was under persecution, and whom he defended. On that occasion he is said to have surpassed all the other Roman orators. The people looked forward with great anticipations to his future career, but the aristocracy watched him with jeal
Hypsaeus 3. L. Plautius Hypsaeus, a son probably of the preceding, was praetor in Sicily during the Servile War, B. C. 134-132, and routed by the insurgent slaves. ( Flor. 3.19.7.)
, either alarmed at the hostility it excited, or convinced of its impracticability, lie desisted from the attempt, and for his forbearance received the appellation of the Wise or the Prudent (Plut. TG 8). Laelius indeed had neither the steady principles of Tiberius, nor the fervid genius of C. Gracchus. He could discern, but he could not apply the remedy for social evils. And after the tribunate of the elder Gracchus, B. C. 133, his sentiments underwent a change. He assisted the consuls of B. C. 132 in examining C. Blossius of Cumae and the other partizans of Tib. Gracchus (Cic. de Amic. 11 ; comp. Plut. TG 20), and in B. C. 130, he spoke against the Papirian Rogation, which would have enabled the tribunes of the plebs to be re-elected from year to year (Cic. de Amic. 25; Liv. Epit. 59). But although Laelius was the strenuous opponent of the popular leaders of his age--the tribunes C. Licinius Crassus, B. C. 145, C. Papirius Carbo, B. C. 131, and C. Gracchus B. C. 123-122 --nature had
Laenas 7. P. Popillius Laenas, C. F. P. N., was consul B. C. 132, the year after the murder of Tib. Gracchus. He was charged by the victorious aristocratical party with the prosecution of the accomplices of Gracchus; and in this odious task he showed all the hard-heartedness of his family. (Cic. Lael. 20; V. Max. 4.7; Plut. T. Gracc. 20.) C. Gracchus afterwards aimed at him in particular, when he passed the bill that those magistrates who had condemned a citizen without trial should be called to account. Popillius withdrew himself, by voluntary exile, from the vengeance of Gracchus, and did not return to Rome till after his death. (Vell. 2.7; Cic. Brut. 25; Plut. T. Gracch. 20.

ibune in B. C. 150 or 149, but it must have been in the latter year that he held the office, as we are expressly told that Cato spoke against Galba in the year of his death, and this we know was B. C. 149. (Liv. Epit. 49; V. Max. 8.1.2; Cic. Brut. 23, de Orat. 2.65; Meyer, Orator. Roman. Fragm. p. 120, &c., p. 166, &c., 2d ed.) It was, perhaps, this same Libo who wrote an historical work (liber annalis), referred to once or twice by Cicero, and which must have come down at least as late as B. C. 132. (Cic. Att. 13.30, 32.) But Ernesti has remarked, with some justice, that supposing the accuser of Galba and the annalist were the same, it is rather strange that Cicero should have made no mention of Libo's historical compositions, when he was speaking of his style of oratory. (Comp. Krause, Vitae et Fragm. Histor. Roman. p. 138.) It was perhaps this same Libo who consecrated the Puteal Scribonianum or Puteal Libonis, of which we so frequently read in ancient writers, and which is often

Ma'ximus, Fa'bius 8. Q. Fabius Maximus Aemilianus, Q. F. Q. N., was by adoption only a Fabius Maximus, being by birth the eldest son of L. Paullus Aemiliis, the conqueror of Perseus, consul in B. C. 132. Fabius served under his father (Aemilius) in the last Macedonian war, B. C. 168, and was despatched by him to Rome with the news of his victory at Pydna. (Plb. 29.6.) Fabius was praetor in Sicily B. C. 149-148, and consul in 145. Spain was his province, where he encountered, and at length defeated Viriarathus. (Liv. 44.35 ; Appian, Hispan. 65, 67, 90, Maced. 17; Plut. paull. Aem. 5; Cic. de Amic. 25.) Fabius was the pupil and patron of the historian Polybius, who has recorded some interesting and honourable traits of his filial and fraternal conduct, and of the affection entertained for him by his younger brother, Scipio Aemilianus. (Plb. 18.18.6, 32.8.4, 9.9, 10.3, 14, 33.6.3, 9.5 38.3.8; Cic. De Amic. 19, Paradox. 6.2.)
Pompeius 4. POMPEIUS, is mentioned as one of the opponents of Tib. Gracchus in B. C. 133 : he stated that, as he lived near Gracchus, he knew that Eudemus of Pergamum had given a diadem out of the royal treasures and a purple robe to Gracchus, and he also promised to accuse the latter as soon as his year of office as tribune had expired. (Plut. TG 14; Oros. 5.8.) Drumann makes this Pompeius the son of No. 3, and likewise tribune of the plebs for B. C. 132; but although neither of these suppositions is impossible, there is still no authority for them. It is not impossible that this Pompeius is the same as the preceding ; and as the latter very likely possessed public land, he would be ready enough to oppose Gracchus, although he had previously belonged to the popular party. We have likewise seen from his conduct in the Numantine war that he had no great regard for truth.
Rupi'lia Gens plebeian, is rarely mentioned. It produced only one person of importance, namely, P. Rupilius, consul B. C. 132. None of the Rupilii bear any surnames, and the name does not occur on coins. Instead of Rupilius, we frequently find the better known name of Rutilius in many editions of the ancient writers. Accordingly Glandorp, in his Onomasticon, does not admit the Rupilii at all, but inserts all the persons of the name under Rutilius.
