Ahenobarbus 2. Cn. Domitius Cn. F. L. N. AHENOBARBUS, son of the preceding, was chosen pontifex in B. C. 172, when a young man (Liv. 42.28), and in 169 was sent with two others as commissioner into Macedonia. (44.18.) In 167 he was one of the ten commissioners for arranging the affairs of Macedonia in conjunction with Aemilius Paullus (xlv 17); and when the consuls of 162 abdicated account of some fault in the auspices in their election, he and Cornelius Lentulus were chosen consuls in their stead. (Cic. de Nat. Deor. 2.4, de Div 2.35; Val. Max. 1.1.3.)
Anti'gonus (*)Anti/gonos), son of ALEXANDER, was sent by Perseus, king of Macedonia, as ambassador into Boeotia, in B. C. 172, and succeeded in inducing the towns of Coroneia, Thebes, and Haliartus to remain faithful to the king. (Plb. 27.5.) [L.
Callias 5. One of the Thespian ambassadors, who appeared at Chalcis before the Roman commissioners, Marcius and Atilius, to make a surrender of their city, renouncing the alliance of Perseus, B. C. 172. In common with the deputies from all the Boeotian towns, except Thebes, they were favourably received by the Romans, whose object was to dissolve the Boeotian confederacy,--an object accomplished in the same year. (Plb. 27.1, 2; Liv. 42.43, 44; Clinton, Fast. ii. p. 80, iii. p. 398.) [E.E]
ining more votes than the latter, he resigned in his favour. (V. Max. 4.5.3, 3.5.2.) Cicereius was, however, elected praetor in the following year (B. C. 173), and he obtained the province of Sardinia, but was ordered by the senate to go to Corsica first, in order to conduct the war against the inhabitants of that island. After defeating the Corsicans in battle, he granted them peace on the payment of 200,000 pounds of wax, and then passed over to Sardinia. On his return to Rome next year (B. C. 172) he sued for a triumph on account of his victory in Corsica, and when this was refused by the senate, he celebrated on his own authority a triumph on the Alban mount, a practice which had now become not unfrequent. In the same year he was one of the three ambassadors sent to the Illyrian king, Gentins; and in B. C. 167 he was again despatched on the same mission. In the year before (B. C. 168) he dedicated on the Alban mount the temple to Juno Moneta, which he had vowed in his battle with
Clu'vius 2. SP. CLUVIUS, praetor in B. C. 172, had Sardinia as his province. (Liv. 42.9, 10.)

Crassus, Clau'dius 2. C. Licinius Crassus, C. F. P. N., brother of No. 1, was praetor in B. C. 172, and in B. C. 171 served as legatus with his brother in Greece, and commanded the right wing in the unsuccessful battle against Perseus. In B. C. 168 he was consul, and in the following year went to Macedonia, instead of proceeding to Cisalpine Gaul, which was his appointed province. (Liv. 45.17.)
Deci'mius 3. M. Decimius, was sent with Tib. Claudius Nero as ambassador to Crete and Rhodes in B. C. 172, just before the outbreak of the war with Perseus, for the purpose of discovering whether they had been tempted by Perseus, and of trying to renew their friendship with Rome. (Liv. 42.19.)
Gulussa (*Tolo/sshs, *Tolossh=s), a Numidian, was the second son of Masinissa, and brother to Micipsa and Mastanabal. In B. C. 172 he was sent by his father to Rome, and answered the Carthaginian ambassador's complaints of Masinissa, and his encroachments. The defence must have seemed unsatisfactory enough, had not the Roman senate been indisposed to scrutinise it strictly. In the next year we find him again at Rome, stating to the senate what forces Masinissa was ready to furnish for the war with Macedonia, and warning them against the alleged perfidy of the Carthaginians, who were preparing, he said, a large fleet, ostensibly to aid the Romans, but with the intention of using it on the side to which their own interest should seem to point. Again we hear of his being sent by his father to Carthage, to require the restoration of those who had been exiled for. attachment to his cause. On the death of Masinissa, in B. C. 149, Scipio portioned his royal prerogatives among his sons, assi
Ha'rpalus 2. The chief of the ambassadors sent by Perseus to Rome in B. C. 172, to answer the complaints of Eumenes, king of Pergamus. Harpalus gave great offence to the Romans by the haughty and vehement tone that he assumed, and exasperated the irritation already existing against Perseus. (Liv. 42.14, 15; Appian, Maced. 9.2.) [E.H.B]
T. Juve'ntius 2. mentioned by Livy (42.27) as one of the legati sent into Apulia and Calabria to purchase corn in B. C. 172, is probably the same as the T. Juventius Thalna who was praetor in B. C. 194. [THALNA.]
