Apollo'nius 3. The spokesman of an embassy sent by Antiochus IV. to Rome, in B. C. 173. He brought from his master tribute and rich presents, and requested that the senate would renew with Antiochus the alliance which had existed between his father and the Romans. (Liv. 52.6.)
Bu'teo 7. N. Fabius Buteo, praetor B. C. 173, obtained the province of Nearer Spain, but died at Massilia on his way to the province. (Liv. 41.33, 42.1, 4.)

of a weak constitution, was exposed to vicissitudes of cold and heat in order to harden his frame. The Censor would not allow his learned slave Chilo to superintend the education of his son, lest the boy should acquire slavish notions or habits, but wrote lessons of history for him in large letters with his own hand, and afterwards composed a kind of Encyclopaedia for his use. Under such tuition, the young Cato became a wise and virtuous man. He first entered life as a soldier, and served, B. C. 173, in Liguria under the consul M. Popilius Laenas. The legion to which he belonged having been disbanded, he took the military oath a second time, by the advice of his father, in order to qualify himself legally to fight against the enemy. (Cic. de Off. 1.11.) In B. C. 168, he fought against Perseus at Pydna under the consul Aemilius Paullus, whose daughter, Aemilia Tertia, he afterwards married. He distinguished himself in the battle by his personal prowess in a combat in which he first los
Cerco 2. Cn. Lutatius Cerco, one of the five ambassadors sent to Alexandria, B. C. 173. (Liv. 42.6.) The annexed coin of the Lutatia gens contains on the obverse the name CERCO with the head of Pallas, and on the reverse Q. LUTATI, with a ship enclosed within a wreath made of oak-leaves. The reverse probably refers to the victory of C. Lutatius Catulus, which would of course be regarded by the Cercones as well as the Catuli as conferring honour upon their gens. (Eckhel, v. p. 240.)
C. Cicereius the secretary (scriba) of the elder Scipio Africanus, was a candidate for the praetorship in B. C. 174 along with Scipio's son, but when he saw that he was obtaining 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
Clu'vius 1. C. Cluvius Saxula, praetor in B. C. 175, and again in B. C. 173 praetor peregrinus. (Liv. 41.22, 33, 42.1.)
Crassipes 1. M. Furius Crassipes, was one of the three commissioners appointed in B. C. 194 to found a Latin colony among the Brutii, and he with his colleagues accordingly led, two years afterwards, 3700 foot soldiers and 300 horsemen to Vibo, which had been previously called Hipponium. Crassipes was elected praetor, in B. C. 187, and obtained the province of Gaul. Desiring to obtain a pretext for a war, he deprived the Cenomani of their arms, though they had been guilty of no offence ; but when this people appealed to the senate at Rome, Crassipes was commanded to restore them their arms, and to depart from the province. He obtained the praetorship a second time in B. C. 173, and received Sicily as his province. (Liv. 34.53, 35.40, 38.42, 39.3, 41.28. s. 33, 42.1.)

Denter, Caeci'lius 3. M. Caecilius Denter, one of the ambassadors who were sent, in B. C. 173, to king Perseus to inspect the affairs of Macedonia, and to Alexandria to renew the friendship with Ptolemy. (Liv. 42.6.) [L.S]
Eulaeus (*Eu)lai=os), an eunuch, became one of the regents of Egypt and guardians of Ptolemy Philometor on the death of Cleopatra, the mother of the latter, in B. C. 173. The young king was then 13 years old, and he is said to have been brought up in the greatest luxury and effeminacy by Eulaeus, who hoped to render his own influence permanent by the corruption and consequent weakness of Ptolemy. It was Eulaeus who, by refusing the claims of Antiochus IV. (Epiphanes) to the provinces of Coele-Syria and Palestine, involved Egypt in the disastrous war with Syria in B. C. 171. (Plb. 28.16; Diod. Fragm. lib. xxx. Exc. de Leg. xviii. p. 624, de Virt. ct Vit. p. 579; Liv. 42.29, 45.11, 12; App. Syr. 66; Just. 34.2.) [E.

t only disapproved of his conduct, but ordered the marble slabs to be sent back, and expiatory sacrifices to be offered to Juno. The commands of the senate were obeyed, but as there was no architect in Bruttium able to restore the marble slabs to their place, they were deposited in the area of the temple, and there they remained. After his censorship Q. Fulvius Flaccus became a member of the college of pontiffs; but he began to show symptoms of mental derangement, which was looked upon by the people as a just punishment for the sacrilege he had committed against the temple of Juno. While in this condition, he received intelligence that of his two sons who were serving in Illyricum, one had died, and the other was dangerously ill. This appears to have upset his mind completely, and he hung himself in his own bedchamber, B. C. 173. (Liv. 39.39, 56, 40.1, 16, 30, &c., 35-44, 53, 59, 41.27, 42.3, 28 ; Veil. Pat. 1.10, 2.8; Appian, App. Hisp. 42; V. Max. 1.1.20, 2.5.7; Cic. in Verr. 1.41.)
