M. Aburius 2. M. Aburius, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 187, opposed M. Fulvius the proconsul in his petition for a triumph, but withdrew his opposition chiefly through the influence of his colleague Ti. Gracchus. (Liv. 39.4. 5.) He was praetor peregrinus, B. C. 176. (Liv. 41.18. 19.)
Albi'nus 13. A. Postumius Albinus, A. F. A. N., was curule aedile B. C. 187, when he exhibited the Great Games, praetor 185, and consul 180. (Liv. 39.7, 23, 40.35.) In his consulship he conducted the war against the Ligurians. (40.41.) He was censor 174 with Q. Fulvius. Their censorship was a severe one; they expelled nine members from the senate, and degraded many of equestrian rank. They executed, however, many public works. (41.32, 42.10; comp. Cic. Ver. 1.41.) He was elected in his censorship one of the decemviri sacrorum in the place of L. Cornelius Lentulus. (Liv. 42.10.) Albinus was engaged in many public missions. In 175 he was sent into northern Greece to inquire into the truth of the representations of the Dardanians and Thessalians about the Bastarnae and Perseus. (Plb. 26.9.) In 171 he was sent as one of the ambassadors to Crete (Liv. 42.35); and after the conquest of Macedonia in 168 he was one of the ten commissioners appointed to settle the affairs of the country with

emies who had taken refuge at his court. He had, moreover, to give twenty hostages for the due fulfilment of the treaty, and among them his son Antiochus (Epiphanes). To these terms he acceded, but allowed Hannibal to escape. About this time Antiochus lost Armenia, which became an independent kingdom. He found great difficulty in raising money to pay the Romans, and was thus led to plunder a wealthy temple in Elymais ; the people, however, rose against him and killed him in his attempt. (B. C. 187.) The defeat of Antiochus by the Romans, and his death in a " fort of his own land," are foretold in the book of Daniel. (11.18, 19.) Antiochus was killed in the 52nd year of his age and the 37th of his reign. He married Laodice, daughter of Mithridates, king of Pontus, and had several children. His sons were, 1. Antiochus, who died in his father's lifetime. (Liv. 35.15.) 2. Ardys, 3. Mithridates, both of whom also probably died before their father. (Liv. 33.10.) 4. Seleucus Philopator, wh
Apollo'phanes (*)Apollofa/nhs), a native of Seleuceia, and physician to Antiochus the Great, king of Syria, B. C. 223-187, with whom, as appears from Polybius (5.56, 58), he possessed considerable influence. Mead, in his Dissert. de Nummis quibusdam a Smyrnaeis in Medicorum Honorem percussis, Lond. 1724, 4to., thinks that two bronze coins, struck in honour of a person named Apollophanes, refer to the physician of this name; but this is now generally considered to be a mistake. (See Dict. of Ant. s. v. Medicus.) A physician of the same name is mentioned by several ancient medical writers. (Fabricius, Bibl. Gr. vol. xiii. p. 76, ed. vet.; C. G. Kühn, Additam. ad Elenchum Medicorum Veterum a Jo. A. Fabricio, &c, exhibitum, Lips. 4to., 1826. Fascic. iii. p. 8.) [W.A
A'rtemon 10. A SYRIAN of royal descent, who lived in and after the reign of Antiochus the Great. He resembled the king so much, that when, in B. C. 187, Antiochus was killed, the queen Laodice put Artemon into a bed, pretending that he was the king, and dangerously ill. Numbers of persons were admitted to see him; and all believed that they were listening to their king when he recommended to them Laodice and her children. (Plin. Nat. 7.10; V. Max. 9.14. ext. 1.) [L.S]
Auguri'nus 8. C. Minucius Augurinus, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 187, proposed the imposition of a fine upon L. Scipio Asiaticus, and demanded that Scipio should give security (praedes). As Scipio, however, refused to do so, Augurinus ordered him to be seized and carried to prison, but was unable to carry his command into effect in consequence of the intercession of his colleague, Tib. Sempronius Gracchus, the father of Tib. and C. Gracchi. (Gel. 7.19.) A different account of this affair is given in Livy. (38.55-60.)
Blaesus 6. C. Sempronius Blaesus, plebeian aedile in B. C. 187, and praetor in Sicily in 184. In 170, he was sent with Sex. Julius Caesar as ambassador to Abdera. (Liv. 39.7, 32, 38, 43.6.)
Calli'critus (*Kalli/kritos), a Theban, was sent as ambassador from the Boeotians to the Roman senate, B. C. 187, to remonstrate against the requisition of the latter for the recall of Zeuxippus from exile. The sentence of banishment had been passed against him both for sacrilege and for the murder of Brachyllas [see p. 502a.]; and Cgllicritus represented to the Romans on behalf of his countrymen, that they could not annul a sentence which had been legally pronounced. The remonstrance was at first unavailing, though ultimately the demand of the senate was not pressed. (Plb. 23.2.) It was probably the same Callicritus who strongly opposed in the Boeotian assembly the views of Perseus. He appears even to have gone to Rome to warn the senate of the king's schemes, and was murdered, by order of the latter, on his way back. (Liv. 42.13, 40.) [E.

applied the treasures of Antiochus to his own use, and was ultimately obliged to retire from the contest. Cato was active in promoting the opposition to his old general, and declared that he had seen vessels of gold and silver among the royal booty in the camp, but had not seen them displayed in the parade of Glabrio's triumph. Neither Cato nor Flaccus was elected. The choice fell upon two of the opposite party, T. Flamininus and M. Marcellus. Cato was not to be daunted by a failure. In B. C. 187, M. Fulvius Nobilior returned from Aetolia, and sought the honour of a triumph. Again, Cato was found at his post of opposition. Fulvius was indulgent to his soldiers. He was a man of literary taste, and patronized Ennius, who was his companion in hours not devoted to military duty. All this was repugnant to the old Roman principles of Cato, who, among other charges, found fault with Fulvius for keeping poets in his camp (Cic. Tusc. 1.2), and impairing military discipline, by giving crowns
Cethe'gus 3. P. Cornelius Cethegus, L. F. P. N., curule aedile in B. C. 187, praetor in 185, and consul in 181. The grave of Numa was discovered in his consulship. He triumphed with his colleague Baebius Tamphilus over the Ligurians, though no battle had been fought,--an honour that had not been granted to any one before. In 173 he was one of the ten commissioners for dividing the Ligurian and Gallic lands. (Liv. 39.7, 23, 40.18; V. Max. 1.1.12; Plin. Nat. 13.13. s. 27 ; Plut. Num. 22; Liv. 40.38, 42.4.)
