g Ptolemy V. (Euergetes.) During the administration of Agathocles Aristomenes was all-pow-erful, and when the insurrection against Agathocles broke out in B. C. 205, Aristomenes was the only one among his friends who ventured to go and try to pacify the rebellious Macedonians. But this attempt was useless, and Aristomenes himself narrowly escaped being murdered by the insurgents. After Agathocles was put to death, Tlepolemus, who had headed the insurrection, was appointed regent. But about B. C. 202, Aristomenes contrived to get the regency and distinguished himself now by the energy and wisdom of his administration no less than previously by his faithfulness to Agathocles. Scopas and Dicaearchus, two powerful men, who ventured to oppose his government, were put to death by his command. Towards the young king, Aristomenes was a frank, open, and sincere councillor; but as the king grew up to manhood, he became less and less able to bear the sincerity of Aristomenes, who was at last con
Bae'bius 1. L. Baebius, one of the ambassadors sent by Scipio to Carthage, B. C. 202. He was afterwards left by Scipio in command of the camp. (Liv. 30.25; Plb. 15.1, 4.)

Cotta, Aure'lius 3. C. Aurelius Cotta, was praetor urbanus, in B. C. 202, and consul in 200, with P. Sulpicius Galba. He obtained Italy as his province, and with it the command in the war against the Boians, Insubrians and Cenomanians, who, under the command of Hamilcar, a Carthaginian, had invaded the Roman dominion. The praetor, L. Furius Purpureo, however, had the merit of conquering the enemies; and Cotta, who was indignant at the laurels being snatched from him, occupied himself chiefly with plundering and ravaging the country of the enemy, and gained more booty than glory, while the praetor Furius was honoured with a triumph. (Liv. 30.26, 27, 31.5, 6, 10, 11, 21, 22, 47, 49; Zonar. 9.15; Oros. 4.20.)
Fullo 2. L. Apustius Fullo, son probably of the preceding. He was aedile of the plebs in B. C. 202, when the plebeian games in the Flaminian Circus were thrice repeated. Fullo was Praetor Urbanus in B. C. 196, and afterwards commissioner under a plebiscite of Q. Aelius Tubero, for establishing a Latin colony in the district of Thurii, B. C. 194. (Liv. 31.4, 33.24, 26, 34.53, 35.9.) [W.B.D]

Ge'minus, Servi'lius 3. M. Servilius Palex Geminus, C. F. P. N., was elected augur in B. C. 211, in the place of Spurius Carvilins, who had died; and in B. C. 203 he was curule aedile, and, conjointly with his colleague, he dedicated a golden quadriga on the Capitol. In the year same he was magister equitum to the dictator, P. Sulpicius Galba, with whom he travelled through Italy, to examine the causes which had led several towns to revolt against Rome. In B. C. 202 he was consul with Tib. Claudius Nero, and obtained Etruria for his province, which he occupied with his two legions, and in which his imperium was prolonged for the year following. In B. C. 200 he was one of the ten commissioners to distribute land in Samnium and Appulia among the veterans of Scipio. In B. C. 197 he was one of the triumvirs appointed for a period of three years, to establish a series of colonies on the western coast of Italy. In B. C. 167, during the disputes as to whether a triumph was to be granted to
Gisco 7. A Carthaginian who came forward in the assembly of the people to harangue against the conditions of peace proposed by Scipio, after the battle of Zama, B. C. 202. Hannibal, who knew that all was lost, and that it was useless to object to the terms offered, when there were no means of obtaining better, forcibly interrupted him, and dragged him down from the elevated position he had occupied to address the assembly; an act which he afterwards excused, by saying, that he had been so long employed in war, he had forgotten the usages of peaceful assemblies. (Liv. 30.37.) The same circumstance is related by Polybius (15.19), but without mentioning the name of the speaker.
34), was one of the leaders of the party at Carthage favourable to peace towards the end of the Second Punic War. Hence when the envoys sent by Scipio were in danger of their lives from the fury of the populace at Carthage, it was this Hasdrubal, together with Hanno, the leader of the anti-Barcine party, that interposed to protect them, and sent them away from the city under convoy of two Carthaginian triremes. (Liv. 30.25; Appian, App. Pun. 34.) According to Appian (Ib. 49), he was one of the ambassadors sent to Scipio to sue for peace after tho battle of Zama (B. C. 202)). Livy also mentions him as one of the envoys (all men of the highest rank at Carthage) deputed to Rome to fix the terms of the final treaty of peace on that occasion, and attributes the success of the negotiation in great measure to his personal influence and ability. (Liv. 30.42). On his return to Carthage he is again mentioned as taking part against Hannibal in the discussions concerning the peace. (Id. ib. 44.)
tidings of victory. He arrived thither early in B. C. 209, and, after reporting to the senate and the people the fall of New Carthage, and delivering up his prisoners-among whom were Mago, the governor of the city, fifteen members of the great council of Carthage, and two members of the council of elders,-he rejoined Scipio at Tarraco. (Plb. 10.18, 19, 37; Liv. 26.48, 51, 27.7.) Throughout the war in Spain, Sicily, and Africa, Laelius acted as confidential legatus to his friend, nor until B. C. 202, when the senate appointed him Scipio's quaestor extraordinary, had he any official rank or station. (Liv. 30.33.) At the battle of Baecula, in the upper valley of the Guadalquivir, he commanded Scipio's left wing, B. C. 208 (Plb. 10.39; Liv. 27.18; Appian, Hispan. 25, 26); and in B. C. 206, a stormingparty, when Illiturgi, on the right bank of the Baetis, was taken (Liv. 28.19, 20); a detachment of the fleet, when Gades was expected to revolt, with which he defeated the Punic admiral Adhe
Laeto'rius 6. L. Laetorius, plebeian aedile in B. C. 202, was obliged to abdicate as his election was declared invalid on religious grounds. (Liv. 30.39.)

Li'cinus, Po'rcius 3. L. Porcius Licinus, the son of No. 2, dedicated, as duumvir in B. C. 181, the temple to Venus Erycina, which his father had vowed in the Ligurian war. This temple, which was called after the celebrated temple of Venus at Eryx in Sicily, was situated outside the Colline gate, and is mentioned by Livy, by prolepsis, as in existence as early as the year B. C. 202. (Liv. 30.38.) Licinus was appointed in B. C. 172 to conduct to Brundusium from the docks at Rome the fleet which was to convey to Greece the troops destined for the war against Perseus. (Liv. 40.34; Strab. vi. p.272; Ov. Fast. 4.874; App. BC 1.93; Liv. 42.27.)
