w, who conveyed him to Argos, where he was brought up. When he had reached the age of twenty, he gained possession of his native city by the help of some Argians, and the cooperation of the remainder of his party in Sicyon itself, without loss of life, and deprived the usurper Nicocles of his power, B. C. 251. (Comp. Plb. 2.43.) Through the influence of Aratus, Sicyon now joined the Achaean league, and Aratus himself sailed to Egypt to obtain Ptolemy's alliance, in which he succeeded. In B. C. 245 he was elected general (strathgo/s) of the league, and a second time in 243. In the latter of these years he took the citadel of Corinth from the Macedonian garrison, and induced the Corinthian people to join the league. It was chiefly through his instrumentality that Megara, Troezen, Epidaurus, Argos, Cleonae, and Megalopolis, were soon afterwards added to it. It was about this time that the Aetolians, who had made a plundering expedition into Peloponnesus, were stopped by Aratus at Pelle

Bulbus, C. Ati'lius was consul in B. C. 245, a second time in 235, and censor in 234. In his second consulship, in which he had T. Manlius Torquatus for a colleague, the temple of Janus was closed for the first time after the reign of Numa. (Fast. Capit.; Eutrop. 2.3; Oros. 4.12; Plut. Num. 20; comp. Liv. 1.19.)
Bu'teo 2. M. Fabius Buteo, M. F. M. N., brother apparently of the preceding, was consul B. C. 245. Florus says (2.2. §§ 30, 31), that he gained a naval victory over the Carthaginians and afterwards suffered shipwreck; but this is a mistake, as we know from Polybius, that the Romans had no fleet at that time. In 216 he was elected dictator without a master of the knights, in order to fill up the vacancies in the senate occasioned by the battle of Cannae: he added 177 new members to the senate, and then laid down his office. (Liv. 23.22, 23; Plut. Fab. Max. 9.) We learn from Livy, who calls him the oldest of the ex-censors, that he had filled the latter office; and it is accordingly conjectured that he was the colleague of C. Aurelius Cotta in the censorship, B. C. 241. In the Fasti Capitolini the name of Cotta's colleague has disappeare
Nealces (*Nea/lkhs), a painter who flourished in the time of Aratus, B. C. 245. Plutarch relates that, when Aratus was destroying the pictures of the tyrants, Melanthius's picture of Aristratus was saved by the intercession of Nealces, who painted over with a black colour the figure of Aristratus, but left the rest of the picture uninjured (Plut. Arat. 13). Pliny mentions with high praise his Venus and his naval battle between the Egyptians and the Persians (H. N. 35.11. s. 40, §§ 36, 41). A curious story is told of another of his pictures by Pliny (35.10. s. 36.20). His daughter Alexandria was also a painter (Didymus, ap. Clem. Alex. Strom. iv. p. 381c.) His colour-grinder Erigonus also became a distinguished painter. [
