Florus, C. Aqui'llius M. F. C. N., con sul B. C. 259, the sixth year of the first Punic war. The province assigned to Florus was Sicily, where he watched the movements of Hamilcar during the autumn and winter months, and remained in the island as proconsul until late in the summer of B. C. 258. He was employed in that year in blockading Mytistratum, a strong hill-fort, which, after a stubborn resistance and severe loss to the Romans, submitted at length to the united legions of Florus and his successor in the consulship, A. Atilius Calatinus [CALATINUS]. Florus triumphed " De Poeneis" on the 5th of October, 258. (Liv. Epit. xvii.; Zonar. 8.11; Plb. 1.24; Oros. ], 24; Fast. Triumph.) [W.B.D]
