A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), (search)
son of Lucius, and was de scended from a very obscure family. At the age of twenty he studied at Apollonia in Illyria, together with young Octavius, afterwards Octavianus and Augustus. After the murder of J. Caesar in B. C. 44, Agrippa was one of those intimate friends of Octavius, who advised him to proceed immediately to Rome. Octavius took Agrippa with him, and charged him to receive the oath of fidelity from several legions which had declared in his favour. Having been chosen consul in B. C. 43, Octavius gave to his friend Agrippa the delicate commission of prosecuting C. Cassius, one of the murderers of J. Caesar. At the outbreak of the Perusinian war between Octavius, now Octavianus, and L. Antonius, in B. C. 41, Agrippa, who was then praetor, commanded part of the forces of Octavianus, and after distinguishing himself by skilful manoeuvres, besieged L. Antonius in Perusia. He took the town in B. C. 40, and towards the end of the same year retook Sipontum, which had fallen into
Alexander (*)Ale/candros), a RHODIAN. In the war against Cassius he was at the head of the popular party, and was raised to the office of prytanis, B. C. 43. (Appian, de Bell. Civ. 4.66.) But soon after, he and the Rhodian admiral, Mnaseas, were defeated by Cassius in a sea-fight off Cnidus. (Appian, de Bell. Civ. 4.71.) [L.
A. Allie'nus 2. Was sent by Dolabella, B. C. 43, to bring to him the legions which were in Egypt. On his return from Egypt with four legions, he was surprised by Cassius in Palestine, who was at the head of eight legions. As his forces were so inferior, Allienus joined Cassius. (Appian, App. BC 3.78, 4.59; Cic. Phil. 11.12, 13; Cassius, ap. Cic. Fam. 12.11, 12.) This Allienus may perhaps be the same person as No. 1.
Anna'lis 2. L. Villius Annalis, praetor in B. C. 43, was proscribed by the triumvirs, and betrayed to death by his son. He is probably the same as the L. Villius L. F. Annalis mentioned in a letter of Caelius to Cicero, B. C. 51. (ad Fam. 8.8.) His son was killed shortly afterwards in a drunken brawl by the same soldiers who had killed his father. (Appian, App. BC 4.17; V. Max. 9.11.6.)
Jud. 1.8. §§ 1, 3, 7, 9. §§ 3-5.) After Caesar had left Syria to go against Pharnaces, Antipater set himself to provide for the quiet settlement of the country under the existing government, and appointed his sons Phasaelus and Herod to be governors respectively of Jerusalem and Galilee. (J. AJ 14.9. §§ 1, 2, Bell. Jud. 1.10.4.) His care for the peace and good order of the province was further shewn in B. C. 46, when he dissuaded Herod from his purpose of attacking Hyreanus in Jerusalem [HERODES], and again in B. C. 43 (the year after Caesar's murder), by his regulations for the collection of the tax imposed on Judaea by Cassius for the support of his troops. (Ant. 14.9.5, 11.2, Bell. Jud. 1.10.9, 11.2.) To the last-mentioned year his death is to be referred. He was carried off by poison which Malichus, whose life he had twice saved [MALICHUS], bribed the cup-bearer of Hyrcanus to administer to him. (Ant. 14.11. §§ 2-4, Bell. Jud. 1.11. §§ 2-4.) For his family, see J. AJ 14.

latter collected an army in Campania. Two of Antony's legions shortly afterwards deserted to Caesar; and Antony, towards the end of November, proceeded to Cisalpine Gaul, which had been previously granted him by the senate, and laid siege to Mutina, into which Dec. Brutus had thrown himself. At Rome, meantime, Antony was declared a public enemy, and the conduct of the war against him committed to Caesar and the two consuls, C. Vibius Pansa and A. Hirtius, at the beginning of the next year, B. C. 43. Several battles were fought with various success, till at length, in the battle of Mutina (about the 27th of April, 43), Antony was completely defeated, and obliged to cross the Alps. Both the consuls, however, had fallen, and the command now devolved upon Dec. Brutus. In Gaul Antony was joined by Lepidus with a powerful army, and was soon in a condition to prosecute the war with greater vigour than ever. Meantime, Caesar, who had been slighted by the senate, and who had never heartily esp
Q. Apo'nius was one of the commanders of the troops which revolted, in B. C. 46, from Trebonius, Caesar's lieutenant in Spain. (D. C. 43.29.) Aponius was proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, and put to death. (Appian, App. BC 4.26.)
Appuleius 5. M. Appuleius, was elected augur in B. C. 45, and Cicero pleaded illness as a reason for his absence from the inaugural festival, which seems to have lasted several days. (Cic. Att. 12.13-15.) At the time of Caesar's death, B. C. 44. Appuleius seems to have been quaestor in Asia; and when Brutus crossed over into Greece and Asia, he assisted him with money and troops. (Cic. Phil. 10.11, 13.16; Appian, App. BC 3.63, 4.75.) He was proscribed by the triumvirs, B. C. 43, and fled to Brutus, who placed him over Bithynia. After the death of Brutus, B. C. 42, he surrendered the province to Antony, and was restored by him to his native country. (Appian, App. BC 4.46.)
Appuleius 6. APPULEIUS, proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, escaped with his wife to Sicily. (Appian, App. BC 4.40.) He must be distinguished from No. 5, who was proscribed at the same time. This Appuleius is probably the same as the tribune of the plebs spoken of by Appian. (B. C. 3.93.)

A'quila, L. Po'ntius tribune of the plebs, probably in B. C. 45, was the only member of the college that did not rise to Caesar as he passed by the tribunes' seats in his triumph. (Suet. Jul. Caes. 78.) He was one of Caesar's murderers, and afterwards served as a legate of Brutus at the beginning of B. C. 43 in Cisalpine Gaul. He defeated T. Munatius Plancus, and drove him out of Pollentia, but was killed himself in the battle fought against Antony by Hirtius. He was honoured with a statue. (Appian, App. BC 2.113; D. C. 46.38, 40; Cic. Phil. 11.6, 13.12, ad Fam. 10.33.) Pontius Aquila was a friend of Cicero, and is frequently mentioned by him in his letters. (Ad Fam. 5.2-4, 7.2, 3.)
