Artaba'zus 3. One of the generals of Artaxerxes I., was sent to Egypt to put down the revolt of Inarus, B. C. 462. He advanced as far as Memphis, and accomplished his object. (Diod. 11.74, 77; comp. Thuc. 1.109; Ctesias, Pers. p. 42, ed. Lion.) In B. C. 450, he was one of the commanders of the Persian fleet, near Cyprus, against Cimon. (Diod. 12.4.)

urrections of the satraps. At the time of his accession his only surviving brother Hystaspes was satrap of Bactria, and Artaxerxes had scarcely punished Artabanus and his associates, before Hystaspes attempted to make himself independent. After putting down this insurrection and deposing several other satraps who refused to obey his commands, Artaxerxes turned his attention to the regulation of the financial and military affairs of his empire. These beneficent exertions were interrupted in B. C. 462, or, according to Clinton, in B. C. 460, by the insurrection of the Egyptians under Inarus, who was supported by the Athenians. The first army which Artaxerxes sent under his brother Achaemenes was defeated, and Achaemenes slain. After a useless attempt to incite the Spartans to a war against Athens, Artaxerxes sent a second army under Artabazus and Megabyzus into Egypt. A remnant of the forces of Achaemenes, who were still besieged in a place called the white castle (leuko/n tei=xos), nea
Cicuri'nus 3. T. Veturius Geminus Cicurinus, consli B. C. 462, with L. Lucretius Triciptinus, defeated the Volsci, and on this account entered the city with the honour of an ovation. (Liv. 3.8, 10; Dionys. A. R. 9.69; Diod. 11.81.)
Euxe'nidae (*Eu)ceni/dai), a noble family among the Aeginetans, celebrated by Pindar in his ode (Nem. vii.) in honour of one of its members, Sogenes, who was victorious in the boys' pentathlon in the 54th Nemead accordingg to Hermann's emendation of the Scholia), that is, in B. C. 462/1. The poet also mentions the victor's father, Thearion, with whom he seems to have been intimate. The ode contains some considerable difficulties, and has been very differently explained by Böckh, Dissen, and Hermann. (Pindar, l.c.; Schol., and Böckh and Dissen's notes; Hermann, de Sogenis Aeginetae Victoria quinquertii Dissertatio, Lips. 1822, Opuscula, vol. iii. p. 22.) [

Publi'cola, Vale'rius 2. P. Valerius Volusi N. Publicola, P. F., son of the preceding, was consul for the first time B. C. 475, with C. Nautius Rutilus, conquered the Veientines and Sabines, and obtained a triumph in consequence. He was interrex in B. C. 462, and consul a second time in 460, with C. Claudius Sabinus Regillensis. In the latter year Publicola was killed in recovering the Capitol, which had been seized by Herdonius. The history of this event is related under HERDONIUS. (Liv. 2.52, 53, 15-19; Dionys. A. R. 9.28, 10.14-17.)

Tere'ntia Gens plebeian. The name was said by Varro to be derived from the Sabine word terenus, which signified " soft" (Macr. 2.9.) The Terentii are mentioned as early as B. C. 462, for the C. Terentillus Arsa, who was tribune of the plebs in that year (Liv. 3.9), must have belonged to the gens; and indeed he is called C. Terentius by Dionysius (10.1). The first member of the gens who obtained the consulship was C. Terentius Varro, who commanded at the fatal battle of Cannae in B. C. 216; and persons of the name continue to be mentioned under the early emperors. The principal surnames of the Terentii during the republic are CULLEO, LUCANUS, and VARRO: there are a few others of less importance, which are given below under TERENTIUS.
Tere'ntius 1. C. Terentius Arsa, called TERENTILLUS by Livy, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 462, proposed that five commissioners should be appointed to draw up a body of laws to define the consular imperium. (Liv. 3.9; Dionys. A. R. 10.1.)
Tricipti'nus 4. L. Lucretius Triciptinus, T. F. T. N., son of No. 2, was consul in B. C. 462 with T. Veturius Geminus Cicurinus. He fell upon the Volscians, when they were returning from an invasion of the Roman territory laden with booty, and nearly annihilated the whole army. He obtained in consequence the honour of a triumph. In the following year he exerted himself warmly to save Kaeso Quintius, who was brought to trial by the tribune Virginius. (Liv. 3.8, 10, 12; Dionys. A. R. 9.69-71.) Triciptinus is mentioned by Dionysius (11.15) as one of the distinguished senators who spoke in favour of the abolition of the decemvirate in B. C. 449.
nother consular army to support his colleague. According to Livy the consuls defeated the Aequians, who withdrew from Mount Algidus into their own territory ; but Dionysius says that the battle was not decisive, which is more in accordance with Livy's subsequent narrative, in which it is stated that the Aequians made incursions into the Roman territory for plunder, which were avenged by Fabius devastating the lands of the Aequians. (Liv. 3.2, 3; Dionys. A. R. 9.61.) Three years afterwards, B. C. 462, Fabius was appointed Praefectus Urbi, while the two consuls were absent from the city. The tribune C. Terentillus Arsa took advantage of the absence of the consuls to propose a rogation for appointing five commissioners, who might draw up laws to limit the power of the consuls. Thereupon Fabius called together the senate and inveighed with such vehemence against the rogation and its author, that even both the consuls could not have inspired greater fear. On the advice of his colleagues Te
