Ma'rius 7. L. Marius, L. F., was one of those who subscribed the accusation of Triarius against Scaurus, in B. C. 54 (Ascon. in Cic. Scaur. p. 19, ed. Orelli). He is probably the same as the Marius who was quaestor in B. C. 50, and succeeded C. Sallustius in the government of the province of Syria. (Cic. Fam. 2.17.)
B. C. 58. (Cic. ad Quint. Fr. 1.2, 5, 15.) He belonged at that time to the Senatorian party, since he impeached P. Vatinius, consul in B. C. 47 (Cic. in Vatin. 14); opposed P. Clodius (id. ad Att. 2.12); and was vehement in his invectives against Julius Caesar (Suet. Jul. 23, 49, 73; Schol. Bob. in Cic. pro Sest. p. 297, in Cic. Vatinian. p. 317, 323, Orelli); and attempted to bring in a bill to rescind the acts of his consulate. Before, however, Memmius himself competed for the consulship, B. C. 54, he had been reconciled to Caesar, who supported him with all his interest. (Cic. Att. 4.15, 17; Suet. Jul. 73.) But Memmius soon again offended Caesar by revealing a certain coalition with his opponents at the comitia. (Cic. ad Quint. Fr. 2.15, ad 4Att. 4.16,18.) Memmius was impeached for ambitus, and, receiving no aid from Caesar, withdrew from Rome to Mytilene, where he was living in the year of Cicero's proconsulate. (Cic. ad Quint. Fr. 3.2, 8, ad Fam. 13.19, ad Att. 5.11, 6.1.) Memmius
Me'mmius 9. C. Memmius, son of the preceding by Fausta, daughter of Sulla the dictator, was tribune of the plebs in B. C. 54. He prosecuted A. Gabinius, consul in B. C. 58, for malversation in his province of Syria (Cic. ad Quint. Fr. 3.1. 5, 15, 2. 1, 3. 2, pro Rabir. Post.3; V. Max. 8.1.3), and Domitius Calvinus for ambitus at his consular comitia in B. C. 54 (Cic. ad Quint. Fr. 3.2.3, 3. 2). Memmius addressed the judices in behalf of the defendant at the trial of M. Aemilius Scaurus in the smitia in B. C. 54 (Cic. ad Quint. Fr. 3.2.3, 3. 2). Memmius addressed the judices in behalf of the defendant at the trial of M. Aemilius Scaurus in the same year (Ascon. in Cic. Scaurian. p. 29, Orelli). Memmius was step-son of T. Annius Milo who married his mother after her divorce by C. Memmius (No. 7). (Ascon. I. c.; Cic. pro Sull. 19.) Memmius was consul suffectus in B. C. 34, when he exhibited games in honour of one of the mythic ancestors of the Julian house, Venus Genetrix. (D. C. 49.42.)
Nobi'lior 6. M. Fulvius Nobilior is mentioned by Sallust (Sal. Cat. 17) as one of Catiline's conspirators. He is perhaps the same as the M. Fulvius Nobilior who was condemned in B. C. 54, but for what crime we do not know. (Cic. Att. 4.16.12.)
orter of his opinion in Weichert (De Cassio Parmensi, p. 348, &c.), though some modern scholars, adopting the views of Perizonius, have decided in favour of the authority of Suetonius. The question is fully discussed by Drumann (Geschichte Roms, vol. iv. p. 235), who adheres, on good reasons as it appears to us, to the opinion of Perizonius; but for the arguments adduced on each side of the question we must refer the reader to Drumann. Octavia had been married to Marcellus before the year B. C. 54, for Julius Caesar, who was her great uncle, was anxious to divorce her from Marcellus that she might marry Pompey, who had then just lost his wife, Julia, the only daughter of Caesar. (Suet. Jul. 27.) Pompey, however, declined the proposal, and Octavia's husband continued to be one of the warmest opponents of Caesar. [MARCELLUS, No. 14.] But after the battle of Pharsalia he sued for and easily obtained the forgiveness of the conqueror; and Octavia appears to have lived quietly with her hus
Octavius 10. M. Octavius Cn. F. M. N. (Cic. Fam. 8.2.2), the son of No. 9. He was a friend of Ap. Claudius Pulcher, consul B. C. 54, and accompanied the latter into Cilicia, but left the province before Claudius in order to become a candidate for the aedileship. He was curule aedile B. C. 50 along with M. Caelius; and as both of them were friends of Cicero, they begged the orator, as he was then in Cilicia, to send them panthers for the games they had to exhibit. (Cic. ad Fam. 3.4, ad Att. 5.21, 6.1.21.) On the breaking out of the civil war in B. C. 49, Octavius, true to the hereditary principles of his family, espoused the aristocratical party. He was appointed, along with L. Scribonius Libo, to the command of the Liburnian and Achaean fleets, serving as legate to M. Bibulus, who had the supreme command of the Pompeian fleet. He and Libo did good service to the cause; they defeated Dolabella on the illyrian coast, and compelled C. Antonius to surrender at the island of Coricta (Caes.
Octavius 23. M. Octavius Laenas Curtianus, one of the distinguished men who supplicated the judges on behalf of M. Scaurus, B. C. 54. (Ascon. in Scaur. p. 29, ed. Orelli.)
Opi'mius 6. OPIMIUS, is mentioned as one of the judices by Cicero (Cic. Att. 4.16.6) in B. C. 54. The word which follows Opimius, being either his cobgnomen or the name of his tribe, is corrupt. (See Orelli, ad loc.) This Opimius may be the same as the following.
O'ppius 11. L. Oppius, a Roman eques, was a witness on behalf of Flaccus, whom Cicero defended in B. C. 59. (Cic. pro Flacc. 13.) He is probably the same as the L. Oppius, M. f., whom Cicero recommended to Quintius Gallius, and whom he calls homo mihi familiaris, and famniliarissimus (ad Fazm. 13.43), and also the same as the L. Oppius, whom Cicero recommended to Q. Philippus, proconsul in Asia, B. C. 54 (ad Fam. 13.73, 74).
Pa'ccius 3. M. Paccius, a friend of Atticus, B. C. 54 (Cic. ad Att. 4.16).
