Ahenobarbus 14. Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus, praetor in B. C. 54, presided at the second trial of M. Coelius. (Cic. ad Qu. Fr. 2.13.) He may have been the son of No. 5.
Ambi'orix a chief of the Eburones, a Gallic people between the Meuso and the Rhine, who were formerly tributary to the Aduatici, but were delivered by Caesar from the payment of this tribute. In B. C. 54, Caesar placed a legion and five cohorts, under the command of Q. Titurius Sabinus and L. Aurunculeius Cotta, in the territories of the Eburones for the purpose of passing the winter there. But fifteen days after they had been stationed in their territories, the Eburones revolted at the instigation of Ambiorix and Cativolcus, another chief, besieged the Roman camp, and destroyed almost all the Roman troops, after they had been induced by Ambiorix to leave their camp under promise of a safe-conduct. After their destruction Ambiorix hastened to the Aduatici and Nervii, and induced them, in conjunction with the Eburones, to attack the camp of Q. Cicero, who was stationed for the winter among the Nervii. The firmness of Cicero, and the defeat of the Gauls on the arrival of Caesar, compel
Ani'cius 2. T. Anicius, who said that Q. Cicero had given him a commission to purchase a place in the suburbs for him, B. C. 54. (Cic. ad Qu. Fr. 3.1.7.)
Apollo'nius 7. A tyrant of a town in Mesopotamia called Zenodotia, which was destroyed by M. Crassus in B. C. 54, because 100 Roman soldiers had been put to death there. (Plut. Crass. 17; Pseudo-Appian, Parth. p. 27, ed. Schweigh.) [L.S]
Arbu'scula a celebrated female actor in Pantomimes, whom Cicero speaks of in B. C. 54 as having given him great pleasure. (Ad Alt. 4.15; Hor. Serm. 1.10. 76.)
C. Arpineius a Roman knight, a friend of Q. Titurius, sent to have a conference with Ambiorix, B. C. 54. (Caes. Gal. 5.27, &c.)
Artavasdes (*)Artaoua/sdhs or *)Artaba/sdhs), ARTAUASDES (*)Artaoua/sdhs), or ARTABAZES (*)Artaba/zhs), called by the Armenian historians, Artawazt. 1. King of the Greater Armenia, succeeded his father Tigranes I(II). In the expedition of Crassus against the Parthians, B. C. 54, Artavasdes was an ally of the Romans; but when Orodes, the king of Parthia, invaded Media, and Artavasdes was unable to obtain assistance from the Romans, he concluded a peace with the Parthian king, and gave his sister or daughter in marriage to Pacorus, the son of Orodes. When Pacorus subsequently invaded Syria, in B. C. 51, Artavasdes threatened a descent upon Cappadocia; and Cicero, who was then governor of Cilicia, made preparations to meet him; but the defeat of Pacorus put a stop to his designs. (Plut. Crass. 19, 21, 22, 33; D. C. 40.16; Cic. Att. 5.20, 21, ad Fam. 15.2, 3.) We next hear of Artavasdes in Antony's campaign against the Parthians in B. C. 36. Artavasdes joined the Romans, as he wished to
Q. A'trius was left on the coast in Britain to take care of the ships, B. C. 54. while Caesar himself marched into the interior of the country. (Caes. Gal. 5.9, 10.)
nn (Gesch. Roms, iii. p. 128) conjectures, that she was the daughter of M. Aurelius Cotta and Rutilia Compp. Cic. Att. 12.20), and that C. M. and L. Cottae, who were consuls in B. C. 75, 74, and 65 respectively, were her brothers. She carefully watched over the education of her children (Dial. de Orat. 28; comp. D. C. 44.38), and always took a lively interest in the success of her son. She appears to have constantly lived with him; and Caesar on his part treated her with great affection and respect. Thus, it is said, that on the day when he was elected Pontifex Maximus, B. C. 63, he told his mother, as she kissed him upon his leaving his house in the morning to proceed to the comitia, that he would not return home except as Pontifex Maximus. (Suet. Jul. 13.) It was Aurelia who detected Clodius in the house of her son during the celebration of the mysteries of the Bona Dea in B. C. 62. (Plut. Caes. 9, 10; Suet. Jul. 74.) She died in B. C. 54, while her son was in Gaul. (Suet. Jul. 26.)
