A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Vologeses III. (search)
Arsaces Xxviii or Vologeses III. VOLOGESES III., probably a son of the preceding, began to reign according to coins (Eckhel, iii. p. 538), A. D. 149. During the reign, of Antoninus, he continued at peace with the Romans; but on the death of this emperor, the long threatened war at length broke out. In A. D. 162, Vologeses invaded Armenia, and cut to pieces a Roman legion, with its commander Severianus, at Elegeia, in Armenia. He then entered Syria, defeated Atidius Cornelianus, the governor ofeign till shortly before the death of Commodus (A. D. 192); but this is highly improbable, as Vologeses II. ascended the throne about A. D. 122, and must on this supposition have reigned nearly seventy years. If Vologeses III. began to reign in A. D. 149, as we have supposed from Eckhel, it is also improbable that he should have been the Vologeses spoken of in the reign of Caracalla, about A. D. 212. We are therefore inclined to believe that there was one Vologeses more than has been mentioned
Nicon (*Ni/kwn), an architect and geometrician of Pergamus in Mysia, the father of the physician Galen. (Suid. s. v. *Ga/*Lhnos; Joann. Tzetz. Chil. 12.9.) He himself superintended the early education of his son, by whom he is highly praised in several places, not only for his knowledge of astronomy, grammar, arithmetic, and various other branches of philosophy, but also for his patience, justice, benevolence, and other virtues. (Galen, De Dignosc. et Cur. Animi Morb. 100.8, vol. v. p. 41, &c., De Prob. et Prav. Aliment. Succ. 100.1, vol. vi. p. 755, &c., De Ord. Libror. suor. vol. xix. p. 59.) He died when his son was in his twentieth year, A. D. 149, 150. (l.c. vol. vi. p. 756.) [W.A.
Orfitus 7. SER. SCIPIO ORFITUS, consul A. D. 149, with Q. Nonius Priscus. He is perhaps the same as the Orfitus who was praefectus urbi in the reign of Antoninns Pius (Capitol. Anton, Pius, 8). This emperor reigned from A. D. 138 to 161.
