Anuli'nus, P. Cornelius one of the generals of Severus, gained a battle over Niger at Issus, A. D. 194. He afterwards commanded one of the divisions of the army which Severus sent against Adiabene, A. D. 197. He was consul in A. D. 199. (D. C. 74.7, 75.3.)
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Vologeses IV. (search)
Arsaces Xxix. or Vologeses IV. VOLOGESES IV., probably ascended the throne in the reign of Commodus. In the contest between Pescennius Niger and Severus for the empire, A. D. 193, the Parthians sent troops to the assistance of the former ; and accordingly when Niger was conquered, Severus marched against the Parthians. He was accompanied by a brother of Vologeses. His invasion was quite unexpected and completely successful. He took Ctesiphon after an obstinate resistance in A. D. 199, and gave it to his soldiers to plunder, but did not permanently occupy it. Herodian appears to be mistaken in saying that this happened in the reign of Artabanus. (Herodian. 3.1, 9, 10; D. C. 75.9; Spartian. Sever. cc. 15, 16.) Reimar (ad Dio Cass. l.c.) supposes that this Vologeses is the same Vologeses, son of Sanatruces, king of Armenia, to whom, Dio Cassius tells us, that Severus granted part of Armenia; but the account of Dio Cassius is very confused. On the death of Vologeses IV., at the beginning

Crispus, Ju'lius a distinguished tribune of the praetorians, put to death by Septimius Severus during the Parthian war (A. D. 199), because, being wearied of the hardships of the campaign, he had quoted as a sort of pasquinade on the ambitious projects of the emperor the lines in Virgil from the speech of Drances (Aen. 11.372), " Scilicet, ut Turno contingat regia conjux, Nos, animae viles, inhumata infletaque turba, Sternamur campis .... " a fact of no great importance in itself, except in so far as it corroborates the accounts of Spartianus, regarding the vindictive cruelty of Severus in all matters affecting his personal dignity. (D. C. 75.10; comp. Spartian. Sever. 14.) [W.R]

. It is probably to the commentaries of Eudoxius, Leontius, and Patricius on the three earlier codes that Justinian (Const. Tanta, ยง 9) alludes, when he says of them " optimam sui memoriam in Legibus reliquerunt," for the imperatorial constitutions were often called Leges, as distinguished from the Jus of the jurists. In Basil, ii. p. 614, Thalelaeus, who survived Justinian, classes Eudoxius among the older teachers, and cites his exposition of a constitution of Severus and Antoninus of A. D. 199, which appears in Cod. 2. tit. 12. s. 4. Again, in Basil. i. pp. 810, 811, is cited his exposition of a constitution of Diocletian and Maximinian, of A. D. 193, which appears in Cod. 2. tit. 4. s. 18, with the interpolated words excepto adulterio. In both these passages, the opinion of Heros Patricius is preferred to that of Eudoxius. In like manner, it appears from the scholiast in the fifth volume of Meerlnian's Thesaurus (JCtorum Graecorum Commentarii, p. 56 ;Basil., ed. Heimbach, i. p.

Fronto, M. Aufi'dius was the grandson of Cornelius Fronto, the orator, by his ouly daughter, who married Aufidius Victorinus. Aufidius Fronto was consul A. D. 199, and in 217 was nominated governor of Africa, but at the solicitation of the provincials was removed by Macrinus to Asia. This appointment also was cancelled by the emperor, who offered the usual pecuniary compensation, which was refused. A monument discovered at Pesaro, erected by this individual in memory of his son, bears the following inscription :--M. AUFIDIO FRONTONI PRONEPOTI M. CORNELI FRONTONIS ORATORIS CONSULIS MAGISTRI IMPERATORUM LUCI ET ANTONINI NEPOTIS AUFIDI VICTORINI PRAEFECTI URBI BIS CONSULIS FRONTO CONSUL FILIO DULCISSIMO. (D. C. 78.22; Orelli, Inscrip. n. 1176.)

t affection. Of his parents and ancestors we know nothing whatsoever, for the story that he was descended by the mother's side from Plutarch is a mere modern fabrication; but we read of a brother with whom he lived on the most cordial terms, and who rose to high office under Antoninus Pius. By his wife, Gratia or Cratia, who died when he was far advanced in life, he had an only daughter, who married Aufidius Victorinus, by whom she had three sons, one of whom was M. Aufidius Fronto, consul A. D. 199, the individual who erected a monument at Pesaro, the inscription on which is given in the article below. The precise date of Fronto's death is not recorded, but the latest of his epistles belongs to the year A. D. 166. Up to a recent period no work of Fronto was known to be in existence, with the exception of a corrupt and worthless tract entitled De Differentiis Vocabulorum, and a few very short fragments scattered over the pages of Aulus Gellius and other Latin grammarians. But about
Laetus was one of the lieutenants of Septimius Severus in the campaign against the Arabians and Parthians, A. D. 195; and a few years afterwards (A. D. 199) gained great renown by his gallant and successful defence of Nisibis against a sudden attack headed by Vologaesus. Notwithstanding this good service, and the high reputation which he enjoyed both as a statesman and a general, he was put to death by the emperor, who had become jealous of his popularity with the soldiers. (D. C. 75.2, 9, 10.) [W.R]
