owning dependence on the Roman state, while such as have attempted to assert their independence have been overpowered. At the present moment both Maurusia and much of the rest of Africa have fallen to the portion of JubaFrom this expression we may gather that Strabo wrote this 6th Book of his Geography during the life-time of Juba, and, as we shall presently see, about A. D. 18; while he did not compile the 17th Book till after Juba's death, which must have taken place before A. D. 21. See M. l' Abbé Sevin, Rech. sur la Vie, &c., de Juba, Ac. des Inscr. et Belles- Lettres, vol. iv. Mém. p. 462. on account of his good will and friendship towards the Romans. The like things have taken place in Asia. At first it was governed by kings who were dependent on the Romans, and afterwards when their several lines of succession failed, as of that of the kings Attalus,Attalus III., king of Pergamus, died 133 B.

to him in c. 2, respecting Pompey's triumph on his return from Africa. He was held in high estimation by Pomponius Atticus, but seems not to have been so highly esteemed as a writer by Cicero. Verrius Flaccus,See end of B. iii. L. Piso,See end of B. ii. Cornelius Valerianus,Of this writer nothing seems to be known. He probably flourished in the reign of Tiberius or Caligula. Cato the Censor,See end of B. iii. Fenestclla,A Roman historian, who flourished in the reign of Augustus, and died A. D. 21, in the seventieth year of his age. His great work was called "Annales," and extended to at least twenty-two books, and seems to have contained much minute, though not always accurate, information with regard to the internal affairs of the city; only a few fragments remain, which bear reference to events subsequent to the Carthaginian wars. He is also thought to have written a work called "Epitoma." A treatise was published at Vienna, in 1510, in two Books, "On the Priesthood and Magistracy of

Aug. 31: Pompei quoque statuam contra theatri eius regiam (the middle door of the scaena, Jord. FUR p. 23) marmoreo iano superposuit). Cf. also CIL vi. 32323. 157 (acta lud. saec. Aug.). It was burned in 21 A.D. (Hier. a. Abr. 2037) and since there was no surviving member of the family able to restore it, this was undertaken by Tiberius (Tac. Ann. iii. 72; Veil. ii. 130; Sen. de cons. ad Marc. 22. 4), who set up a bronze statue of Sejanus within the building (Cass. Dio lvii. 21. 3). Tiberius did not complete the work of restoration (Suet. Tib. 47; Cal. 21), or, according to another statement, did not dedicate it (Tac. Ann. vi. 45). The completion of the work is ascribed to Caligula (Suet. Cal. 21)

Blandus, Rube'llius whose grandfather was only a Roman knight of Tibur, married in A. D. 33 Julia, the daughter of Drusus, the son of the emperor Tiberius, whence Blandus is called the progener of Tiberius. (Tac. Ann. 6.27, 45.) Rubellius Plautus, who was put to death by Nero, was the offspring of this marriage. [PLAUTUS.] There was in the senate in A. D. 21 a Rubellius Blandus, a man of consular rank (Tac. Ann. 3.23, 51), who is probably the same as the husband of Julia, though Lipsius supposes him to be the father of the latter. We do not, however, find in the Fasti any consul of this name. There is a coin, struck under Augustus, bearing the inscription C. RVBELLIVS BLANDVS HIVIR A. A. A. F. F., that is, Auro Argento Aeri Flando Ferinndo, which is probably to be referred to the father of the above-mentioned Blandus. (Eckhel, v. p. 295.)

s a causeway known by the name of the Long Bridges. Here his army was attacked and nearly destroyed by Arminius; but he eventually defeated the Germans with great slaughter, and reached the Rhine in safety. [ARMINIUS.] On account of this victory, he received the insignia of a triumph. (Tac. Ann. 1.31, 32, 56, 60, 63-68, 72.) This is the last military command which Caecina appears to have held. He is mentioned in A. D. 20 as the author of a proposition in the senate that an altar should be erected to the goddess of Vengeance, on account of the suppression of Piso's conspiracy; and again in A. D. 21, as proposing that the governors of provinces should not be allowed to take their wives with them into their provinces. Tacitus gives a speech of his on the latter of these motions, in which he states, that he had always lived in harmony with his wife, who had borne him six children. His motion, which was opposed by Valerius Messallinus and Drusus, was not carried. (Tac. Ann. 3.18, 33, 34.)

Cursor, Cae'lius a Roman eques in the time of Tiberius, who was put to death by the emperor, in A. D. 21, for having falsely charged the praetor Magius Caecilianus with high treason. (Tac. Ann. 3.37.) [L.S]
ropensities, obtained the nickname of Castor. (D. C. 57.14.) In the following year Tiberius sent him to Illyricum, not only to teach him the art of war, and to make him popular with the soldiery, but to remove him from the dissipations of the city. It is not easy to determine the exact scene of his operations, but he succeeded in fomenting dissension among the Germanic tribes, and destroyed the power of Maroboduus. For these successes an ovation was decreed to him by the senate. In the year A. D. 21, he was consul a second time, and the emperor was his colleague. In A. D. 22, he was promoted to the still higher dignity of the " tribunicia potestas," a title devised by Augustus to avoid the obloquy attending the name of king or dictator. By this title subsequent emperors counted the years of their reign upon their coins. It rendered the power of intercession and the sacrosanct character of tribunus plebis compatible with patrician birth. To confer it upon Drusus was clearly to point him
