Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, ARCUS DRUSI (search)
ARCUS DRUSI erected in honour of the younger Drusus after his death in 23 A.D., if the statement in Tacitus (Ann. iv. 9; cf. ii. 83) be correct. Possibly it stood at the north end of the Rostra, as the arch of Tiberius stood at the south.

(Plin. ix. I 6). Later, Augustus is stated to have set up in the temple a statue of the deified Julius with a star above his head (Cass. Dio xlv. 7. I; xlvii. 18. 4; Plin. ii. 93), although some scholars believe that this is a mistake for the temple of divus Iulius in the forum (see Jord. Hermes 1875, 342-343; Gilb. iii. 226). A colossal statue was erected near the temple in honour of Tiberius by fourteen cities of Asia Minor which had been relieved by him after the earthquakes of 17 and 23 A.D., with personifications of them on its base: and a copy of this in relief was found at Puteoli (Tac. ii. 47; iv. 13; Atti Ace. Nap. 1903, 119 sqq.: Rueseh, Guida Mus. Nap. 22-24; CIL x. 1624). A statue of Drusilla was erected in the temple after her death (Cass. Dio, lix. II. 2-3). The forum Iulium was rectangular, about 115 metres long and 30 wide, surrounded by a colonnade and wall. Its main axis ran north-west to south-east, corresponding with that of the curia Iulia which adjoined it at

Apica'ta the wife of Sejanus, was divorced by him, A. D. 23, after she had borne him three children, when he had seduced Livia, the wife of Drusus, and was plotting against the life of the latter. His subsequent murder of Drusus was first disclosed by Apicata. (Tac. Ann. 4.3, 11.) When Sejanus and his children were killed eight years afterwards, A. D. 31, Apicata put an end to her own life. (D. C. 58.11.)

Ca'pito, Luci'lius procurator of Asia in A. D. 23, was accused by the provincials of malversation, and was tried by the senate. (Tac. Ann. 4.15; D. C. 57.23.) [L.S]
Dolabella 10. P. Cornelius Dolabella, a son of No. 9, was proconsul of Africa in the reign of Tiberius, A. D. 23 and 24. In the course of the administration of his province he gained a complete victory over the Numidian Tacfarinas; but although he had formerly been a very great flatterer of Tiberius, yet he did not obtain the ornaments of a triumph, in order that his predecessor in the province of Africa, Junius Blaesius, an uncle of Sejanus, might not be thrown into the shade. In A. D. 27 he joined Domitius Afer in the accusation against his own relative, Quintilius Varus. (Tac. Ann. 3.47, 68, 4.23, &c., 66.)
stimulus of ambition. He turned to Livia, the wife of Drusus, seduced her affections, persuaded the adulteress to become the murderer of her hus band, and promised that he would marry her when Drusus was got rid of. Her physician Eudemus was made an accomplice in the conspiracy, and a poison was administered to Drusus by the eunuch Lygdus, which terminated his life by a lingering disease, that was supposed at the time to be the consequence of intemperance. (Suet. Tib. 62.) This occurred in A. D. 23, and was first brought to light eight years afterwards, upon the information of Apicata, the wife of Sejanus, supported by the confessions, elicited by torture, of Eudemus and Lygdus. (Ann. 4.3, 8, 11.) The funeral of Drusus was celebrated with the greatest external honours, but the people were pleased at heart to see the chance of succession revert to the house of Germanicus. Tiberius bore the death of his only son with a cool equanimity which indicated a want of natural affection. The
Drusus 18. DRUSUS, a son of Germanicus and Agrippina. In A. D. 23, he assumed the toga virilis, and the senate went through the form of allowing him to be a candidate for the quaestorship five years before the legal age. (Tac. Ann. 4.4.) Afterwards, as we learn from Suetonius (Caligula, 12), he was made augur. He was a youth of an unamiable disposition, in which cunning and ferocity were mingled. His elder brother Nero was higher in the favour of Agrippina, and stood between him and the hope of succession to the empire. This produced a deep hatred of Nero in the envious and ambitious mind of Drusus. Sejanus, too, was anxious to succeed Tiberius, and sought to remove out of the way all who from their parentage would be likely to oppose his schemes. Though he already meditated the destruction of Drusus, he first chose to take advantage of his estrangement from Nero, and engaged him in the plots against his elder brother, which ended in the banishment and death of that wretched prince.
Eude'mus 3. A physician at Rome, who was the parnamour of Livia (or Livilla), the wife of Drusus Caesar, the son of the emperor Tiberius, and who joined her and Sejanus in their plot for poisoning her husband, A. D. 23. (Plin. Nat. 29.8; Tac. Ann. 4.3.) IIe was afterwards put to the torture. (Tac. ibid. 100.11.) He is supposed to be the same person who is said by Caelius Aurelianus (de Morb. Acut. 2.38, p. 171) to have been one of the followers of Theniison, and whose medical observations on hydrophobia and some other diseases are quoted by him. He appears to be the same physician who is mentioned by Galen (de Meth. Med. 1.7. vol. x. p. 53) among several others as belonging to the sect of the Methodici.
aughter of Drusus senior and Antonia, and the sister of Germanicus and the emperor Claudius. [See the genealogical table, Vol. I. p. 1076.] In her eleventh year B. C. 1, she was betrothed to C. Caesar, the son of Agrippa and Julia, and the grandson of Augustus. She was subsequently married to her first cousin, Drusus junior, the son of the emperor Tiberius, but was seduced by Sejanus, who both feared and hated Drusus, and who persuaded her to poison her husband, which she accordingly did in A. D. 23. Her guilt was not discovered till the fall of Sejanus, eight years afterwards, A. D. 31, when it was revealed to Tiberius by Apicata, the wife of Sejanus. According to some statements Livia was put to death by Tiberius, but according to others she was spared by the emperor on account of her mother, Antonia, who, however, caused her to be starved to death. Such is the account of Dio Cassius (58.11); but from Tacitus saying (Ann. 6.2) that in A. D. 32 the statues of Livia were destroyed and
