he name " Arcadius, qui et Charisius," and by Joannes Lydus (de Magist. Pop. Rom. 1.100.14), he is cited by the name Aurelius simply. The name Charisius was not uncommon in the decline of the empire, and, when it occurs on coins, it is usually spelled Carisius, as if it were etymologically connected with Carus rather than xa/ris. The jurist, according to Panziroli (de Clar. Jur. Interpp. pp. 13, 59), was the same with the Arcadius to whom Carus, Carinus, and Numerianus directed a rescript, A. D. 283. (Cod. 9. tit. 11. s. 4.) There is a constitution of Diocletianus and Maximianus, addressed, A. D. 300-2, to Arcadius Chresimus. (Cod. 2. tit. 3. s. 27.) Panziroli would here read Charisius for Chresimus, and would also identify our Charisius with the Carisius (Vat. M. S.; vulg. lect. Charissimus), praeses of Syria, to whom was addressed (A. D. 290) an earlier constitution of the same emperors. (Cod. 9. tit. 41. s. 9.) These identifications, however, though not absolutely impossible, rest

Nemesia'nus, M. Aure'lius Oly'mpius who, in all probability, was a native of Africa, since he is styled in MSS. Poeta Carthaginiensis, and is referred to as Aurelius Carthaginiensis by Hincmar archbishop of Rheims (A. D. 845), flourished at the court of the emperor Carus (A. D. 283), carried off the prize in all the poetical contests of the day (omnibus coronis [not coloniis] illustratus emicuit), and was esteemed second to the youthful prince Numerianus alone, who nonoured him so far as permit him to dispute, and, of course, to yield to the palm of verse. Works Vopiscus, to whom we are indebted for these particulars, informs us that he was the author of poems upon fishing, hunting, and aquatics (a(lieutika/, kunhgetika/, nautika/, unless we read i)ceutika/), all of which have perished except for short fragments, with the exception of a fragment of the Cynegetica. De Aucupio and Laudes Herculis Two short fragments, De Aucupio, which, with their history, will be found in the Poe

Numeria'nus, M. Aurelius the younger of the two sons of the emperor Carus, and his companion in the expedition against the Persians, undertaken in A. D. 283. After the death of his father, which happened in the following year, he was, without opposition, acknowledged as joint emperor with his brother Carinus. The idle fears of the army compelled him to abandon all hopes of prosecuting a campaign commenced with so much glory, and of extending the conquests already achieved. For terrified by the mysterious fate of Carus [CARUS], which they regarded as a direct manifestation of the wrath of heaven, and an evident fulfilment of the ancient prophecy which fixed the river Tigris as the limit of the Roman sways the soldiers refused to advance. Yielding to their superstitious terrors, Numerianus commenced a retreat in the very hour of victory, and slowly retraced his steps towards the Thracian Bosporus. During the greater part of the march, which lasted for eight months, he was duly confined
