Africa'nus, Ju'lius a celebrated orator in the reign of Nero, seems to have been the son of Julius Africanus. of the Gallic state of the Santoni, who was condemned by Tiberius, A. D. 32. (Tac. Ann. 6.7.) Quintilian, who had heard Julius Africanus, speaks of him and Domitius Afer as the best orators of their time. The eloquence of Africanus was chiefly characterized by vehemence and energy. (Quint. Inst. 10.1.118, 12.10.11, comp. 8.5.15; Dial. de Orat. 15.) Pliny mentions a grandson of this Julius Africanus, who was also an advocate and was opposed to him upon one occasion. (Ep. 7.6.) He was consul suffectus in A. D. 108.

Agrippa, D. Hate'rius called by Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 2.51) the propinquus of Germanicus, was tribune of the plebs A. D. 15, praetor A. D. 17, and consul A. D. 22. His moral character was very low, and he is spoken of in A. D. 32, as plotting the destruction of many illustrious men. (Tac. Ann. 1.77, 2.51, 3.49, 52, 6.4.)
Ahenobarbus 10. Cn. Domitius Cn. N. Ahenobarbus, L. F.' son of the preceding, and father of the emperor Nero. He married Agrippina, the daughter of Germanicus. He was consul A. D. 32, and afterwards proconsul in Sicily. He died at Pyrgi in Etruria of dropsy. His life was stained with crimes of every kind. He was accused as the accomplice of Albucilla of the crimes of adultery and murder, and also of incest with his sister Domitia Lepida, and only escaped execution by the death of Tiberius. When congratulated on the birth of his son, afterwards Nero, he replied that whatever was sprung from him and Agrippina could only bring ruin to the state. (Suet. Nero 5, 6; Tac. Ann. 4.75, 6.1, 47, 12.64; Vell. 2.72; D. C. 58.17.)

A'tticus, Cu'rtius a Roman knight, was one of the few companions whom Tiberius took with him when he retired from Rome to Capreae in A. D. 26. Six years afterwards, A. D. 32, Atticus fell a victim to the arts of Sejanus. (Tac. Ann. 4.58, 6.10.) He is supposed by Lipsius to be the same as the Atticus to whom two of Ovid's Epistles from Pontus (2.4, 7) are addressed.
after his return first lived with his mother, and, when she was exiled, in the house of Livia Augusta. When the latter died, Caligula, then a youth in his sixteenth year, delivered the funeral oration upon her from the Rostra. After this he lived some years with his grandmother, Antonia. Caligula, like his two elder brothers, Nero and Drusus, was hated by Sejanus, but his favour with Tiberius and his popularity as the son of Germanicus saved him. (D. C. 58.8.) After the fall of Sejanus in A. D. 32, when Caligula had just attained his twentieth year Tiberius summoned him to come to Capreae. Here the young man concealed so well his feelings at the injuries inflicted upon his mother and brothers, as well as at the wrongs which he himself had suffered, that he did not utter a sound of complaint, and behaved in such a submissive manner, that those who witnessed his conduct declared, that there never was such a cringing slave to so bad a master. (Suet. Cal. 10; Tac. Annal. 6.20.) But his s

Cotta, Aure'lius 12. AURELIUS COTTA MESSALLINUS, a son of the orator Messalla, who was adopted into the Aurelia gens. In the reign of Tiberius, with whom he was on terms of intimacy, he made himself notorious for the gratuitous harshness and animosity with which he acted on several occasions. This drew upon him an accusation of the most illustrious senators in A. D. 32, for having spoken disrespectfully of Tiberius; but the emperor himself sent a written defence to the senate, which of course procured his acquittal. Tacitus characterises him as nobilis quidem, sed egens ob luxum et per flagitia infamis. (Plin. Nat. 10.27; Tac. Ann. 2.32, 4.20, 5.3, 6.5, &c.) On coins of the Aurelia gens we find the names of M. Cotta and L. Cotta, but there are no means of identifying them with any of the preceding persons. Of the two coins annexed the obverse of the former represents the head of Pallas, the reverse Hercules in a biga drawn by two centaurs ; the obverse of the latter represents the

Flaccus, Vescula'rius a Roman eques in the confidence of the emperor Tiberius, to whom he betrayed Scribonius Libo in A. D. 16. [DRUSUS, No. 10.] It is uncertain whether the Vescularius condemned by Tiberius in A. D. 32 be the same person, some MSS. reading Atticus, others Flaccus, as the cognomen. (Tac. Ann. 2.28, 6.10.) [W.B.D]
La'mia 2. L. Aelius Lamia, the son of the preceding, and the friend of Horace, was consul in A. D. 3. He was appointed by Tiberius governor of Syria, but was never allowed to enter upon the administration of his province. On the death of L. Piso in A. D. 32, Lamia succeeded him in the office of praefectus urbi, but he died in the following year, A. D. 33, and was honoured with a censor's funeral. (D. C. 58.19; Tac. Ann. 6.27.) Two of Horace's odes are addressed to him. (Carm. 1.26, 3.17.)
grippa 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 her memory cursed, because her crimes had not yet been punished, it would appear as if he supposed that she had died before the fall of Sejanus. (Suet. Cl. 1; Tac. Ann. 2.43, 84, iv 1, 40, 6.2; D. C. 57.22, 58.11.)
