Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, CLOACA MAXIMA (search)
characteristic style of the republic; while onwards as far as the forum the roof has been restored in brick-faced concrete of the empire. The channel is here 4.20 metres high and 3.20 wide. Eight branches empty into this section-none of them, as Lanciani notes, from private houses, which must have relied largely on cesspools. Beneath the nave of the basilica Aemilia the channel of the cloaca Maxima has been found crossing it obliquely; this portion had been rebuilt in tufa and travertine in 34 A.D. Originally it appears to have run in the direction of the column of Phocas (TF fig. 10, p. 69), though it must soon have turned westward; but a branch was built (in 78 B.C., as Frank thinks-but did the cloaca at that time already run round the outside of the basilica ?) to connect it with the line of the cloaca as rebuilt (by Agrippa ?), which skirted the basilica on the north-west and south-west, then turned at right angles to the south-west near the shrine of Venus Cloacina, crossed the a

Flaccus, Pompo'nius 2. Pomponius Flaccus, was appointed in A. D. 19 by Tiberius to undertake the administration of Moesia, and to operate against king Rhascupolis, who had killed Cotys, his brother and colleague in the kingdom. Velleius (2.129) gives him very high praise; saying that he was a vir natus ad omnia quae recte facienda sunt, simplicique virtute merens semper, non captans gloriam. He was, however, a friend of Tiberius, with whom, on one occasion, he spent one whole night and two days in uninterrupted drinking. (Suet. Tib. 42.) He died in A. D. 34, as propractor of Syria, where he had been for many years. (Tac. Ann 2.32, 6.27.) Velleius calls him a consular, whence some writers are of opinion that he is the same as L. Pomponius Flaccus, but this opinion is irreconcileable with chronology. (Comp. Ov. ex Pont. 4.9. 75; Masson, Vit. Ovid. ad ann. 769.) [L.S]

La'beo, Pompo'nius governor of the province of Moesia for eight years, in the reign of Tiberius. The emperor, in a letter to the senate, denounced him as guilty of maladministration and other offences. Labeo by a voluntary death anticipated the threatened execution. (A. D. 34.) His wife Paxaea imitated his example. (Tac. Ann. 4.47, 6.29; D. C. 58.24). [C.P.M]

Pe'rsicus, Paulus Fa'bius consul A. D. 34 with L. Vitellius. (D. C. 58.24 ; Tac. Ann. 6.28; Frontin. Aquaed. 102.) This Fabiiis Persicus was notorious for his licentiousness. (Senec. de Benef. 4.31.)

Aulus Persius Flaccus a Roman knight connected by blood and marriage with persons of the highest rank, was born at Volaterrae in Etruria on the 4th of December, during the consulship of L. Vitellius and Fabius Persicus, A. D. 34 (comp. Hierot. Chron. Euscb. an. 2050). His father Flaccus died six years afterwards; his mother, Fulvia Sisennia married as her second husband a certain Fusius belonging to the equestrian order, and within a few years again became a widow. Young Persius received the first rudiments of education in his native town, remaining there until the age of twelve, and then removed to Rome, where he studied grammnar under the celebrated Remmius Palaemon, rhetoric under Verginius Flavius. When approaching the verge of manhood he became the pupil of Cornutus the Stoic, who opened tip to him the first principles of mental science, and speedily impressed upon his plastic mind a stamp which gave a character to his whole subsequent career. To this master, who proved in very t
Philippus (*Fi/lippos), son of HEROD the Great, king of Judaea, by his wife Cleopatra, was appointed by his father's will tetrarch of the districts of Gaulonitis, Trachonitis, and Batanaea, the sovereignty of which was confirmed to him by the decision of Augustus. He continued to reign over the dominions thus entrusted to his charge for the space of thirty-seven years (B. C. 4 - A. D. 34), a period of uniform tranquillity, during which his mild and equitable rule made him universally beloved by his subjects. He founded the city of Caesareia, surnamed Paneas, but more commonly known as Caesareia Philippi, near the sources of the Jordan, which he named in honour of Augustus, while he bestowed the name of Julias upon the town of Bethsaida, which he had greatly enlarged and embellished. Among other edifices he erected there a magnificent monument, in which his remains were deposited after his death. As he left no children, his dominions were after his decease annexed to the Roman province

Tuscus, Corne'lius an historian, and described by Seneca as a man "quam improbi animi, tam infelicis ingenii," accused Mamercus Aemilius Scaurus of majestas in A. D. 34. (Senec. Suas. 2, sub fin.; Tac. Ann. 6.29.)
