Corvi'nus, Taurus Stati'lius consul in A. D. 45 with M. Vinucius. (Dio Cass, 60.25; Phlegon, Mirabil. 6.) He is probably the same as the Statilius Corvinus who conspired against the emperor Claudius. (Suet. Cltaud. 13 )

st the Germans, and restored discipline among the troops. The Germans had invaded Gaul, but after severe losses they were compelled by Galba to return to their own country. On the death of Caligula many of his friends urged him on to take possession of the imperial throne, but he preferred living in a private station, and Claudius, the successor of Caligula, felt so grateful to him for this moderation, that he received him into his suite, and showed him very great kindness and attention. In A. D. 45 and 46,, Galba was entrusted with the administration of the province of Africa, which was at the time disturbed by the licentiousness of the Roman soldiers and by the incursions of the neighbouring barbarians. He restored peace, and managed the affairs of the province with great strictness and care, and on his return he was honoured with the ornamenta triumphalia, and with the dignity of three priesthoods ; he became a member of the college of the Quindecimviri, of the sodales Titii, and of

Sabi'nus, Fla'vius 2. Flavius Sabinus, the elder son of the preceding, and the brother of the emperor Vespasian. He is first mentioned in the reign of Claudius, A. D. 45, when he served under Plautius in Britain, along with his brother Vespasian (D. C. 9.20). He afterwards governed Moesia for seven years, and held the important office of praefectus urbis during the last eleven years of Nero's reign. He was removed from this office by Galba, but was replaced in it on the accession of Otho, who was anxious to conciliate Vespasian, who commanded the Roman legions in the East. He continued to retain the dignity under Vitellius, and made the soldiers in the city swear allegiance to the new emperor. But when Vespasian was proclaimed general by the legions in the East, and Antonius Primus and his other generals in the West, after the defeat of the troops of Vitellius, were marching upon Rome, Vitellius, despairing of success, offered to surrender the empire, and to place the supreme power in

Silva'nus, Pompeius consul suffectus under Claudius, A. D. 45 (Fasti),is perhaps the same as the Pompeius or Poppaeus Silvanus, a man of consular rank, who governed Dalmatia at the death of Nero, and is described by Tacitus as rich and aged. He espoused the side of Vespasian, but prosecuted the war with little vigour. He entered Rome along with the other generals of Vespasian, and was appointed by the senate to superintend the loan of money which the state was to obtain from private persons. (Hist. 2.86, 3.50, 4.47.)
Vini'cius 5. M. Vinicius, P. F. M. N., the son of No. 4, was born at Cales, a town in Campania, and is spoken of by Tacitus as " mitis ingenio et comptae facundiae." He was consul in A. D. 30 with C. Cassius Longinus, and it was in this year that the historian Velleius Paterculus dedicated his work to him. [PATERCULUS.] In A. D. 33 Tiberius gave Julia Livilla, the daughter of Germanicus, in marriage to Vinicius; and as Germanicus was by adoption the son of Tiberius, Vinicius is called the progener of Tiberius. Vinicius was consul a second time in the reign of Claudius, A. D. 45, with Taurus Statilius Corvinus. He was put to death by Messalina in the following year, to whom he had become an object of suspicion, because she had previously put to death his wife [JULIA, No. 8], and likewise an object of hatred because he had refused her embraces. (Tac. Ann. 6.15, 45; D. C. 60.25, 27.)
