lla, who throughout his education seems to have watched with great care and to have exerted great influence over him. He studied philosophy (the usual education of a Roman of higher rank) from his earliest youth at Marseilles. His first military service was under Suetonius Paulinus in Britain (A. D. 60), in the relation of Contubernalis. (See Dict. of Ant. p. 284a.) Hence he returned to Rome, was married to Domitia Decidiana, and went the round of the magistracies; the quaestorship in Asia (A. D. 63), under the proconsul Salvius Titianus, where his integrity was shewn by his refusal to join the proconsul in the ordinary system of extortion in the Roman provinces; the tribunate and the praetorship,--in Nero's time mere nominal offices, filled with danger to the man who held them, in which a prudent inactivity was the only safe course. By Galba (A. D. 69) he was appointed to examine the sacred property of the temples, that Nero's system of robbery (Sueton. Ner. 32) might be stopped. In t
Albi'nus procurator of Judaea, in the reign of Nero, about A. D. 63 and 64, succeeded Festus, and was guilty of almost every kind of crime in his govenrment. He pardoned the vilest criminals for money, and shamelessly plundered the provincials. He was succeeded by Florus. (J. AJ 20.8.1; Bell. Jud. 2.14.1.) The LUCEIUS ALBINUS mentioned below may possibly have been the same person.

length besieged him in his winter-quarters. Paetus, alarmed at his situation, agreed with Vologeses, that Armenia should be surrendered to the Romans, and that he should be allowed to retire in safety from the country, A. D. 62. Shortly after this, Vologeses sent another embassy to Rome; and Nero agreed to surrender Armenia to Tiridates, provided the latter would come to Rome and receive it as a gift from the Roman emperor. Peace was made on these conditions; and Tiridates repaired to Rome, A. D. 63, where he was received with extraordinary splendour, and obtained from Nero the Armenian crown. (Tac. Ann. 15.1-18, 25-31; D. C. 62.20-23, 63.1-7.) In the struggle for the empire after Nero's death, Vologeses sent ambassadors to Vespasian, offering to assist him with 40,000 Parthians. This offer was declined by Vespasian, but he bade Vologeses send ambassadors to the senate, and he secured peace to him. (Tac. Hist. 4.51.) Vologeses afterwards sent an embassy to Titus, as he was returning
Armenia, and proclaim him king. Tiridates advanced upon Tigranocerta, took this city and Artaxata, and compelled Rhadamistus to fly. Rhadamistus was subsequently killed by his father Pharasmanes. (Tac. Ann. 12.44-51, 13.6, 37.) TIRIDATES I. The brother of Vologeses I., king of the Parthians, was driven out of Armenia by Corbulo, who appointed in his place Tigranes IV., the grandson of king Archelaus, A. D. 60. [TIGRANES IV.] Tiridates subsequently received the crown as a gift from Nero, A. D. 63. [ARSACES XXIII., TIRIDATES I.] Exedares ´╝łArdashes Iii.) An Arsacid (of the younger Armenian branch), was driven out by Chosroes or Khosrew, king of the Parthians. (D. C. 68.17.) According to Moses Chorenensis (2.44-57), Exedares, who is called Ardashes III., was a mighty prince, who humbled the armies of Domitian, but was finally driven out by Trajan. Chosroes placed on the throne in his stead Parthamasiris, a Parthian prince. Exedares reigned during forty-two years, from A. D. 78 to 12

Bola'nus, Ve'ttius commanded a legion under Corbulo in the war against Tigranes in Armenia, A. D. 63, and was appointed governor of Britain in 69, in the place of Trebellius Maximus. In the civil war between Vespasian and Vitellius, Bolanus did not declare in favour of either; and, during his government of the province, he attempted nothing against the Britons, and allowed his troops great licence. But, as his administration was marked by integrity, he was popular in the province. The praises which Statius bestows upon Bolanus in the poem (Silv. 5.2. 34, &c.), addressed to his son Crispinus, must be set down to flattery. (Tac. Ann. 15.3, Hist. 2.65, 97, Agric. 3, 16.)
with a slight wound, he consulted Burrus and Seneca, hoping that they would assist him in carrying his plan into effect; but Burrus refused to take any part in it, and declared that the praetorians were bound to afford their protection to the whole house of the Caesars. In the same manner Burrus opposed Nero's design of murdering his wife Octavia. At length, however, Nero, who had already threatened to deprive Burrus of his post, resolved to get rid of his stern and virtuous officer, and accordingly had him killed by poison, A. D. 63. Tacitus, indeed, states, that it was uncertain whether he died of illness or in consequence of poison, but the authority of other writers leaves no doubt that he was poisoned by the emperor. The death of Burrus was lamented by all who had felt the beneficial influence he had exercised, and the power which Seneca had hitherto possessed lost in Burrus its last supporter. (Tac. Ann. 12.42, 69, 13.2, 20, &c., 14.7, 51, 52; D. C. 52.13; Suet. Nero 35.) [L.S]

Ge'minus, Duce'nnius was appointed by Nero, in A. D. 63, one of the three consulars who had to superintend the public vectigalia and to prosecute those who had before managed them badly. In the reign of Galba he was praefect of the city. (Tac. Ann. 15.18, Hist. 1.14.) [L.S]
Me'mmius 12. C. Memmius Regulus, son, probably, of the preceding, was consul in A. D. 63. (Fasti; Tac. Ann.15.23; Gruter, Inscr. p. 8.)
Monoba'zus ´╝ł*Mono/bazos), was king or tetrarch of Adiabene in A. D. 63, when Tigranes, king of Armenia, invaded his kingdom. Monobazus applied for aid to Vologeses, the Parthian monarch; and the troops of Adiabene and Parthia entered Armenia, and invested its capital, Tigranocerta. Monobazus afterwards accompanied Vologeses to the camp of Corbulo [CORBULO] at Randeia, to negotiate a truce between Parthia and Rome. The sons of Monobazus were in the suite of Tiridates on his visit to Nero in A. D. 66. (Tac. Ann. 15.1, 14; D. C. 62.20, 23, 63.1.) [W.B.
