n at the foot of the Grampian hills, which put him in possession of the whole of Britain as far north as the northern boundary of Perth and Argyle. His first campaign (A. D. 78) was occupied in the reconquest of Mona (Anglesea), and the Ordovices (North Wales), the strongholds of the Druids; and the remainder of this year, with the next, was given to making the before-mentioned arrangements for the security of the Roman dominion in the already conquered parts of Britain. The third campaign (A. D. 80) carried him northwards to the Taus, * As to whether the Taus was the Solway Frith or the Frith of Tay, see Chalmers' Caledonia. probably the Solway Frith; and the fourth (A. D. 81) was taken up in fortifying and taking possession of this tract, and advancing as far north as the Friths of Clyde and Forth. In the fifth campaign (A. D. 82), he was engaged in subduing the tribes on the promontory opposite Ireland. In the sixth (A. D. 83), he explored with his fleet and land forces the coast of
E'vodus (*Eu)/odos), a distinguished engraver of gems under the emperor Titus, A. D. 80. A beryl by him, bearing the head of Titus's daughter Julia, is preserved at Florence. (Bracci, Tab. 73; Müller, Denkm. d. alt. Kunst, T. lxix. No. 381.) [P
La'mia 3. L. Aelius Lamia Aemilianus, belonged originally, as we see from the last name, to the gens Aemilia, and was adopted into the gens Aelia. He was consul suffectus in A. D. 80 in the reign of Titus, and was originally married to Domitia Longina, the daughter of Corbulo; but during the lifetime of Vespasian he was deprived of her by Domitian, who first lived with her as his mistress and subsequently married her. [DOMITIA LONGINA.] Lamia was put to death by Domitian after his accession to the throne. (D. C. 66.3; Suet. Dom. 1, 10; Juv. 4.154.) Lamia's full name was L. Aelius Plautius Lamia.

ndustry displayed by Loyd and Dodwell in adjusting the chronology of Martial, but the recent labours of Clinton are much more satisfactory. It is clear from the introductory dedication and notices in prose and verse, that the different books were collected and published by the author, sometimes singly and sometimes several at one time. The " Liber de Spectaculis" and the first nine books of the regular series involve a great number of historical allusions, extending from the games of Titus (A. D. 80) down to the return of Domitian from the Sarmatian expedition, in January, A. D. 94. The second book could not have been written until after the commencement of the Dacian war (2.2), that is, not before A. D. 86, nor the sixth until after the triumph over the Dacians and Germans (A. D. 91); the seventh was written while the Sarmatian war, which began in A. D. 93, was still in progress, and reaches to the end of that year. The eighth book opens in January, A. D. 94, the ninth also refers to
birth is not known, and we can only determine it by approximation. At the time of his martyrdom, to which various dates are assigned, he had been a Christian eighty-six years. Now if we adopt for the present Tillemont's date of his martyrdom, A. D. 166, and suppose Polycarp to have been of Christian parents, or at least educated from childhood in the Christian faith, and so interpret the eighty-six years, as several eminent critics do, of the term of his natural life, his birth will fall in A. D. 80; but if with other critics we suppose him to have been converted at a riper age, and compute the eighty-six years from the time of his conversion, his birth must be placed at a considerably earlier period. A vague passage in the Latin text of Polycarp's epistle to the Philippians (c. xi.), which we think merely indicates that the church at Smyrna was not in existence when the Apostle Paul wrote his epistle to the Philippians, has been adduced to prove that Polycarp was born before that time

scription of them in a letter addressed to Tacitus by the younger Plinius. [TACITUS.] Titus endeavoured to repair the ravages of this great eruption : he sent two consulars with money to restore the ruined towns, and he applied to this purpose the property of those who had been destroyed, and had left no next of kin. He also went himself to see the ravages which had been caused by the eruption and the earthquakes. During his absence a fire was burning at Rome for three days and three nights A. D. 80 : it destroyed the Capitol, the library of Augustus, the theatre of Pompeius, and other public buildings, besides many houses. The emperor declared that he should consider all the loss as his own, and he set about repairing it with great activity : he took even the decorations of the imperial residences, and sold them to raise money. The eruption of Vesuvius was followed by a dreadful pestilence, which called for fresh exertions on the part of the benevolent emperor. In this year he compl
