and universal feeling excited in Rome by his death (Tac. Agric. 43), his singular integrity, and the esteem and love which he commanded in all the private relations of life. His life of 55 years (from June 13th, A. D. 37, to the 23rd August, A. D. 93) extends through the reigns of the nine emperors from Caligula to Domitian. He was born at the Roman colony of Forum Julii, the modern Fréjus in Provence. His father was Julius Graecinus of senatorial rank; his mother Julia Procilla, who through soon after (A. D. 84) was recalled by the jealous Domitian. On his return to Rome, he lived in retirement, and when the government either of Asia or Africa would have fallen to him, he considered it more prudent to decline the honour. He died A. D. 93; his death was, as his biographer plainly hints, either immediately caused or certainly hastened by the emissaries of the emperor, who could not bear the presence of a man pointed out by universal feeling as alone fit to meet the exigency of tim

his remains, and desired that his obsequies should be conducted in the simplest manner. Works Ephraem knew no language but his native Syrian, though nearly all his works are translated into Greek, and were formerly held in such high esteem, that portions of them were sometimes read in churches after the gospel for the day. Treatises, epistles, homilies etc. Editions Most of his writings were collected by Gerard Voss, who turned them into Latin, and published them (1) at Rome A. D. 1589-93-97, (2) at Cologne in 1603, (3) at Antwerp in 1619. Voss's edition is in three volumes. The first consists of various treatises, partly on subjects solely theological, as the Priesthood, Prayer, Fasting, &c., with others partly theological and partly moral, as Truth, Anger, Obedience, Envy. The second contains many epistles and addresses to monks, and a collection of apophthegms. The third consists of several treatises or homilies on parts of Scripture and characters in the Old Testament

he capture of Jerusalem by Antiochus Epiphanes in B. C. 170, runs rapidly over the events before Josephus's own time, and gives a detailed account of the fatal war with Rome. (Jos. Vit. 65; Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 3.9; Hieron. Catal. Script. Eccl. 13; Ittigius, Prolegomena; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. v. p. 4; Voss. de Hist. Graec. p. 239, ed. Westermann.) 2. The Jewish Antiquities (*)Ioudai+kh\ a)rxaiologi/a) The Jewish Antiquities (*)Ioudai+kh\ a)rxaiologi/a), in twenty books, completed about A. D. 93, and addressed to EPAPHRODITUS. The title as well as the number of books may have been suggested by the *(Rwmai+kh\ a)rxaiologi/a of Dionysius of Halicarnassus. The work extends from the creation of the world to A. D. 66, the 12th year of Nero, in which the Jews were goaded to rebellion by Gessius Florus. It embraces therefore, but more in detail, much of the matter of the first and part of the second book of the Jewish war. Both these histories are said to have been translated into Hebrew,
end to his own life by poison, and Velleius Paterculus (2.102), though he leaves it uncertain, implies that such was the case, and adds that his death occasioned general joy. It is uncertain whether Lollius bore any cognomen. In an inscription (apud Sigon. et Pigh. ad ann. 732) he is called simply M. Lollius, M. F. Some writers suppose that this surname was Paullinus, because his granddaughter was called Lollia Paullina, and because we find an M. Lollius Paullinus who was consul suffectus A. D. 93; but this is not conclusive evidence, as we know that the Romans frequently added cognomens, and changed them, in the imperial period. In no ancient writer is Lollius mentioned with any surname. Lollius appears to have left two sons, to the eldest of whom Horace addressed two of his Epistles. (Ep. 1.2 and 18). In the latter of these epistles Horace speaks of Lollius having served against the Cantabri in Spain. One of these brothers appears to have obtained the consulship, though his name

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 the same epoch, but may, as Clinton supposes, have been written in A. D. 95. The whole of these were composed at Rome, except the third, which was written during a tour in Gallia Togata. The tenth book was published twice: the first edition was given hastily to the world; the second, that which we now read (10.2), celebrates the arrival of Trajan at Rome, after h

Massa, Bae'bius or BE'BIUS, one of the most infamous informers of the latter end of the reign of Domitian, is first mentioned in A. D. 70, as one of the procurators in Africa, when he betrayed Piso, and is described by the great historian as "jam tune optimo cuique exitiosus." (Tac. Hist. 4.50.) He was afterwards governor of the province of Baetica, which he oppressed so unmercifully, that he was accused by the inhabitants on his return to Rome. The cause of the provincials was pleaded by Pliny the younger and Herennius Senecio, and Massa was condemned in the same year that Agricola died, A. D. 93; but he seems to have escaped punishment by the favour of Domitian; and from this time became one of the informers and great favourites of the tyrant. (Tac. Agric. 45; Plin. Ep. 7.33, comp. 3.4, 6.29 ; Juv. 1.34.)

before the court of the Centumviri (Ep. 1.18--9.23), and before the Roman senate, both on the side of the prosecution, as in the cases of Baebius Massa and Marius Priscus, and for the defence, as in the cases of Julius Bassus and Rufus Varenus (Ep. 6.29). He filled numerous offices in succession. While a young man he served in Syria, as tribunus militum, and was there a hearer of the stoic Euphrates (Ep. 1.10), and of Artemidorus. He was subsequently quaestor Caesaris, praetor in or about A. D. 93 (Ep. 3.11), and consul A. D. 100, in which year he wrote his laneqyricus, which is addressed to Trajanus (Ep. 3.13). In A. D. 103 he was appointed propraetor of the province Pontica (Ep. 10.77), where he did not stay quite two years. Among his other functions he also discharged that of curator of the channel and the banks of the Tiber (Ep. 5.15, and an inscription in Gruter, p. 454. 3). Plinius was twice married. His second wife was Calpurnia, the granddaughter of Calpurnius Fabatus, and
Priscus a friend of the younger Pliny, who has addressed several of his letters to him; one on the death of Martial, another respecting the health of Fannia, &c. (Ep. 2.13, 3.21, 6.8, 7.8, 19). Pliny himself nowhere in the letters mentions his gentile name, but we find him called in the superscription of one of the letters, Cornelius Priscus : if this superscription is correct, he is probably the same as the Cornelius Priscus, who was consul in A. D. 93 [see below]. Some modern writers, among whom is Heineccius, thinks that the Priscus to whom Pliny wrote is the same as the jurist Neratius Priscus, who lived under Trajan and Hadrian, and who was, therefore, a contemporary of Pliny. [NERATIUS.]
