Cleopatra 3. A daughter of Antiochus III. the Great, who married Ptolemy V. Epiphanes (B. C. 193), Coele-Syria being given her as her dowry (Appian, App. Syr. ch. 5; Liv. 37.3), though Antiochus afterwards repudiated any such arrangement. (Plb. 28.17.)
rrived, all the tribes of Acarnania submitted to the Romans. In B. C. 195, when T. Flamininus marched against Nabis, Lucius went out with 40 sail to join him in his operations : he took several maritime towns, some of which were conquered by force, while others submitted voluntarily, and he then proceeded to Gythium, the great arsenal of Sparta. When Titus began besieging the same place by land, Gorgopas, the commander of the garrison, treacherously surrendered the town to the Romans. In B. C. 193, L. Flamininus sued for the consulship, and, as the remembrance of his exploits in Greece and of his subsequen triumph was yet fresh, he was elected for the year 192, together with Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus. He received Gaul as his province, and was ordered to hold the comitia. While on his march into his province, he fell in with the Ligurians in the neighbourhood of Pisa, and gained a great battle : 9000 enemies fell, and the rest fled to their camp, which was then besieged.

Flami'nius 2. C. Flaminius, a son of No. 1, was quaestor of P. Scipio Africanus the Elder in Spain, B. C. 210. Fourteen years later, B. C. 196, he was curule aedile, and distributed among the people a large quantity of grain at a low price, which was furnished to him by the Sicilians as a mark of gratitude and distinction towards his father and himself. In B. C. 193 he was elected praetor, and obtained Hispania Citerior as his province. He took a fresh army with him, and was ordered by the senate to send the veterans back from Spain; he was further authorised to raise soldiers in Spain, and Valerius Antias even related that he went to Sicily to enlist troops, and that on his way back he was thrown by a storm on the coast of Africa. Whether this is true or not cannot be ascertained; but when he had properly reinforced himself, he carried on a successful war in Spain : he besieged and took the wealthy and fortified town of Litabrum, and made Corribilo, a Spanish chief, his prisoner.

a went back with his army to Apollonia. For the year following T. Villius Tappulus was elected consul, with Macedonia as his province, and Galba returned to Rome. In B. C. 197, he and Villius Tappulus were appointed legates to T. Quintius Flamininus in Macedonia, and in the next year, when it was decreed at Rome that tell commissioners should be sent to arrange with Flamininus the affairs between Rome and Macedonia, Galba and Tappulus were ordered to act as two of those commissioners. In B. C. 193, Galba and Tappulus were sent as ambassadors to Antiochus; they first went to Eumenes at Pergamus, as they had been ordered, who urged the Romans to begin the war against Antiochus at once. For a short time Galba was detained at Pergamus by illness, but he was soon restored and went to Ephesus, where, instead of Antiochus, they found Minion, whom the king had deputed with full power. The result of the transactions was the war with Antiochus. This is the last event recorded of Galba, in wh
Genu'cius 5. M. Genucius, tribune of the soldiers in B. C. 193, under the consul L. Cornelius Merula, fell in battle against the Boians. (Liv. 35.5.)

was praetor in B. C. 196, having presided at the Ple beian Games in the Flaminian Circus; and from the fines for encroachment on the demesne lands he consecrated bronze statues to Ceres and her offspring Liber and Libera (33.25, comp. 3.55; Cic. de Nat. Deor. 2.24) at the end of 197. Glabrio was praetor peregrinus (Liv. 33.24, 26), and quelled an insurrection of the praedial slaves in Etruria, which was so formidable as to require the presence of one of the city legions. (Liv. 33.36.) In B. C. 193 he was an unsuccessful competitor for the consulship, which, however, he obtained in 191. (35.10, 24.) In this year Rome declared war against Antiochus the Great, king of Syria [ANTIOCHUS III.]; and the commencement of hostilities with the most powerful monarch of Asia was thought to demand unusual religious solemnities. In the allotment of the provinces, Greece, the seat of war, fell to Glabrio; but before he took the field he was directed by the senate to superintend the sacred ceremonie
tiochus III. king of Syria, to induce him to take up arms against Rome. (Liv. 33.45). There can be little doubt that the charge was well founded, and Hannibal saw that his enemies were too strong for him. No sooner, therefore, did the Roman envoys appear at Carthage than he secretly took to flight, and escaped by sea to the island of Cercina, from whence he repaired to Tyre, and thence again, after a short interval, to the court of Antiochus at Ephesus. The Syrian monarch was at this time (B. C. 193) on the eve of war with Rome, though hostilities had not actually commenced. Hence Hannibal was welcomed with the utmost honours. But Antiochus, partly perhaps from incapacity, partly also from personal jealousy, encouraged by the intrigues of his courtiers, could not be induced to listen to his judicious counsels, the wisdom of which he was compelled to acknowledge when too late. Hannibal in vain urged the necessity of carrying the war at once into Italy, instead of awaiting the Romans in
Hegesi'anax (*(Hghsia/nac), one of the envoys of Antiochus the Great, in B. C. 196, to the ten Roman commissioners, whom the senate had sent to settle the affairs of Greece after the conquest of Philip V. by Flamininus (Plb. 18.30, 33; comp. Liv. 33.38, 39; App. Syr. 2, 3.) In B. C. 193 he was sent by Antiochus as one of his ambassadors to Rome; the negotiation, however, came to nothing, as the Romans required that Antiochus should withdraw his forces from all places in Europe,--a demand to which Hegesianax and his colleagues could not assent. (Liv. 34.57-59; Appian, App. Syr. 6.) [E.

Libo, Scribo'nius 3. L. Scribonius Libo, curule aedile, B. C. 193, with C. Atilius Serranus. They were the first aediles who exhibited the Megalesia as ludi scenici; and it was also in their aedileship that the senators had seats assigned them in the theatre distinct from the rest of the people. In B. C. 192, Libo was consul, and obtained the peregrina jurisdictio, and in B. C. 185 he was appointed one of the triumviri to conduct colonists to Sipontum and Buxentum. (Liv. 34.54; Ascon. in Cic. Cornel. p. 69, ed. Orelli; Liv. 35.10, 20, 39.23.)

Li'cinus, Po'rcius 2. L. Porcius Licinus, the son of the preceding, was praetor B. C. 193, and received Sardinia as his province. He sued unsuccessfully for the consulship at first, but at length obtained it, in B. C. 184; and in conjunction with his colleague, P. Claudius Pulcher, carried on the war against the Ligurians. (Liv. 34.54, 55, 39.32, 33, 45, 40.34; Cic. Brut. 15.)
