Serra'nus 9. Atilius Serranus, one of the distinguished men slain by order of Marius and Cinna, when they entered Rome at the close of B. C. 87. (Appian, App. BC 1.72.)
mander, C. Marius, whose character he well understood. When Marius fled from Rome before Sulla, Sertorius remained; and while Sulla was engaged in the war against Mithridates, Sertorius sided with L. Cornelius Cinna, the consul, against the other consul Octavius. The two consuls fought a battle in the Forum, which ended in the victory of Octavius, and the flight of Cinna and Sertorius. Cinna, however, soon rallied his party, and got a force together which made him a match for Octavius. In B. C. 87, Marius returned to Italy from Africa, and proposed to join Cinna. Sertorius was against receiving the proposals of Marius, " a man who could endure no partner in power, and who was devoid of good faith." Cinna did not follow the advice of Sertorius, and Marius was allowed to join them. Sertorius commanded one of the four armies that presented themselves before Rome; and he, in conjunction with Cinna, fought the battle against Pompeius Strabo before the Colline gate. (Appian, App. BC 1.67;
Sexti'lius 5. SEXTILIUS, an Etruscan, betrayed C. Julius Caesar Strabo to the assassins of Marius and Cinna, in B. C. 87, although he had been previously defended by Caesar, when accused of a very grave offence. (V. Max. 5.3.3; Cic. de Orat. 3.3).
he spoils of the East; and he therefore professed to be pleased that the people made use of the liberty he had granted them. He, however, took the vain precaution of making Cinna promise that he would make no attempt to disturb the existing order of things; but one of Cinna's first acts was to induce the tribune M. Virgilius to bring an accusation against Sulla as soon as his year of office had expired. Sulla, without paying any attention to this accusation, quitted Rome at the beginning of B. C. 87, and hastened to his troops at Capua, where he embarked for Greece, in order to carry on the war against Mithridates. For the next four years Sulla was engaged in the prosecution of this war, the history of which is given under MITHRIDATES VI. and his general ARCHELAUS, and may therefore be dismissed here with a few words. Sulla landed at Dyrrhachium, and forthwith marched against Athens, which had become the head-quarters of the Mithridatic cause in Greece. After a long and obstinate si
Tere'ntius 9. L. Terentius, was the companion and tentmate of Cn. Pompeius, when the latter was serving under his father Strabo in B. C. 87, and was bribed by Cinna to kill Pompeius. (Plut. Pomp. 3.
Virgi'lius 1. M. Virgilius, the frater or first cousin of T. Aufidius, was tribune of the plebs in B. C. 87, when, at the instigation of the consul Cinna, he brought an accusation against Sulla, when the latter was on the point of crossing over to Greece to conduct the war against Mithridates; but Sulla left Rome without paying any attention to Virgilius or his accusation. He is called Virginius by Plutarch. (Cic. Brut. 48; Plut. Sull. 10.)
Virgi'nius 5. VIRGINIUS, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 87, who accused Sulla, is spoken of under VIRGILIUS, No. 1.
