Sci'pio 34. Cornelius Scipio, legatus of Junius Blaesus, proconsul of Africa, under whom he served in the campaign against Tacfarinus in A. D. 22 (Tac. Ann. 3.74). He may, perhaps, have been the son of No. 32.

picious temper of Tiberius, who was afraid of a woman of such a stamp, was still further irritated by the insinuations of Sejanus, who sowed the seeds of hatred in the mind of Tiberius, to the end that they might ripen in due time. The ambitious designs of Sejanus began to be suspected by the Romans when Tiberius betrothed the daughter of Sejanus to Drusus, the son of Claudius, who was afterwards emperor. The marriage was prevented by the untimely death of the youth (Sueton. Claud. 27). In A. D. 22 the theatre of Pompeius was burnt (Tac. Ann. 3.72), on which occasion Sejanus received the thanks of Tiberius, for preventing the conflagration from spreading further. Seneca (Ad Marciam, 22) states, that when a statue of Sejanus was decreed to be placed in the building which Tiberius restored, Cremutius Cordus exclaimed that the theatre was now really ruined. Sejanus was the person who advised that the Praetorian cohorts, which had hitherto been disposed in various parts of the city, sho

Junia Norbana, which enacted that slaves manumitted without the requisite formalities should, in certain cases, have the status of Latini : such persons were called Latini Juniani (see Dict. of Antiq. p. 693a, 2d ed.). Tacitus speaks of Silanus as pre-eminently distinguished by his high nobility and eloquence. In A. D. 20 he obtained from Tiberius the recal of his brother [No. 9] from exile. Like the other senators he endeavoured to gain the favour of the emperor by flattery. He proposed in A. D. 22 that all public and private documents should not hear in future the names of the consuls, but the names of those who possessed the tribunician power, that is, of the emperors. In A. D. 33 his daughter Claudia, or Junia Claudilla, as she is called by Suetonius (Cal. 12), was married to C. Caesar, afterwards the emperor Caligula. Silanus was governor of Africa in the reign of Caligula; but the suspicious tyrant feared his father-in-law, and accordingly first deprived him of all power in the p

Sila'nus, Ju'nius 10. C. Junius Silanus, described as Flamen Martialis in the Capitoline Fasti, was consul A. D. 10, with P. Cornelius Dolabella. Judging from his praenomen we may suppose him to have been a son of No. 7; but this is opposed to the Capitoline Fasti, in which he is described as C. F. M. N. Silanus was afterwards proconsul of Asia, and in A. D. 22 was accused of malversation by the provincials. To this crime his accusers in the senate added that of treason (majestas), and it was proposed to banish him to the island of Gyaros; but Tiberius changed the place of his exile to the less inhospitable island of Cynthus, which his sister Torquata had begged might be the place of his punishment. (Tac. Ann. 3.66-69, 4.15.)
t was defeated with considerable loss. In A. D. 20 Tacfarinas again attacked the Roman province. He carried his devastations far and wide, and defeated a Roman cohort which was stationed not far from the river Pagyda (perhaps the modern Abeadh), but, after meeting with considerable success, he was defeated in his turn by Apronius, who had succeeded Camillus, and was compelled to retire into the deserts. Nothing daunted by these defeats, Tacfarinas found means to collect a fresh army, and in A. D. 22 had the impudence to send ambassadors to Tiberius, soliciting abodes for himself and his troops, and menacing the emperor, in case of refusal, with perpetual war. Tiberius was indignant at receiving such a message from a deserter and a robber, and gave strict injunctions to Junius Blaesus, who had been appointed governor of Africa, to use every effort to obtain possession of the person of Tacfarinas. In this, however, Blaesus was unable to succeed, for although he defeated Tacfarinas, and t
iberius, in his usual perplexed mode of expression, blamed the senate; he praised their affectionate zeal in avenging insults to the princeps, but he disapproved of such hasty penalties being inflicted for words only. (Tac. Ann. 3.49.) It was on this occasion that a senatus consultum was enacted, that no decree of the senate should be carried to the Aerarium before the tenth day, and thus a reprieve of so many days would be allowed to the condemned (Tac. Ann. 3.51; D. C. 57.20). In the vear A. D. 22 the senate conferred on Drusus, at the request of Tiberius, the Tribunitia Potestas, the highest title of dignity, and an intimation that Drusus was to be the successor of Tiberius. Though the senate had conferred the honour in terms of great adulation, Drusus. who appears to have been in Campania at the time, did not think it worth while to come to Rome to thank them. (Tac. Ann. 3.59.) Tacfarinas, an African chieftain, had long troubled the province of Africa, and Junins Blaesas was sent a

Torqua'ta, Ju'nia a Vestal virgin, and the sister of C. Junius Silanus, interceded on behalf of her brother, who was condemned of treason in A. D. 22, and obtained from Tiberius a commutation of his punishment. Her name occurs in inscriptions. (Tac. Ann. 3.70, with the note of Lipsius; Spon, Miscell. p. 150.) [SILANUS, No. 10.]
