Messalla 14. L. Vipstanus Messalla, was legionary tribune in Vespasian's army, A. D. 70. He rescued the legatus Aponius Saturninus from the fury of the soldiers who suspected him of corresponding with the Vitellian party. Messalla was brother of Aquilius Regulus, the notorious delator in Domitian's reign (Plin. Ep. 1.5). He is one of Tacitus' authorities for the history of the civil wars after Galba's death, and a principal interlocutor in the dialogue De Oratoribus, ascribed to Tacitus. (Tac. Hist. 3.9, 11, 18, 25, 28, 4.42, Dialog. de Orat. 15-25.) [W.B.D]

Paulus, Ju'lius the brother or Claudius Civilis, who was the leader of the Batavi in their revolt from Rome, A. D. 69-70. On a false charge of treason Julius Paulus had been previously put to death by Nero's legate, Fonteius Capito, in A. D. 67 or 68. (Tac. Hist. 4.13, 32.) [CIVILIS.]

Pinus, Corne'lius a Roman painter, who, with Attius Priscus, decorated with paintings the walls of the temple of Honos and Virtus, when it was restored by Vespasian. He therefore lived about A. D. 70. (Plin. Nat. 35.10. s. 37.) [P.S]
haracter. The conspiracy was discovered by Milichus, a freedman of Flavius Scevinus, one of the conspirators. Piso thereupon opened his veins, and thus died. (Schol. ad juv. 5.109; D. C. 59.8 : Tac. Ann. 14.65, 15.48-59; D. C. 62.24, &c.; Suet. Nero 36.) Panagyric on Calpurnius Piso There is extant a poem in 261 lines, containing a panegyric on a certain Calpurnius Piso, whom Wernsdorf supposes with considerable probability to be the same as the leader of the conspiracy against Nero. Piso left a son, whom Tacitus calls Calpurnius Galerianus, and who would appear from his surname to have been adopted by Piso. The ambition of the father caused the death of the son; for Mucianus, the praefect of Vespasian, fearing lest Galerianus might follow in his father's steps, put him to death, when he obtained possession of the city in A. D. 70. (Tac. Hist. 4.11.) Editions The poem is printed in the fourth volume of Wernsdorf's Poetae Latini Minores, where it is attributed to Saleius Bassus

Plotius Griphus a partizan of Vespasian, was raised to the practorship, A. D. 70 (Tac. Hist. 3.52, 4.39, 40.)
Po'ntia 2. Pontia Postumia, was slain by her lover, Octavius Sagitta, tribune of the plebs, A. D. 58, because she refused to marry him after promising to do so. Sagitta was accused by the father of Pontia, and condemned under the lex Cornelia de Sicariis to the severest form of banishment (deportatio in insulam). In the civil wars following the death of Nero, Sagitta returned from banishment, but was again condemned by the senate, in A. D. 70, to his former punishment. (Tac. Ann. 13.44, Hist. 4.44.)
Priscus artists. 1. ATTIUS, a Roman painter, who lived under the Flavian emperors (about A. D. 70), and was one of the best artists of the period. In conjunction with Cornelius Pinus, he adorned with paintings the temple of Honos et Virtus, when it was restored by Vespasian. Of these two artists Priscus approached nearest to the ancients. (Plin. Nat. 35.10. s. 37.)

nd might thus appear to have received some disgrace. Marcellus carried his point on this occasion. Priscus accused him, shortly afterwards, of having been one of the informers under Nero, but he was acquitted, in consequence of the support which he received from Mucianus and Domitian. Although Vespasian was now emperor, and no one was left to dispute the throne with him, Priscus did not worship the rising sun. During Vespasian's continued absence in the East, Priscus, who was now praetor (A. D. 70), opposed various measures which had been brought forward by others with a view of pleasing the emperor. Thus he maintained that the retrenchments in the public expences, which were rendered necessary by the exhausted state of the treasury, ought to be made by the senate, and not left to the emperor, as the consul elect had proposed; and he also brought forward a motion in the senate that the Capitol should be rebuilt at the public cost, and only with assistance from Vespasian.
