Alexander (*)Ale/candros), son of PERSEUS, king of Macedonia, was a child at the conquest of his father by the Romans, and after the triumph of Aemilius Paullus in B. C. 167, was kept in enstody at Alba, together with his father. He became skilful in the toreutic art, learned the Latin language, and became a public notary. (Liv. 45.42; Plut. Aem. 37
Androni'cus (*)Andro/nikos), an AETOLIAN, the son of Andronicus, was put to death by the Romans, in B. C. 167, because he had borne arms with his father against the Romans. (Liv. 45.31
Anto'nius 5. M. Antonius, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 167, opposed the bill introduced by the praetor M. Juventius Thalna for declaring war against the Rhodians. (Liv. 45.21, 40.)
Bae'bius 5. A. Baebius, caused the members of the Aetolian senate to be killed in B. C. 167, and was in consequence afterwards condemned at Rome. Livy calls him praeses, a term which is applied in later times by the jurists to a governor of a province. Whether, however, Baebius had the government of Aetolia, or only of the town in which the murder was perpetrated, is uncertain. (Liv. 45.28, 31.)
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Cato the Censor (search)
t--the example of Rome herself. " If Rome were stript of all that she did not justly gain, the Romans might go back to their huts." Cato, offended with these principles, and jealous of the attention paid to this Greek, gave advice which the senate followed--" Let these deputies have an answer, and a polite dismissal as soon as possible." Upon the conquest of Perseus, the leading men of the Achaian union, to the number of nearly 1,000, including the historian Polybius, were brought to Rome, B. C. 167, as hostages for the good behaviour of the Achaians, and, afterwards, without any proof of disaffection, were detained in exile from their country, and distributed among the colonize and municipia of Italy. When their numbers were reduced to about 300, by an exile of 16 years, the intercession of the younger Africanus, the friend of Polybius, prevailed with Cato to vote that they should be permitted to return to their country. The conduct of the old senator--he was now eighty-three---was k
Ce'phalus (*Ke/falos), a Molossian chief, who, together with another chief, Antinous, was driven by the calumnies of Charops to take the side of Perseus, in self-defence, against the Romans. [ANTINOUS.] Some have inferred from the language of Polybius that, after the outbreak of the war, Cephalus slew himself to avoid falling into the hands of the conquerors; but Livy tells us, that he was killed at the capture of the Molossian town of Tecmon, which he had obstinately defended against L. Anicius, the Roman commander, B. C. 167. Polybius speaks of him as " a man of wisdom and consistency," fro/nimos kai\ sta/simos a)/nqrwpos. (Plb. 27.13, 30.7; Liv. 43.18, 22, 45.26.) [E.
andson of the above. He received his education at Rome, and after his return to his own country adhered to the Roman cause; but here ends all resemblance between himself and his grandfather, who is called kalo\s ka)gaqo\s by Polybius. (27.13.) It was this younger Charops by whose calumnies Antinous and Cephalus were driven in self-defence to take the side of Perseus [ANTINOUS]; and he was again one of those who flocked from the several states of Greece to Aemilius Paullus at Amphipolis, in B. C. 167, to congratulate him on the decisive victory at Pydna in the preceding year, and who seized the opportunity to rid themselves of the most formidable of their political opponents by pointing them out as friends of Macedonia, and so causing them to be apprehended and sent to Rome. (Plb. 30.10; Liv. 45.31; Diod. Exc. p. 578; see p. 569b.) The power thus obtained Charops in particular so barbarously abused, that Polybius has recorded his belief " that there never had been before and never woul
.3, 3.5.2.) Cicereius was, however, elected praetor in the following year (B. C. 173), and he obtained the province of Sardinia, but was ordered by the senate to go to Corsica first, in order to conduct the war against the inhabitants of that island. After defeating the Corsicans in battle, he granted them peace on the payment of 200,000 pounds of wax, and then passed over to Sardinia. On his return to Rome next year (B. C. 172) he sued for a triumph on account of his victory in Corsica, and when this was refused by the senate, he celebrated on his own authority a triumph on the Alban mount, a practice which had now become not unfrequent. In the same year he was one of the three ambassadors sent to the Illyrian king, Gentins; and in B. C. 167 he was again despatched on the same mission. In the year before (B. C. 168) he dedicated on the Alban mount the temple to Juno Moneta, which he had vowed in his battle with the Corsicans five years before. (Liv. 41.33, 42.1, 7, 21, 26 45.17, 15.)
Deinon (*Dei/nwn), one of the chief men of Rhodes, who, when the war broke out between Perseus and the Romans (B. C. 171), vainly endeavoured to induce his countrymen to pay no regard to the letter which C. Lucretius had sent to ask for ships, and which Deinon pretended was a forgery of their enemy Eumenes, king of Pergamus, designed to involve them in a ruinous war. But, though he failed on this occasion, he still kept up a strong opposition to the Roman party. In B. C. 167, after the defeat of Perseus, the Rhodians delivered him up to the Romans by way of propitiating them. Polybius calls him a bold and covetous adventurer, and censures him for what he considers an unmanly clinging to life after the ruin of his fortunes. (Plb. 27.6,11, 28.2, 29.5, 30.6-8; Liv. 44.23, 29, 45.22.) [E.
ollowed was not such as to give satisfaction to the Romans; and he was suspected of corresponding secretly with Perseus, a charge which, accordinig to Polybius, was not altogether unfounded; but his designs extended only to the obtaining from that prince a sum of money for procuring him a peace on favourable terms. (Polyb. Fragm. Vatican. pp. 427-429; Liv. 44.13, 24, 25; Appian, Mac. Exc. 16, pp. 531-2.) His overtures were, however, rejected by Perseus, and after the victory of the Romans (B. C. 167), he hastened to send his brother Attalus to the senate with his congratulations. They did not choose to take any public notice of what had passed, and dismissed Attalus with fair words; but when Eumenes, probably alarmed at finding his schemes discovered, determined to proceed to Rome in person, the senate passed a decree to forbid it, and finding that he was already arrived at Brundusium, ordered him to quit Italy without delay. (Plb. 30.17, Fragm. Vatic. p. 428; Liv. Epit. xlvi.) Hencef
