Acidi'nus 3. L. MANLIUS (ACIDINUS), who was quaestor in B. C. 168 (Liv. 45.13), is probably one of the two Manlii Acidini, who are mentioned two years before as illustrious youths, and of whom one was the son of M. Manlius, the other of L. Manlius.

(Plb. 28.14, 15, 29.4, 7; Liv. 45.3.)
Agesi'lochus or HEGESI'LOCHES (*)Agesi/loxos, *)Aghsi/loxos, *(Hghsi/loxos), was the chief magistrate (Prytanis) of the Rhodians, on the breaking out of the war between Rome and Perseus in B. C. 171, and recommended his countrymen to espouse the side of the Romans. He was sent as ambassador to Rome in B. C. 169, and to the consul Aemilius Paullus in Macedonia, B. C. 168.

Albi'nus 16. A. Postumius Albinus, one of the officers in the army of Aemilius Paullus in Macedonia, B. C. 168. He was sent by Paullus to treat with Perseus; and afterwards Perseus and his son Philip were committed to his care by Paullus. (Liv. 4, 28.)

hat of another chief, Cephalus, were connected with the royal house of Macedonia by friendship, and although he was convinced that the war against Rome would be ruinous to Macedonia and therefore had no intention of joining Perseus, yet Charops, a young Epeirot, who had been educated at Rome and wished to insinuate himself into the favour of the Romans, calumniated Antinous and Cephalus as if they entertained a secret hostility towards Rome. Antinous and his friends at first treated the machinations of Charops with contempt, but when they perceived that some of their friends were arrested and conveyed to Rome, Antinous and Cephalus were compelled, for the sake of their own safety, openly, though unwillingly, to join the Macedonian party, and the Molossians followed their example. After the outbreak of the war Antinous fell fighting, B. C. 168. Polybius does not state clearly whether Antinous fell in battle, or whether he put an end to his own life in despair. (Plb. 27.13, 30.7.) [L.S]

n given as her dowry. As the Romans were at this time engaged in a war with Perseus, king of Macedonia, Antiochus thought it a favourable opportunity to prosecute his claims, and accordingly declared war against Egypt. In four campaigns (B. C. 171-168), he not only obtained possession of the countries to which he laid claim, but almost completed the conquest of Egypt, and was preparing to lay siege to Alexandria, when a Roman embassy commanded him to retire from the country. This command he thoted against the Jews during this war, are recorded in the books of the Maccabees, and have rendered his name infamous. He took Jerusalem on his return from his second campaign into Egypt (B. C. 170), and again at the end of the fourth campaign (B. C. 168), and endeavoured to root out the Jewish religion and introduce the worship of the Greek divinities; but this attempt led to a rising of the Jewish people, under Mattathias and his heroic sons the Maccabees, which Antiochus was unable to put do

He was one of the Achaean ambassadors sent to Egypt in B. C. 168 (Plb. 23.10, 29.10), and is perhaps the same as the Archo, the brother of Xenarchus, mentioned by Livy. (41.29.)
