Bae'bia Gens plebeian, of which the cognomens are DIVES, HERENNIUS (? see Liv. 22.34), SULCA, TAMPHILUS: the last is the only surname which appears on coins, where it is written Tampilus. (Eckhel, v. p. 149.) The first member of the gens who obtained the consulship was Cn. Baebius Tamphilus, in B. C. 182. For those whose cognomen is not mentioned, see BAEBIUS.

Flaccus, Fu'lvius 5. Q. Fulvius Flaccus, Q. F. M. N., one of the four sons of Q. Fulvius Flaccus No. 2. In B. C. 185 he was aedilis curulis designatus; and as the city praetor, C. Decimus, had just died, he offered himself as a candidate for his place, but without success, notwithstanding his great exertions, and it was not till B. C. 182, that he received the office of praetor, with Hispania Citerior as his province. On his arrival there, he expelled the Celtiberians, who were in possession of the town of Urbicua, which he took, and soon after he defeated the Celtiberians in a great battle, in which 23,000 of them are said to have been slain and 4000 taken prisoners. After the reduction of the town of Contrebia he gained a second great victory over the Celtiberians, whereupon the greater part of them submitted to the Romans. At the end of the year of his praetorship, when he was returning from his province, he was allowed to take with him to Rome those soldiers who had most distingu

Flaccus, Fu'lvius 6. M. Fulvius Flaccus, Q. F. M. N., a brother of No. 5, served as legate of his brother Quintus in Spain against the Celtiberians, B. C. 182. (Liv. 40.30.)
Onomastus (*)Ono/mastos,) a confidential officer of Philip V. of Macedon, for whom he held the government of the sea-coast of Thrace, and whose instrument he was, together with CASSANDER [No. 4], in the massacre of the Maronites. Appius Claudius, and the other Roman colnmissioners, required that Philip should send Onomastus and Cassander to Rome to be examined about the massacre; whereupon the king despatched Cassander, and had him poisoned on the way, but persisted in declaring that Onomastus had not been in or near Maroneia at the time; the fact being (as Polybius and Livy tell us) that he was too deep in the royal secrets to be trusted at Rome. We hear again of Onomastus as one of the two assessors of Philip at the private trial of DEMETRIUS for the alleged attempt on the life of his brother Perseus, B. C. 182. (Plb. 23.13, 14 ; Liv. 39.34. 40.8.) [E.

the Lusitani. At first he was unsuccessful, being defeated near Lyco, a town of the Bastetani, with a loss of 6000 of his men; but he subsequently retrieved this misfortune by gaining a great victory over the enemy, by which Spain was for a time rendered more tranquil. He returned to Rome in B. C. 189, and shortly afterwards became a candidate for the consulship. Several times, however, did he sue in vain for this honour (comp. Liv. 39.32; Aur. Vict. de Vir. Ill. 56) ; and it was not till B. C. 182 that he obtained the consulship along with Cn. Baebius Tamphilus. In the following year, B. C. 181, Paulus was sent against the Ingauni, a Ligurian people, who possessed a considerable naval power, with which they were in the habit of plundering the merchantvessels as far as the Atlantic. These people he entirely subdued, razed their fortifications, and carried off their shipping; and in consequence of his success he obtained a triumph on his return to Rome. For the next thirteen years A
Casaubon that he was born about B. C. 204, since he would in that case have been about twenty-five at the time of his appointment to the Egyptian embassy. Lycortas, the father of Polybius, was one of the most distinguished men of the Achaean league ; and his son therefore received the advantages of his training in political knowledge and the military art. He must also have reaped great benefit from his intercourse with Philopoemen, who was a friend of his father's, and on whose death, in B. C. 182, Lycortas was appointed general of the league. At the funeral of Philopoemen in this year Polybius carried the urn in which his ashes were deposited. (Plut. Philpoem. 21, An seni gerunda sit respubl. p. 790, &c.) In the following year, as we have already seen, Polybius was appointed one of the ambassadors to Egypt, but he did not leave Greece, as the intention of sending an embassy was abandoned. From this time he probably began to take part in public affairs, and he appears to have soon o
Tere'ntius 5. C. Terentius Istra, praetor B. C. 182, obtained Sardinia as his province. In the following year he was one of the triumviri for founding a colony at Graviscae. (Liv. 39.56, 11.1, 29.)

Varro, Tere'ntius 2. A TERENTIUS VARRO, served in Greece in B. C. 189, and was elected praetor in B. C. 184, when he obtained Nearer Spain as his province. He carried on the war with success, defeated the Celtiberi in several battles, and on his return to Rome in B. C. 182, received the honour of an ovation, which is recorded in the Triumphal Fasti. In B. C. 172, Varro was sent on an embassy to the Illyrian king Gentius, and in B. C. 167 was one of the ten commissioners appointed to settle the affairs of Macedonia, in conjunction with Aemilius Paulus after the conquest of Perseus. (Liv. 37.48, 49, 39.32, 38, 41, 56, 40.2, 16.)
