ffered them a large sum of money as a present with a view of securing their favour, Apollonides of Sicyon strongly opposed the Achaeans' accepting the money, as something unworthy of them, and which would expose them to the influence of the king. He was supported by some other distinguished Achaeans, and they magnanimously refused accepting the money. (Plb. 23.8.) At this congress Roman ambassadors also had been present, and after their return, Spartan and Achaean ambassadors went to Rome, B. C. 185. Among the latter was Apollonides, who endeavoured to explain to the Roman senate the real state of affairs at Sparta, against the Spartan ambassadors, and to vindicate the conduct of Philopoemen and the Achaeans against the charges of the Spartans. (Plb. 23.11, 12.) At the outbreak of the war between the Romans and Perseus of Macedonia, Apollonides advised his countrymen not to oppose the Romans openly, but at the same time he censured severely those who were for throwing themselves into
Archon 2. Of Aegeira, one of those who defended the conduct of the Achaean league with reference to Sparta before Caecilius Metellus, B. C. 185. 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.)
8, and induced the Achaeans to join the Romans in the war against Philip of Macedon. Polybius defends him from the charge of treachery for having done so. In the following year (B. C. 197) he was again strategus and accompanied the consul T. Quinctius Flamininus to his interview with Philip. (Plb. 32.19-21, 32; Plb. 17.1, 7, 13.) In the same year he also persuaded the Boeotians to espouse the side of the Romans. (Liv. 33.2.) In B. C. 195, when he was again strategus, he joined Flamininus with 10,000 foot and 1000 horse in order to attack Nabis. (Liv. 34.25, &c.) He was also strategus in B. C. 185, and attacked Philopoemen and Lycortas for their conduct in relation to the embassy that had been sent to Ptolemy. (Plb. 23.7, 9, 10.) Aristaenus was the political opponent of Philopoemen, and showed more readiness to gratify the wishes of the Romans than Philopoemen did. He was eloquent and skilled in politics, but not distinguished in war. (Plb. 25.9; comp. Plut. Phil. 17; Paus. 8.51.1.)
Aristoni'cus 3. A eunuch of Ptolemy Epiphanes, who had been brought up with the king from his early youth. Polybius speaks of him in terms of high praise, as a man of a generous and warlike disposition, and skilled in political transactions. In B. C. 185, when the king had to fight against some discontented Egyptians, Aristonicus went to Greece and engaged a body of mercenaries there. (Plb. 23.16, 17.)
Cassander 4. An officer in the service of Philip V. of Macedon, whom the king, exasperated by the Romans calling on him to give up Aenus and Maroneia in Thrace, employed as his chief instrument in the cruel massacre of the Maronites, B. C. 185. Being desired by the Romans to send Cassnnder to Rome for examination before the senate on the subject of the massacre, he caused him to be poisoned on his way, in Epeirus, to prevent any untoward revelations. (Plb. 23.13, 14 ; Liv. 39.27, 34.) [E.E]

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
send the veterans back from Spain; he was further authorised to raise soldiers in Spain, and Valerius Antias even related that he went to Sicily to enlist troops, and that on his way back he was thrown by a storm on the coast of Africa. Whether this is true or not cannot be ascertained; but when he had properly reinforced himself, he carried on a successful war in Spain : he besieged and took the wealthy and fortified town of Litabrum, and made Corribilo, a Spanish chief, his prisoner. In B. C. 185 he obtained the consulship, together with M. Aemilius Lepidus, in opposition to whom he defended, at the beginning of the year, M. Fulvius ; for the senate assigned the Ligurians as the province of the two consuls, and Lepidus, dissatisfied, wanted to have the province, of which M. Fulvius had had the administration for the last two years. At last, however, C. Flaminius and Aemilius Lepidus marched into their province against the Ligurians, and Flaminius, after having gained several battle
Galba 4. SER. SULPICIUS GALBA was curule aedile in B. C. 188, in which year he dedicated twelve gilt shields in the temple of Hercules, out of the fines which he and his colleague had exacted. In the year following he was appointed praetor urbanus, and supported M. Fulvius in his demand of a triumph. In B. C. 185, he was a candidate for the consulship, but without success. (Liv. 38.35, 42, 39.5, 32.)
Hege'sinus (*)Hghsi/nous), of Pergamum, an Academic philosopher, the successor of Evander and the immediate predecessor of Carneades in the chair of the academy. He flourished about B. C. 185. (D. L. 4.60; Cic. Ac. 2.6

ia, to demand the withdrawment of the garrisons of Antiochus from Aenus and Maronia. The treaty with Antiochus had just been concluded by Cn. Manlius, and in accordance with the terms of it Labeo was despatched to Patara, to destroy the ships of the king which were there. He afterwards got possession of Telmissus, and then conducted the fleet back to Italy. The triumph which he demanded was accorded to him, notwithstanding the opposition of the tribunes. (Liv. 37.47, 50, 60, 38.39, 47). In B. C. 185 he became a candidate for the consulship; but App. Claudius succeeded in getting his brother Publius elected in his stead. This was the second repulse of the kind which he had received. (Liv. 39.32). In the following year he was appointed one of the triumvirs for planting colonies at Potentia and Pisaurum. (Id. 44). In B. C. 183 he was elected consul with M. Claudius Marcellus. Liguria was assigned to the consuls as their province. (Id. 45.) He was created pontifex in B. C. 180. (40.42.) C
