A'nnius 7. C. Annius, sent into Spain by Sulla about B. C. 82 against Sertorius, whom he compelled to retire to Nova Carthago. (Plut. Sert. 7.)
Anti'stia 2. Daughter of P. Antistius [ANTISTIUS, No. 6] and Calpurnia, was married to Pompeius Magnus in B. C. 86, who contracted the connexion that he might obtain a favourable judgment from Antistius, who presided in the court in which Pompeius was to be tried. Antistia was divorced by her husband in B. C. 82 by Sulla's order, who made him marry his step-daughter Aemilia. (Plut. Pomp. 4, 9.)
Anti'stius 6. P. Antistius, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 88, opposed in his tribuneship C. Caesar Strabo, who was a candidate for the consulship without having been praetor. The speech he made upon this occasion brought him into public notice, and afterwards he frequently had important causes entrusted to him, though he was already advanced in years. Cicero speaks favourably of his eloquence. In consequence of the marriage of his daughter to Pompeius Magnus, he supported the party of Sulla, and was put to death by order of young Marius in B. C. 82. His wife Calpurnia killed herself upon the death of her husband. (Cic. Brut. 63, 90, pro Rosc. Amer. 32; Vell. 2.26; Appian, App. BC 1.88; Liv. Epit. 86; Plut. Pomp. 9; Drumann, Gesch. Roms, i. p. 55.)
n of his friend Cicero (comp. Cic. Fam. 13.70), who wrote him a letter on the occasion, B. C. 46. (Ad Fam. 6.12.) Balbus appears to have written some work on the history of his times; for Suetonius (Suet. Jul. 77) quotes some remarks of Caesar's from a work of T. Ampius. Balbus was also mentioned in the fourth book of Varro " De Vita Populi Romani." (Varr. Fragm. p. 249, ed. Bip.) III. Q. Antonius Balbus, plebeian, is supposed to be the same as Q. Antonius who was praetor in Sicily in B. C. 82 and was killed by L. Philippus, the legate of Sulla. (Liv. Epit. 86) The annexed coin was struck either by, or in honour of, this Balbus. The obverse represents the head of Jupiter; the reverse is Q. A(N)TO. BA(L)B. PR. with Victory in a quadriga. IV. M. Atius Balbus, plebeian, of Aricia, married Julia, the sister of Julius Caesar, who bore him a daughter, Atia, the mother of Augustus Caesar. [ATIA.] He was praetor in B. C. 62, and obtained the government of Sardinia, as we learn fro
Brutus 18. M. Junius Brutus, praetor in B. C. 88, was sent with his colleague Servilius by the senate, at the request of Marius, to command Sulla, who was then at Nola, not to advance nearer Rome. (Plut. Sull. 9.) On Sulla's arrival at Rome, Brutus was proscribed with ten other senators. (Appian, App. BC 1.60.) He subsequently served under Cn Papirius Carbo, the consul, B. C. 82, and was sent by him in a fishing-boat to Lilybaeum; but finding himself surrounded by Pompey's fleet, he put an end to his own life, that he might not fall into the hands of his enemies. (Liv. Epit. 89.) Cicero, in a letter to Atticus (9.14), mentions a report, that Caesar intended to revenge the death of M. Brutus and Carbo, and of all those who had been put to death by Sulla with the assistance of Pompey. This M. Junius Brutus is not to be confounded, as he often is, with L. Junius Brutus Damasippus, praetor in 82 [No. 19], whose surname we know from Livy (Liv. Epit. 86) to have been Lucius; nor with M. Ju
Brutus 19. L. Junius Brutus Damasippus, an active and unprincipled partizan of Marius. The younger Marius, reduced to despair by the blockade of Praeneste (B. C. 82), came to the resolution that his greatest enemies should not survive him. Accordingly he managed to despatch a letter to L. Brutus, who was then praetor urbanus at Rome, desiring him to summon the senate upon some false pretext, and to procure the assassination of P. Antistius, of C. Papirius Carbo, L. Domitius, and Scaevola, the pontifex maximus. The cruel and treacherous order was too well obeyed, and the dead bodies of the murdered senators were thrown unburied into the Tiber. (Appian, App. BC 1.88; Vell. 2.26.) In the same year L. Brutus made an ineffectual attempt to relieve Praeneste: the consul of Cn. Papirius Carbo, despairing of success, fled to Africa ; but L. Brutus, with others of his party, advanced towards Rome, and were defeated by Sulla. L. Brutus was taken prisoner in the battle, and was put to death by
C. Burrie'nus praetor urbanus about B. C. 82. (Cic. pro Quint. 6, 21.)
in B. C. 83, Cornelia, the daughter of L. Cinna, one of the chief opponents of Sulla. He was then only seventeen years old, but had been already married to Cossutia, a wealthy heiress belonging to the equestrian order, to whom he had probably been betrothed by the wish of his father, who died in the preceding year. Caesar divorced Cossutia in order to marry Cinna's daughter; but such an open declaration in favour of the popular party provoked the anger of Sulla, who had returned to Rome in B. C. 82, and who now commanded him to put away Cornelia, in the same way as he ordered Pompey to divorce Antistia, and M. Piso his wife Annia, the widow of Cinna. Pompey and Piso obeyed, but the young Caesar refused to part with his wife, and was consequently proscribed, and deprived of his priesthood, his wife's dower, and his own fortune. His life was now in great danger, and he was obliged to conceal himself for some time in the country of the Sabines, till the Vestal virgins and his friends obt
of the plebs in B. C. 99, carried a law in this year for the recall of Q. Metellus Numidicus from banishment. In gratitude for this service, his son Q. Metellus Pius, who was then consul, supported Calidius in his canvas for the praetorship in B. C. 80. Calidius was accordingly praetor in B. C. 79, and obtained one of the Spanish provinces; but, on his return to Rome, he was accused of extortion in his province by Q. Lollius (not Gallius, as the Pseudo-Asconius states), and condemned by his judges, who had been bribed for the purpose. As, however, the bribes had not been large, Calidius made the remark, that a man of praetorian rank ought not to be condemned for a less sum than three million sesterces. (V. Max. 5.2.7; Cic. pro Planc. 28, 29; Cic. Verr. Act. 1.13 ; Pseudo-Ascon. ad loc. ; Cic. Ver. 3.25.) This Calidius may have been the one who was sent from Rome, about B. C. 82, to command Murena to desist from the devastation of the territories of Mithridates. (Appian, App. Mith. 65.)
Calpu'rnia 1. The daughter of L. Calpurnius Bestia, consul in B. C. 111, the wife of P. Antistius and the mother of Antistia, the first wife of Pompeius Magnus. On the murder of her husband in B. C. 82, by order of the younger Marius, Calpurnia put an end to her own life. (Vell. 2.26; comp. [ANTISTIUS, No. 6].)
