Labe'rius Ma'ximus was procurator of Judaea in A. D. 73, 74, the third and fourth years of Vespasian's reign. After the destruction of Jerusalem the emperor sent Laberius orders to offer for sale all the lands in Judaea. (Joseph. Bell. Jud. 7.6.6.) A Laberius Maximus, whether the same is uncertain, was banished by Trajan on suspicion of aspiring to the purple (Spartian. Hadrian. 5); and a person of the same name is mentioned by Martial (Mart. 6.14) and by Pliny (Plin. Ep. 10.16). [W.B.D]
