Aqui'llia whom some had said that Quintus Cicero, the brother of the orator, intended to marry. Cicero mentions the report in one of his letters, B. C. 44, and says, in another, that young Quintus would not endure her as a step-mother. (ad Att. 14.13, 17.)
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Orodes I. (search)
Pacorus was recalled before the defeat of the Parthians by Cassius. On the breaking out of the war between Caesar and Pompey, the latter applied to Orodes for assistance, which he promised on condition of the session of Syria; but as this was refused by Pompey, the Parthian king did not send him any troops, though he appears to have been in favour of his party rather than of Caesar's. (D. C. 41.55; Justin, l.c.) Caesar had intended to invade Parthia in the year in which he was assassinated, B. C. 44; and in the civil war which followed, Brutus and Cassins sent Labienus, the son of Caesar's general, T. Labienus, to Orodes to solicit his assistance. This was promised; but the battle of Philippi was fought, and Brutus and Cassius fell (B. C. 42), before Labienus could join them. The latter now remained in Parthia. Meantime Antony had obtained the East in the partition of the Roman world, and consequently the conduct of the Parthian war; but instead of making any preparations against the P
Asi'nius 3. ASINIUS, a friend of Antony, who surreptitiously crept into the senate after the death of Caesar, B. C. 44. (Cic. Phil. 13.13.)
no advantages for the purpose, as may be inferred from the fact, that Augustus took his instructors--the rhetorician Apollodorus of Pergamus and the mathematician Theogenes, with him from Rome. When Caesar had again to appoint the magistrates in B. C. 44, he remembered the desire of his nephew, and conferred upon him, while he was at Apolionia, the office of magister equitum, on which he was to enter in the autumn of B. C. 43. But things turned out far differently. Augustus had scarcely been at Apollonia six months, when he was surprised by the news of his uncle's murder, in March, B. C. 44. Short as his residence at this place had been, it was yet of great influence upon his future life : his military exercises seem to have strengthened his naturally delicate constitution, and the attentions and flatteries which were paid to the nephew of Caesar by the most distinguished persons connected with the legions in Illyricum, stimulated his ambition and love of dominion, and thus explain as
Bae'bius 11. BAEBIUS, a Roman senator, served under Vatinius in Illyria. On the murder of Caesar, B. C. 44, the Illyrians rose against Vatinius, and cut off Baebius and five cohorts which he commanded. (Appian, App. Ill. 13.)
Balbi'lius who was in Spain, B. C. 44 (Cic. Att. 15.13), is conjectured by Mongault to be only a diminutive of Cornelius Balbus, the younger, a friend of Cicero's, but this is very improbable.
ntulus a visit in the Pompeian camp at Dyrrhachium, but he was not successful either time. Balbus served under Caesar in the Alexandrian and Spanish wars, during which time he kept up a correspondence with Cicero, with whom he had become acquainted through his uncle. In return for his services in these wars, Caesar made him pontiff; and it is therefore probably this Cornelius Balbus who wrote a work on the Roman sacra, of which the eighteenth book is quoted by Macrobius. (Saturn. 3.6.) In B. C. 44 and 43, Balbus was quaestor of the propraetor Asinius Pollio in Further Spain; and while there, he added to his native town Gades a suburb, which was called the new city, and built a dock-yard; and the place received in consequence the name of Didyma or double-city. (Strab. iii. p.169.) But his general conduct in Spain was of a most arbitrary and tyrannical kind; and at length, after plundering the provincials and amassing large treasures, he left Spain in B. C. 43, without even paying the

Barba, Ca'ssius a friend of J. Caesar, who gave Cicero guards for his villa, when Caesar paid him a visit in B. C. 44. (Cic. Att. 13.52; comp. Phil. 13.2.)
Ba'silus 5. L. Minucius Basilus, whose original name was M. Satrius, took the name of his uncle, by whom he was adopted. [No. 4.] He served under Caesar in Gaul, and is mentioned in the war against Ambiorix, B. C. 54, and again in 52, at the end of which campaign he was stationed among the Remi for the winter with the command of two legions. (Caes. Gal. 6.29, 30, 7.92.) He probably continued in Gaul till the breaking out of the civil war in 49, in which he commanded part of Caesar's fleet. (Flor. 4.2.32; Lucan, 4.416.) He was one of Caesar's assassins in B. C. 44, although, like Brutus and others, he was a personal friend of the dictator. In the following year he was himself murdered by his own slaves, because he had punished some of them in a barbarous manner. (Appian, App. BC 2.113, 3.98; Oros. 6.18.) There is a letter of Cicero's to Basilus, congratulating him on the murder of Caesar. (Cic. Fam. 6.15.)
Bellie'nus 4. L. ANNIUS BELLIENUS, perhaps a son of the preceding, whose house was burnt down after the murder of Caesar in B. C. 44. (Cic. Phil. 2.36.)
