Frank Frost Abbott, Commentary on Selected Letters of Cicero, Letter XLV: ad Atticum 8.3 (search)
c. via. in hac parte: i.e. in Italy. Cicero's reference to a retreat from Italy on the part of the Pompeians is in the nature of a prophecy. In so far as official information had been given out, a stand was to be made at Luceria. Strangely enough, however, only the day before this letter was written Pompey had ordered his forces to collect at Brundisium with a view to crossing to Dyrrachium (cf. Att. 8.12 A. 3), but Cicero did not know this. in Cinnae dominatione: when Marius and Cinna in 87 B.C. approached Rome, many of the Optimates fled, as the same class of men did on the approach of Caesar, but Philippus, Flaccus, and Mucius remained in the city, and Mucius (Q. Mucius Scaevola) was murdered a few years later. quoquo modo, etc., however that decision turned out in his case. malle: sc. perire. Thrasybulus (sc. fecit): he left Athens when the Thirty Tyrants came into power, but returned to drive them out; cf. Xen. Hell. 2.3.42; 2.4. sit (enim) : sc. Caesar. non accipere, (I am
Ahenobarbus 6. CN. DOMITIUS CN. F. CN. F. AHENOBARBUS, apparently a son of No. 4, married Cornelia, daughter of L. Cornelius Cinna, consul in B. C. 87, and in the civil war between Marius and Sulla espoused the side of the former. When Sulla obtained the supreme power in 82, Ahenobarbus was proscribed, and fled to Africa, where he was joined by many who were in the same condition as himself. With the assistance of the Numidian king, Hiarbas, he collected an army, but was defeated near Utica by Cn. Pompeius, whom Sulla had sent against him, and was afterwards killed in the storming of his camp, B. C. 81. According to some accounts, he was killed after the battle by command of Pompey. (Liv. Epit. 89; Plut. Pomp. 10, 12; Zonaras, 10.2; Ores. 5.21; V. Max. 6.2.8.)

Albinova'nus, P. Tu'llius belonged to the party of Marius in the first civil war, and was one of the twelve who were declared enemies of the state in B. C. 87. He thereupon fled to Hiempsal in Numidia. After the defeat of Carbo and Norbanus in B. C. 81, he obtained the pardon of Sulla by treacherously putting to death many of the principal officers of Norbanus, whom he had invited to a banquet. Ariminium in consequence revolted to Sulla, whence the Pseudo-Asconius (in Cic. Verr. p. 168, ed. Orelli) speaks of Albinovanus betraying it. (Appian, App. BC 1.60, 62, 91; Florus, 3.21.7.)
Q. Ancha'rius 1. A senator, and of praetorian rank, was killed by Marius on the return of the latter from Africa to Rome in B. C. 87 (Appian, App. BC 1.73.)
A'nnius 6. P. Annius, tribune of the soldiers, was the murderer of M. Antonius, the orator, in B. C. 87, and brought his head to Marius. (V. Max. 9.2.2; Appian, App. BC 1.72.)
Aristion (*)Aristi/wn), a philosopher either of the Epicurean or Peripatetic school, who made himself tyrant of Athens, and was besieged there by Sulla, B. C. 87, in the first Mithridatic war. His early history is preserved by Athenaeus (v. p. 211, &c.), on the authority of Posidonius of Apameia, the instructor of Cicero. By him he is called Athenion, whereas Pausanias, Appian, and Plutarch agree in giving him the name of Aristion. Casaubon on Athenaeus (l.c.) conjectures that his true name was Athenion, but that on enrolling himself as a citizen of Athens, he changed it to Aristion, a supposition confirmed by the case of one Sosias mentioned by Theophrastus, whose name was altered to Sosistratus under the same circumstances. Athenion or Aristion was the illegitimate son of a Peripatetic, also named Athenion, to whose property he succeeded, and so became an Athenian citizen. He married early, and began at the same time to teach philosophy, which he did with great success at Messene an
Bae'bius 8. M. Baebius was put to death by Marius and Cinna when they entered Rome in B. C. 87. Instead of being killed by any weapon, Baebius was literally torn to pieces by the hands of his enemies. (Appian, App. BC 1.72; Florus, 3.21; Lucan, 2.119.)
Cae'lius 3. P. Caelius, was placed in the command of Placentia by the consul Cn. Octavius, B. C. 87, and when the town was taken by Cinna's army, he caused himself to be put to death by L. Petronius, that he might not fall into the hands of the Marian party. (V. Max. 4.7.5.)
proceeded to besiege Asculum, before which he died of disease, according to the statement of Appian. (BC 1.48.) This, however, is clearly a mistake : he probably was obliged to leave the army in consequence of serious illness, and was succeeded in the command by C. Baebius. He was censor in the same year with P. Licinius Crassus (Cic. pro Arch. 5; Plin. Nat. 13.3. s. 5, 14.14. s. 16; Festus, s. v. Referri), and was engaged in carrying into effect his own law and that of Silvanus and Carbo, passed in this year, for conferring the citizenship upon some of the other Italian allies. These citizens were enrolled in eight or ten new tribes, which were to vote after the thirty-five old ones. (Appian, App. BC 1.49; Vell. 2.20.) On the breaking out of the civil war in B. C. 87, L. Caesar and his brother Caius, who were opposed to Marius and Cinna, were killed by Fimbria. (Appian, App. BC 1.72; Flor. 3.21.14; Ascon. in Scaur. p. 24, ed. Orelli; V. Max. 9.2.2; Cic. de Orat. 3.3, Tuscul. 5.19.)
