4. Of the praetors who set out for the provinces, Numerius Fabius, on his way to Hither Spain, died at Marseilles. [2] Therefore when this was announced by envoys from Marseilles, the senate resolved that Publius Furius and Cneius Servilius, to whom successors had been sent, should cast lots to determine which of them should hold the government of Hither Spain, with a continuation of authority; and the lot determined, very fortunately, that Publius Furius, whose province it had formerly been, should continue. [3] During the same year, on its appearing that large tracts of land in Gaul and Liguria, which had been taken in war, lay unoccupied, the senate passed a decree, that those lands should be dis- tributed in single shares; [4] and Aulus Titilius, city praetor, in pursuance of the said decree, appointed ten commissioners for that purpose, namely, Marcus Aemilius Lepidus, Caius Cassius, Titus Aebutius Carus, Caius Tremellius, Publius Cornelius Cethe- gus, Quintus and Lucius Appuleius, Marcus Caecilius, Caius [p. 1962]Salonius, and Caius Munatius. They apportioned ten acres to each Roman, and three to each Latin colonist. [5] During the same time in which these transactions took place, ambassadors came to Rome from Aetolia with representations of the quarrels and dissensions subsisting in that country; likewise Thessalian ambassadors, announcing the transactions in Macedon.
