A Roman historian of the time of Tiberius, who treated of the expiration of the Republic and
the founding of the Empire. Quintilian (x. 1.103) speaks of his libri belli
, which may, however, have been a part of the other work. His narrative was
continued by Pliny the Elder, and appears to have been used by Dio Cassius and Suetonius.
Quotations from it are to be found in Seneca, Suasoriae
, vi. 18 and 23. See H.
Peter, Hist. Fragm.
