Civīlis, Iulius

A powerful Batavian, who raised a sedition against the Roman State (A.D. 69-70) during the controversy for empire between Vitellius and Vespasian, but who was finally defeated by Petilius Cerealis. His end is not known. Tacitus, in his Historiae (bks. iv. and v.), has furnished us with interesting and copious details of this long-protracted conflict.
