Quiētus, Q. Lusius

A Moorish chief who served with distinction under Trajan in both the Dacian and the Parthian Wars. Trajan made him governor of Iudaea, and raised him to the consulship in A.D. 116 or 117. After Trajan's death he returned to his native country, but he was suspected by Hadrian of fomenting the disturbances which then prevailed in Mauretania, and was shortly afterwards put to death by order of Hadrian (Dio Cass. lxviii. 8, 22, 30, 32; lxix. 2).
