surnamed Pseudomarius, a person of low origin, who pretended to be either the son or grandson of the great Marius. On the death of Julius Caesar B. C. 44, he came forward as a popular leader, and erected an altar to Caesar on the spot where his body had been burnt. He was, however, shortly afterwards seized by the consul Antony and put to death without a trial. This illegal act was approved of by the senate in consequence of the advantages they derived from it. Valerius Maximus (9.15.2) says, that his name was Herophilus. (Appian, App. BC 3.2, 3; Liv. Epit. 116; Cic. Att. 12.49, 14.6-8, Philipp. 1.2; Nicolaus Damascenus, Vit. Aug. 100.14. p. 258, ed. Coraes.)
