Ce'stius or Ce'stius Macedonicus

2. CESTIUS, surnamed MACEDONICUS, on account of his having formerly served in Macedonia, was a native of Perusia. When this town was taken by Augustus in B. C. 41, he set fire to his house, which occasioned the conflagration of the whole city, and then stabbed himself and leaped into the flames. (Appian, App. BC 5.49; Veil. Pat. 2.74.)
