2. M. Erucius
Clarus, brother of the preceding, is spoken of by Pliny (Plin. Ep. 2.9
), as a man of honour, integrity, and learning, and well skilled in pleading causes.
He is probably the same as the Erucius Clarus who took and burnt Seleuceia, in conjunction with Julius Alexander, in A. D. 115 (D. C. 68.30
), and also the same as the M. Erucius Clarus, who was consul suffectus with Ti. Julius Alexander, in A. D. 117, the year of Trajan's death.
