20. APP. CLAUDIUS APP. F. P. N. PULCHER, son of No. 17. In B. C. 197 and the three following years, he served as military tribune under T. Quinctius Flamininus in Greece in the war with Philip. (Liv. 32.35, 36, 33.29, 34.50.) We find him again in Greece in 191, serving first under M. Baebius in the war with Antiochus (36.10), and afterwards under the consul M'. Acilius Glabrio against the Aetolians. (36.22, 30.) In 187 he was made praetor, and Tarentum fell to him by lot as his province. (38.42.) In 185 he was elected consul, and gained some advantages over the Ingaunian Ligurians, and, by his violent interference at the comitia, procured the election of his brother Publius to the consulship. (39.23, 32.) In 184, when Philip was preparing for a new war with the Romans, Appius was sent at the head of an embassy into Macedonia and Greece, to observe his movements and wrest from his grasp the cities of which he had made himself master. (39.33-39.) In 176 he was one of an embassy. sent to the Aetolians, to bring about a cessation of their internal hostilities and oppose the machinations of Perseus. (41.25, 27.)
