1. P. Licinius Crassus, C. F. P. N., was grandson of P. Licinius Varus, who was praetor B. C. 208. In B. C. 176 he was praetor, and pleaded that he was bound to perform a solemn sacrifice as an excuse for not proceeding to his province, Hither Spain. In B. C. 171 he was consul, and appointed to the command against Perseus. He advanced through Epeirus to Thessaly, and was defeated by the king in an engagement of cavalry. (Liv. xli., xlii., xliii.) During his command, he oppressed the Athenians by excessive requisitions of corn to supply his troops, and was accused on this account to the senate.
