5. One of the Thespian ambassadors, who appeared at Chalcis before the Roman commissioners, Marcius and Atilius, to make a surrender of their city, renouncing the alliance of Perseus, B. C. 172. In common with the deputies from all the Boeotian towns, except Thebes, they were favourably received by the Romans, whose object was to dissolve the Boeotian confederacy,--an object accomplished in the same year. (Plb. 27.1, 2; Liv. 42.43, 44; Clinton, Fast. ii. p. 80, iii. p. 398.)
