De'crius

commanded a stronghold in Africa during the insurrection of Tacfarinas in A. D. 20. He was a brave and skilful soldier, and led his men out to an open battle, as he did not like the inactivity of a besieged. He had only a few soldiers, and they were not of the best kind; but although he was seriously wounded, he continued to fight like a lion, until he fell. (Tac. Ann. 3.20.)
