5. EGNATIUS, probably a son of No. 4, accompanied Crassus on his expedition against the Parthians, and after the great defeat which Crassus sustained (B. C. 53), escaped from the scene of the disaster with 300 horsemen. (Plut. Crassus,
27.) Appian (App. BC 4.21
) mentions two Egnatii, father and son, who were included in the proscription of the year B. C. 43, and were slain by a single blow, while locked in each other's arms. They were perhaps the same with the two last.
