2. One of the private secretaries of C. Julius Caesar. After Caesar's assassination, in B. C. 44, Antony attached to himself Faberius, by whose aid lie inserted whatever he chose into the late dictator's papers.
Since a decree of the senate had previously declared all Caesar's acts, and his will, valid and bindilig on the state, Antony, by employing one of Caesar's own secretaries, could insert, without danger of detection, whatever he wished into the papers (ὑπομνήματα
),since the autoraph of Faberius made it difficult to distinguish the genuine from the spurious memoranda. (Appian, App. BC 3.5
.) Dio Cassius (44.3) says that Antony secured the services of Caesar's secretaries, but he does not name Faberius.
