Flaccus, Vale'rius

13. C. Vaerius Flaccus was praetor urbanus in B. C. 98, and, on the authority of the senate, he brought a bill before the people that Calliphana, of Velia, should receive the Roman franchise. [CALLIPHANA.] In B. C. 93 he was consul, with M. Herennius, and afterwards he succeeded T. Didius as proconsul in Spain. As the Celtiberians, who had been most cruelly treated by his predecessors, revolted in the town of Belgida, and burnt all their senators in the senate-house, because they refused to join the people, Flaccus took possession of the town by surprise, and put to death all those who had taken part in burning the senate-house. (Cic. pro Balb. 24; Schol. Bob. ad Cic. p. Flacc. p. 233, ed. Orelli; Appian, Hispan. 100.)
