8. C. Sulpicius
, SER. F. GALBA, apparently a son of No. 6, and son-in-law of P. Crassus Mucianus, was quaestor in B. C. 120. During the transactions with Jugurtha he was accused of having been bribed by the Nunidian, and was condemned in B. C. 110 by a lex Mamilia. Cicero states that C. Sulpicius Galba enjoyed great favour with his contemporaries for his father's sake. His defence against the charge of being bribed by Jugurtha was read by Cicero when yet a boy, and delighted him so much that he learned it by heart.
At the time of his condemnation he belonged to the college of pontiffs, and was the first priest that was ever condemned at Rome by a judicium publicam.
