Gallus, Surdi'nius

a wealthy Roman of the time of the emperor Claudius. When Claudius, in A. D. 46, removed a number of persons from the senate, because they had not sufficient means to keep up the senatorial dignity, Surdinius Gallus was preparing to go and settle at Carthage, but Claudius called him back, saying that he would tie him with golden chains; and Surdinius was made a senator. (D. C. 60.29.)
