M'. Acilius Glabrio

was consul with Trajan in A. D. 91. The auguries which promised Trajan the empire, predicted death to his colleague in the consulship. To gain the favour of Domitian, Glabrio fought as a gladiator in the amphitheatre attached to the emperor's villa at Alba, and slew a lion of unusual size. Glabrio was first banished and afterwards put to death by Domitian. (Suet. Dom. 10; D. C. 67.12, 14; Juv. Sat. 4.94.)
