M'. Acilius Glabrio

M'. F. C. N. GLABRIO, son of the preceding, dedicated, as duumvir under a decree of the senate, B. C. 181, the Temple of Piety in the herb-market at Rome. The elder Glabrio had vowed this temple on the day of his engagement with Antiochus at Thermopylae, and his son placed in it an equestrian statue of his father, the first gilt statue erected at Rome (Liv. 40.34; V. Max. 2.5.1). Glabrio was one of the curule aediles in B. C. 165, when he superintended the celebration of the Megalensian games (Terent. Andr. tit. fab.), and supplementary consul in B. C. 154, in the room of L. Postumius Albinus, who died in his consular year. (Obseq. de Prod. 76; Fast. Capit.)
