Hosi'dius Geta

1. Was proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, and rescued by the ingenious piety of his son, who, pretending that his father had laid violent hands on himself, performed the funeral rites for him, and concealed him meanwhile on one of his farms. To disguise himself more effectually, the elder Hosidius wore a bandage over one eye. He was finally pardoned, but his simulated blindness was carried on so long as to cause real privation of sight. (Appian, App. BC 4.41 ; Dion. Cass. 47.10.)
