7. C. Herennius
, was tribune of the plebs in B. C. 80, and opposed a rogatio of L. Sulla, the dictator, for recalling Cn. Pompey from Africa. (Sall. Hist.
ii. apud Gell.
10.20; comp. Plut. Pomp. 13
After the death of Sulla, this Herennius probably joined Sertorius in Spain, B. C. 76-72: since a legatus of that name was defeated and slain by Pompey near Valentia. (Plut. Pomp. 18
; Zonar. 10.2
; Sall. Hist.
p. 215. ed. Gerlach. min.) Whether C. Herenniss, a senator, convicted (before B. C. 69) of peculation (Cic. in Verr.
1.13.39), were the same person, is uncertain.
