Imbrex, C. Lici'nius
an ancient Latin comic poet, quoted by Gellius and Festus, of whose plays only one is expressly mentioned, namely, " Neaera." Vulcatius Sedigitus assigned him the fourth place in the list of Latin comic poets. (Festus, s. vv. Imbrex, Obstitum; Gel. 13.22
.) Vossius conjectured (De Poetis Latinis,
p. 5) that this Licinius Imbrex is the same as the Licinius Tegula mentioned by Livy [TEGULA], because imbrex is a species of tegula, but Festus gives the praenomen of Caius to the former, and Livy that of Publius to the latter.
