Luci'lius

5. LUCILIUS, fought on the side of Brutus at the battle of Philippi, B. C. 42, and when the republican army was in flight and the enemy had nearly overtaken Brutus, he represented himself to be the latter in order to save his friend. He was brought before M. Antony, who was so struck with his magnanimity, that he not only forgave him, but treated him ever afterwards as one of his most intimate friends. (Appian, App. BC 4.129; Plut. Brut. 50, Anton. 69.)
