8. M. Licinius Lucullus, was praetor peregrinus in B. C. 186, the year that was rendered memorable by the detection of the Bacchanalian societies at Rome. So great was the alarm and confusion caused by this discovery, and by the severe measures adopted by the senate in consequence, that the praetors were compelled to suspend all judicial proceedings for the space of thirty days. (Liv. 39.6, 8, 18.)
