Lupercus, Mu'mmius

a Roman legate, and commander of the winter-quarters of two legions of the army of the Rhine, was sent by Hordeonius Flaccus against Civilis, by whom he was defeated and driven into Vetera Castra, the fortifications of which he repaired, and where he maintained himself bravely against the insurgents, till his soldiers, starving and dispirited, and solicited by the emissaries of Classicus, surrendered to Civilis, A. D. 69-70. [CIVILIS; CLASSICUS.] Lupercus was sent among the presents to the German prophetess Veleda, who had predicted the success of the insurgents; but he was killed on the journey. (Tac. Hist. 4.18, 22, 23, 61.)
