M. Lu'rius

praefect of Sardinia, under Augustus, in B. C. 40, was expelled from that island by Menas, Sextus Pompey's lieutenant. Lurius commanded the right wing of the Caesariaa fleet at the battle of Actium, B. C. 31. (D. C. 48.30; Veil. Pat. 2.85; comp. Plut. Ant. 65, 66; Appian, App. BC 5.55.) No family of the Lurii is known: but there is extant a coin of the moneyers of Augustus bearing on its obverse the legend " P. LURIUS AGRIPPA III. VIR. A. A. A. F. F." (Ursin. Farm. Rom.; Vaillant, "LURII.")
