Lenti'cula, Lici'nius

called in some manuscripts of Cicero Denticula, was one of Antony's dissolute companions, who had been condemned for gambling, but was restored by Antony to his former status. Dio Cassius falsely states that he was recalled from banishment by Antony; but it would seem that infamia was a consequence of being condemned for gambling, and that he was restored by Antony to his full rights as a citizen. (Cic. Phil. 2.23; Abram. and Garaton. ad loc. ; D. C. 45.47.)
