C. Ma'rius or M. Ma'rius

3. C. or M. MARIUS, whom Appian calls the other (ἕτερος) C. Marius, was a relation of the great Marius, and fled to Cinna, when the latter was driven out of Rome by his colleague Octavius, B. C. 87. (Appian, App. BC 1.65.) As Appian calls this C. Marius a senator, he is probably the same as the M. Marius who settled some of the Celtiberi in a town not far from Colenda, because they had assisted him in a war against the Lusitanians. This happened about the year B. C. 99, when Marius was probably quaestor. (Appian, App. Hisp. 100.)
