Matho, Pompo'nius

2. M. Pomponius Matho, M'. F. M'. N., brother of the preceding, consul B. C. 231 with C. Papirius Maso, was also engaged in war against the Sardinians, and employed dogs which he procured from Italy to hunt out the inhabitants, who had taken refuge in woods and caves. (Zonar. 8.18, p. 401.) For the same reasons which have been mentioned above, in the case of his brother, we believe that he is the same as the M. Pomponius, who, Livy tells us (22.7), was praetor in B. C. 217, the second year of the war with Hannibal. Maso died in B. C. 204, at which time he was both augur and decemvir sacrorum. (Liv. 29.38.)
