Macer, Pompe'ius

was one of the praetors in A. D. 15, and put the question to the senate, whether there should be an extension of the Lex Majestatis. His praetorship therefore marks the epoch at which the government of Tiberius began to assume its worse and darker features. (Tac. Ann. 1.72; Suet. Tib. 58; comp. D. C. 57.19; Sen. de Ben. 3.26; and see Majestas, s. v. Dict. of Antiq.
