Mer'ula

2. CN. (CORNELIUS?) MERULA, was appointed legatus by the senate in B. C. 162-161, to adjust the disputes between the brothers Ptolemy Philometor and Physcon respecting the sovereignty of Cyprus. Merula accompanied Physcon to Crete and Asia Minor, and, after an ineffectual embassy to the elder brother at Alexandria, he induced the senate, on his return to Rome, to cancel the existing treaty with Philometor. (Plb. 31.18, 25, 26, 7, 32.1.)
