Mu'mmius

*mo/mmios.

1. L. Mummius was tribune of the plebs in B. C. 187. He opposed the bill of M. Porcius Cato for inquiring into the amount of monies paid by Antiochus the Great, king of Syria, as the price of peace in B. C. 188, to the brothers P. and L. Scipiones. Mummius, intimidated by Cato, withdrew his opposition, and the bill was passed. He was praetor in B. C. 177, and obtained Sardinia for his province. In his praetorship Mummius was instructed by the senate to put in force a decree for dismissing to their respective cities all residents at Rome, who were possessed merely of the Jus Latii. (Liv. 37.54, 41.8 )
