O'ppius

17. Oppius Statianus, legate of M. Antonius in his unfortunate canlpaigl against the Parthians in B. D. 36. When Antonius hastened forward to besiege Phraata, he left Oppius with two legions and the baggage to follow him; but Oppius was surprised by the enemy, and he and all his men were cut to pieces. (D. C. 49.25, 44 ; Plut. Ant. 38.)
