5. An Epeirot, who in B. C. 170 engaged in a plot for seizing A. Hostilius, the Roman consul, on his way through Epeirus into Thessaly, and delivering him up to Perseus. The design would probably have succeeded, had not Hostilius changed his route, and, having sailed to Anticyra, made his way thence into Thessaly. In the following year we find Philostratus co-operating successfully in Epeirus with Clevas, the Macedonian general, against Appius Claudius. (Plb. 27.14; Liv. 43.23.)
