Piso

2. C. Calpurnius Piso, C. F. C. N., son of No. 1, was praetor B. C. 186, and received Further Spain as his province. He continued in his province as propraetor in B. C. 185, and on his return to Rome in 184 obtained a triumph for a victory he had gained over the Lusitani and Celtiberi. In B. C. 181 he was one of the three commissioners for founding the colony of Graviscae in Etruria, and in B. C. 180 he was consul with A. Postumius Albinus. Piso died during his consulship; he was no doubt carried off by the pestilence which was then raging at Rome, but the people suspected that he had been poisoned by his wife Quarta Hostilia, because her son by a former marriage, Q. Fulvius Flaccus, succeeded Piso as consul suffeetus. (Liv. 39.6, 8, 21, 30, 31, 42, 40.29, 35, 37.)
