Pompeius

16. SEX. POMPEIUS SEX. F. CN. N., was the son of No. 15, and we may conclude from his praenomen that he was the elder of his two sons. He never obtained any of the higher offices of the state, but acquired great reputation as a man of learning. and is praised by Cicero for his accurate knowledge of jurisprudence, geometry, and the Stoic philosophy. He was present on one occasion in the camp of his brother Strabo during the Social war, B. C. 89, but this is the only time in which his name occurs in public affairs. (Cic. Brut. 47, Philipp. 12.11, De Orat. 1.15, 3.21, De Off. 1.6.)
