29. M. Pompeius
, the commander of the cavalry under Lucullus, in the third Mithridatic war.
He was wounded and taken prisoner (Appian, App. Mith. 79
; Memnon, 45, ed. Orelli). Plutarch calls him Pomponius (Lucull.
15), which Schweighäuser has introduced into the text of Appian, though all the MSS. of Appian have Pompeius.
