Palma, A. Corne'lius

was consul in A. D. 99, and a second time in 109. Between his first and second consulships, he was governor of Syria and conquered the part of Arabia in the neighbour hood of Petra, about A.D. 105 (D. C. 68.14). Palma had always been one of Hadrian's enemies, and was therefore put to death by that emperor upon his accession to the throne in 117. (Dio Cass. Ixix. 2; Spart. Hadr. 4.)
