L. Priscillia'nus

acquired unenviable celebrity as an informer, under Caracalla, by whom he was made praefect of Achaia. He was celebrated also for his gladiatorial skill in wild beast fights, and eventually was banished to an island, during the reign of Macrinus, at the instance of the senate, whose hatred he had incurred by procuring the destruction of several members of their body. (D. C. 78.21.)
