Re'stio, A'ntius

1. The author of a sumptuary law, which, besides limiting the expence of entertainments, enacted that no magistrate or magistrate elect should dine abroad anywhere except at the houses of certain persons. This law, however, was little observed; and we are told that Antius never dined out afterwards, that he might not see his own law violated. We do not know in what year this law was passed; but it was subsequent to the sumptuary law of the consul Aemilius Lepidus, B. C. 78, and before the one of Caesar (Gel. 2.24; Macr. 2.13).
