Si'lius

4. P. Silius, governed Bithynia and Pontus as propraetor in B. C. 51, at the same time as Cicero governed Cilicia as proconsul, Bibulus Syria, and Thermus Asia. Silius was a friend of Atticus (Cic. Att. 6.1.13, 7.1.8). Several of Cicero's letters are addressed to this Silius. He consulted Cicero on a legal point in B. C. 44, the explanation of which has exercised the ingenuity of modern jurists. (Cic. Fam. 7.21, ad Att. 15.23, 24; P. E. Huschke, De Causa Siliana, Rostochii, 1824, and also in his Studien, Breslau, 1830, vol. i.) This Silius was probably the father of P. Silius Nerva, consul in B. C. 20. [SILIUS NERVA.]
