Sacerdos, C. Lici'nius
2. The grandson of the preceding, bore an unblemished character.
He was praetor B. C. 75, and in the following year had the government of Sicily, in which he was succeeded by Verres.
He subsequently served as legate under Q. Metellus in Crete, and was a candidate for the consulship at the same comitia in which Cicero and Antonius were elected. Cicero frequently mentions him in his orations against Verres, and contrasts his upright administration of Sicily with the corrupt and unjust proceedings of his successor. (Cic. Ver. 1.10
, 46, 50, 2.28, 3.50, 92, pro Planc.
1; Ascon. in Tog. Cand.
p. 82, ed. Orelli.)
