Sca'pula, Osto'rius

2. P. Ostorius Scapula, the son of the preceding, fought under his father in Britain, in A. D. 50; and received the reward of a corona civica, for saving the life of a Roman citizen in battle. In A. D. 62, he appeared as a witness in favour of Antistius Sosianus, who was accused of having recited in his house some libellous verses against the emperor Nero; but his services were repaid with ingratitude; for, in A. D. 64, the same Sosianus accused him to the emperor. He was condemned to death, and put an end to his own life. (Tac. Ann. 12.31, 14.48, 16.14, 15.)
