Scaurus, Aure'lius

2. M. Aurelius Scaurus, was consul suffectus in B. C. 108. Three years afterwards, B. C. 105, he was consular legate in Gaul, where he was defeated by the Cimbri, and taken prisoner. When he was brought before the leaders of the Cimbri, he warned them not to cross the Alps, as they would find it impossible to subdue the Romans, and was thereupon killed on the spot by Boiorix, one of the chiefs. He is erroneously called by Velleius Paterculus consul, instead of consularis (Liv. Epit. 67 ; Oros. 5.16; Vell. 2.12 ; Tac. Germ. 37.) This M. Aurelius Scaurus is erroneously called M. Aemilius Scaurus by many modern writers.
