Taurus, Stati'lius

4. M. Statilius Taurus was consul A. D. 44 with L. Quintius Crispinus Secundus. and afterwards governed Africa as proconsul. He possessed great wealth, which proved his ruin. Agrippina, coveting his gardens, got Tarquitius Priscus, who had been the legate of Taurus in Africa. to accuse the latter of repetundac and of magic. Taurus put an end to his own life before the senate pronounced sentence. (D. C. 9.13; Tac. Ann. 12.59, 14.46.)
