Torqua'tus, Ma'nlius

11. A. Manlius Torquatus, probably son of No. 10, was praetor in B. C. 52, when he presided at the trial of Milo for bribery. On the breaking out of the civil war he espoused the side of Pompey, and after the defeat of the latter retired to Athens, where he was living in exile in B. C. 45. He was an intimate friend of Cicero, who addressed four letters to him (ad Fam. 6.1-4) while he was in exile. (Ascon. in Cic. Mil. pp. 40, 54, ed. Orelli; Cic. Att. 5.1, 4, 21, 6.1, 7.14, 9.8, de Fin. 2.22.)
