After the destruction of Troy, Agamemnon and
Cassandra were killed; but Orestes, that was brought up
with Strophius, revenged the death of his father.—Pyrander's Fourth Book of Peloponnesian Histories.
Fabius Fabricianus, a kinsman of Fabius Maximus,
having taken Tuxium, the chief city of the Samnites, sent
to Rome the image of Venus Victrix, which among them
was held in great veneration. His wife Fabia was debauched by Petronius Valentinus, a handsome young man,
and afterwards she treacherously murdered her husband;
but for her son Fabricianus who was yet in his infancy,
she shifted him away to be privately brought up, and so
provided for his security. When he was grown up, he
destroyed both his mother and the adulterer, and was formally acquitted for it by a decree of the Senate.—Dositheus's Third Book of Italian History.
