Licinus, the son of No. 2, dedicated, as duumvir in B. C. 181, the temple to Venus Erycina, which his father had vowed in the Ligurian war.
This temple, which was called after the celebrated temple of Venus at Eryx in Sicily, was situated outside the Colline gate, and is mentioned by Livy, by prolepsis, as in existence as early as the year B. C. 202. (Liv. 30.38
.) Licinus was appointed in B. C. 172 to conduct to Brundusium from the docks at Rome the fleet which was to convey to Greece the troops destined for the war against Perseus. (Liv. 40.34
