Peti'llius

1, 2. Q. Petillii, two tribunes of the plebs, B. C. 185, are said to have been instigated by Cato the Censor, to accuse Scipio Africanus the elder, of having been bribed by Antiochus to allow that monarch to come off too leniently; but according to other authorities it was M. Naevius and not the Petillii who brought the charge. On the death of Africanus in this year, the Petillii brought forward a bill for making an iquiry respecting the persons who had received money from Antiochus without paying it into the treasury. 49 (Liv. 38.50, 54, 56; comp. Gel. 4.18; Aur. Vict. de Vir. Ill.) [NAEVIUS, No. 4.]
