Pano'pion, Urbi'nius

was proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, but was preserved by the extraordinary fidelity of one of his slaves who exchanged dresses with his master, dismissed him by the back-door as the soldiers were entering the villa, then placed himself in the bed of Panopion, and allowed himself to be killed as if he were the latter. Panopion afterwards testified his gratitude by erecting a handsome monument over his slave (V. Max. 6.8.6; Macrob. Saturn. 1.11). Appian calls the master Appius (B. C. 4.44); and Dio Cassius (47.10) and Seneca (de Benef 3.25) relate the event, but without mentioning any name.
