Sabi'nus, Ju'lius

a Lingon, joined in the revolt of Classicus, A. D. 70, his ambition being excited not only by his natural vanity, but ty a false idea that he was descended from Julius Caesar. He ordered his followers to salute him as Cuesar; and with a large irregular body of Lingons he attacked the Sequani, and was defeated. He fled to a villa belonging to him, which he burnt, that he might be supposed to have perished in the flames, and hid himself in some subterranean chambers, where he was kept concealed for nine years by his friends and his wife Epponina, or Peponila. He was at length captured, taken to Rome, and there put to death by order of Vespasian. (Tac. Hist. 4.55, 67; D. C. 66.3, 16; Plut. Erot. 25, pp. 770, 771; CLASSICUS..)
