was a leading man at Chalcis, in Euboea, attached to the Roman, and opposed to the Aetolian party in that island during the war between Antiochus the Great and Rome, B. C. 192. He defended Chalcis by means of a league between the Chalcidians, Eretrians, and Carystians, and rejected the proposals of the Aetolians to remain neutral between Antiochus and the Romans. In B. C. 170 Mictio appeared before the senate at Rome as the chief of a deputation sent from Chalcis to complain of the cruelty and extortions of two successive praetors in Greece, C. Lucretius and L. Hortensius. Mictio, who was lame, was allowed to plead from a litter--a privilege till then unheard of--and, on his return, was conveyed to Brundisium in a carriage at the public cost. (Liv. 35.38, 46, 43.7, 8.)
