Sabi'nus, Cornelius

a tribune of the praetorian troops, was, after Cassius Chaerea, tire principal conspirator against Caligula, and gave him one of the fatal blows. Upon the execution of Chaerea by Claudius, Sabinus voluntarily put an end to his own life, disdaining to survive the associate of his glorious deed (D. C. 59.29, 9.3; Suet. Calig. 58; J. AJ 19.1, 4).
