Varro, Tere'ntius

2. A TERENTIUS VARRO, served in Greece in B. C. 189, and was elected praetor in B. C. 184, when he obtained Nearer Spain as his province. He carried on the war with success, defeated the Celtiberi in several battles, and on his return to Rome in B. C. 182, received the honour of an ovation, which is recorded in the Triumphal Fasti. In B. C. 172, Varro was sent on an embassy to the Illyrian king Gentius, and in B. C. 167 was one of the ten commissioners appointed to settle the affairs of Macedonia, in conjunction with Aemilius Paulus after the conquest of Perseus. (Liv. 37.48, 49, 39.32, 38, 41, 56, 40.2, 16.)
