Geta, C. Lici'nius consul B. C. 116, was expelled from the senate by the censors of the following year, who at the same time degraded thirty-one of the other senators. Geta was restored to his rank at a subsequent census, and was himself censor in B. C. 108. (Cic. Clu. 42; V. Max. 2.9.9.) [W.B.D]

Brut. 56), of high character, familiarly acquainted with the Greek and Latin writers in general, and especially deeply versed in the antiquities of his own country, some of which, such as the hymns of the Salii and the Laws of the Twelve Tables, he illustrated by commentaries. Varro, having imbibed from this preceptor a taste for these pursuits, which he cultivated in after life with so much devotion and success, completed his education by attending the lectures of Anti
