Androni'cus (*)Andro/nikos), ambassador of ATTALUS, sent to Rome in B. C. 156, to inform the senate that Prusias had attacked the territories of Attalus. (Plb. 32.26.) Andronicus was again sent to Rome in B. C. 149, and assisted Nicomedes in conspiring against his father Prusias. (Appian, Aithr. 4, &c

he ground that it did not befit them to go to war at all without the sanction of the Romans. (Plb. 33.15.) Three years after this, B. C. 150, Menalcidas, then general of the league, having been bribed by the Oropians with 10 talents to aid them against the Athenians, from whose garrison in their town they had received injury, engaged Callicrates in the same cause by the promise of half the sum. The payment, however, he evaded, and Callicrates retaliated on Menalcidas by a capital charge; but Menalcidas escaped the danger through the favour of Diaeus, his successor in the office of general, whom he bribed with three talents. In B. C. 149, Callicrates was sent as ambassador to Rome with Diaeus, to oppose the Spartan exiles, whose blanishllellt Diaeus had procured, and who hoped to be restored by the senate. Callicrates, however, died at Rhodes, where they had touched on their way; "his death," says Pausanias "being, for aught I know, a clear gain to his country." (Paus. 7.11, 12.) [E.E]

r with extraodinary repute, and was the only Cato who ever filled it. In order to ascertain the date of Cato's birth, we have to consider the testimony of ancient writers as to his age at the time of his death, which is known to have happened B. C. 149. How far we are to go back from this date is a question upon which the authorities are not unanimous. According to the consistent chronology of Cicero (Senect. 4), Cato was born B. C. 234, in the year preceding the first consulship of Q. Fabiusuittal chiefly through the compassion excited by the theatrical parade of his young weeping sons and orphan ward. Cato made a powerful speech against Galba, and inserted it in the 7th book of his Origines, a few days or months before his death, B. C. 149, at the age of 85. (Cic. Brutus, 23.) Cato was twice married; first to Licinia, a lady of small property but noble birth, who bore a son, M. Porcius Cato Licinianus, the jurist, and lived to an advanced age. After her death he secretly cohabi
Censori'nus 2. L. Marcius Censorinus, C. F. C. N., consul with M'. Manilius in B. C. 149, the first year of the third Punic war. Both consuls were ordered to proceed to Carthage: the command of the army was entrusted to Manilius, and that of the fleet to Censorinus. In the negotiations between the consuls and Carthaginians which preceded actual hostilities, and of which Appian has given us a detailed account, Censorinus acted as spokesman because he was the better orator. After the Carthaginians had refused compliance with the commands of the Romans, who required them to abandon Carthage and build another town not less than ten miles from the sea, the consuls formally laid siege to the city; but Censorinus was compelled shortly afterwards to return to Rome in order to hold the comitia, leaving the conduct of the siege in the hands of his colleague.

Cethe'gus 6. L. Cornelius Cethegus, one of the chief supporters of a bill brought in (B. C. 149) by L. Scribonius Libo, tribune of the plebs, to impeach Serv. Sulpicius Galba for breach of his word, in putting some of the Lusitanians to death, and selling others as slaves. (Liv. Epit. 49; Cic. de Orat. 1.52, Brut. 23, ad Att. 12.5.)
e supposed to have been held, was the Latinae feriae, in the consulship of C. Sempronius Tuditanus and M.' Aquillius, B. C. 129; the dramatis personae consisted of the younger Africanus, in whose suburban gardens the scene is laid, and to whom the principal part is assigned; his bosom friend C. Laelius the Wise; L. Furius Philus, consul B. C. 136, celebrated in the annals of the Numantine war, and bearing the reputation of an eloquent and cultivated speaker (Brut. 28); M.' Manilius, consul B. C. 149, under whom Scipio served as military tribune at the outbreak of the third Punic war, probably the same person as Manilius the famous jurisconsult; Sp. Mummius, the brother of him who sacked Corinth, a man of moderate acquirements, addicted to the discipline of the Porch; Q. Aelius Tubero, son of Aemilia, sister of Africanus, a prominent opponent of the Gracchi, well skilled in law and logic, but no orator; P. Rutilius Rufus, consul B. C. 105, the most worthy citizen, according to Velleius
scourse of Carneades, and was intended to exhibit the consolation which philosophy supplies even under the greatest calamities. (Cic. Tusc. 3.22.) Cicero sterns indeed to have paid a good deal of attention to the works of Cleitomachus, and speaks in high terms of his industry, penetration, and philosophical talent. (Acad. 2.6, 31.) He sometimes translates from the works of Cleitomachus, as for instance from the " De sustinendis Offensionibus," which was in four books. (Acad. 2.31.) Cleitomachus appears to have been well known to his contemporaries at Rome, for two of his works were dedicated to illustrious Romans; one to the poet C. Lucilius, and the other to L. Censorinus, consul in B. C. 149. (Cic. Ac. 2.32.) Cleitomachus probably treated of the history of philosophy in his work on the philosophical sects (peri\ ai(re/sewn). (D. L. 2.92.) (Fabric. Bibl. Graec. iii. p. 168; Brucker, list. Phil. i. p. 771; Orelli, Onom. Tull. ii. pp. 159, 160 ; Suid. s. v. *Kleito/maxos.) [A.S]

the senate what forces Masinissa was ready to furnish for the war with Macedonia, and warning them against the alleged perfidy of the Carthaginians, who were preparing, he said, a large fleet, ostensibly to aid the Romans, but with the intention of using it on the side to which their own interest should seem to point. Again we hear of his being sent by his father to Carthage, to require the restoration of those who had been exiled for. attachment to his cause. On the death of Masinissa, in B. C. 149, Scipio portioned his royal prerogatives among his sons, assigning to Gulussa, whom Appian mentions as a skilful general, the decision of peace and war. In the third Punic war, which broke out in the same year, Gulussa joined the Romans, and appears to have done them good service. In B. C. 148 he was present at the siege of Carthage, and acted as mediator, though unsuccessfully, between Scipio and Hasdrubal, the Carthaginian commander. He and his brother Manastabal were carried off by sic
