he arrived in B. C. 13. After his tribunician power had been prolonged for five years, he went to Pannonia to restore tranquillity to that province. He returned in B. C. 12, after having been successful as usual, and retired to Campania. There he died unexpectedly, in the month of March, B. C. 12, in his 51st year. His body was carried to Rome, and was buried in the mausoleum of Augustus, who himself pronounced a funeral oration over it. Dio Cassius tells us (52.1, &c.), that in the year B. C. 29 Augustus assembled his friends and counsellors Agrippa and Maecenas, demanding opinion as to whether it would be advisable for him to usurp monarchical power, or to restore to the nation its former republican government. This is corroborated by Suetonius (Octav. 28), who says that Augustus twice deliberated upon that subject. The speeches which Agrippa and Maecenas delivered on this occasion are given by Dio Cassius; but the artificial character of them makes them suspicious. However it doe

Anti'ochus Ii. (*)Anti/oxos), king of COMMAGENE, succeeded Mithridates I., and was summoned to Rome by Augustus and executed in B. C. 29, because he had caused the assassination of an ambassador, whom his brother had sent to Rome. Augustus gave the kingdom to Mithridates II., who was then a boy, because his father had been murdered by the king. (D. C. 52.43, 54.9
Appuleius 7. SEX. APPULEIUS SEX. F. SEX. N., consul in B. C. 29. He afterwards went to Spain as proconsul, and obtained a triumph in B. C. 26, for the victories he had gained in that country. (D. C. 51.20; Fast. Capitol.
but when she found that Augustus only wanted to spare her that she might adorn his triumph, she put an end to her life. [ANTONIUS, No. 12.] Egypt was made a Roman province, and the booty which Augustus obtained was so immense, that he could easily satisfy the demands of his army. At Rome the senate and people rivalled each other in devising new honours and distinctions for Augustus, who was now alone at the head of the Roman world. In Samos he entered upon his fifth consulship for the year B. C. 29. The senate sanctioned all his acts, and conferred upon him many extraordinary rights and privileges. The temple of Janus was closed, as peace was restored throughout the empire. In August of the same year, Augustus returned to Rome, and celebrated his threefold triumph over the Pannonians and Dalmatians, Antony and Egypt; and he obtained the title of imperator for ever. After these solemnities were over, Augustus undertook the consulship for the year 28 together with his friend Agrippa.
Clu'vius 6. C. Cluvius, made consul suffectus in B. C. 29 by Augustus. (D. C. 52.42.) It was probably this Cluvius who in B. C. 45 was appointed by Caesar to superintend the assignment of lands in Gallia Cisalpina, when Cicero wrote to hinm on behalf of the town of Atella. (Ad Fam. 13.7.) This same Cluvius also is probably referred to in a funeral oration of the age of Augustus. (Orelli, Inscr. No. 4859.) The annexed coin, struck in the third dictatorship of Caesar, seems to belong to this Cluvius. Its obverse represents the head of Victory, with CAESAR DIC. TER.; its reverse Pallas, with C. CLOVI PRAEF.
Dapyx (*Da/puc), the chief of a tribe of the Getae. When Crassus was in Thrace, B. C. 29, Roles, another chief of the Getae, was at war with Dapyx, and called in the assistance of Crassus. Dapyx was defeated, and obliged to take refuge in a stronghold, where he was besieged. A Greek, who was in the place, betrayed it to Crassus, and as soon as the Getae perceived the treachery, they killed one another, that they might not fall into the hands of the Romans. Dapyx too ended his life on that day. (D. C. 51.26.) [L.
position in his native place before he emigrated to Rome; though some have inferred from his work on rhetoric, that he enjoyed a great reputation at Halicarnassus. All that we know for certain is, the information which he himself gives us in the introduction to his history of Rome (1.7), and a few more particulars which we may glean from his other works. According to his own account, he went to Italy immediately after the termination of the civil wars, about the middle of Ol. 187, that is, B. C. 29. Henceforth he remained at Rome, and the twentytwo years which followed his arrival at Rome were mainly spent by him in making himself acquainted with the Latin language and literature, and in collecting materials for his great work on Roman history, called Archaeologia. We may assume that, like other rhetoricians of the time, he had commenced his career as a teacher of rhetoric at Halicarnassus; and his works bear strong evidence of his having been similarly occupied at Rome. (De Comp. Ver
e the surrender of Perusia, and his reception by Augustus was such as to awaken in the Antonian party suspicions of his fidelity. (Appian, App. BC 5.30, 40, 41; D. C. 48.13, 14.) In B. C. 35 he was prefect of Asia Minor, under M. Antony, where he took prisoner Sex. Pompeius, who had fled thither after his defeat by Agrippa, B. C. 36. (Appian, App. BC 5.137-142.) After the battle of Actium, B. C. 31, Furnius, through the mediation of his son C. Furnius, was reconciled to Augustus (Senec. De Benef. 2.25), and received from him the rank of a consular senator (D. C. 52.42), and was afterwards appointed one of the supplementary consuls, in B. C. 29, which is the first time the name of Furnius appears on the consular Fasti. He was prefect of Hither Spain in B. C. 21. (D. C. 54.5; Flor. 4.12.) Furnius is probably mentioned by the author, De Oratoribus (100.21) among the speakers whose meagre and obsolete diction rendered their works impossible to read without an inclination to sleep or smile.

Gallus, No'nius a Roman general of the time of Augustus, who in B. C. 29 defeated the Treviri and Germans. (D. C. 51.20.) He may possibly be the same as the Nonius who, according to Plutarch (Plut. Cic. 38), fought under Pompey against Caesar. [L.S]
