shocking spectacle. It was a fresh cause of lamentation to see them floating down the stream, and the soldiers stripping them, and certain miscreants, as well as the soldiers, carrying off the clothing of the better class as their own property. This insurrection was suppressed, but with terror and hatred for the triumvirs. The famine grew worse. The people groaned, but did not stir.

y Catullus, that the brief references to them in the commentary on the individual poems may suffice. The names of all these, with references to the poems in which they are addressed or mentioned, may be found in the Index of Proper Names at the end of this volume. 56. It is a temptation to identify the Alfenus to whom the remonstrance of c. 30 is addressed with P. Alfenus Varus, consul suffectus 39 B.C., especially if he, in turn, can be identified with the Alfenus Varus who protected Vergil's property at Mantua (Ecl. 1, 6, 9), who was perhaps a native of Cremona (though falsely identified by the scholiasts on Horace with Alfenus vafer of Sat. 1.3.130). For if Varus was at Cremona during the winter and spring of 55-54 B.C., while Catullus was at Verona (cf. § 40), we perhaps have a key to the difference in

He describes a certain journey of his from Rome to Brundusium with great pleasantry. HAVING Octavius and Antony, both aspiring to the sovereign power, must necessarily have had frequent quarrels and dissensions. Their reconciliations were of short continuance, because they were insincere. Among many negotiations, undertaken by their common friends to reconcile them, history mentions two more particularly. The first in the year 714, the other in 717, which was concluded by the mediation of Octavia, and to which our poet was carried by Maecenas. left mighty Rome, Aricia received me in but a middling inn: Heliodorus the rhetorician, most learned in the Greek language, was my fellow-traveler: thence we proceeded to Forum-Appi, stuffed with sailors and surly landlords.

n conspectu totius urbis (de domo 10 ; ef. 103, 114; pro Planeio 66; ad Att. ii. 24. 3; Plut. Cie. 8). Cieero bought this house in 62 B.C. for HS. 3,500,000 (ad Fam. v. 6. 2 ; Gell. xii. 12) from Marcus Crassus (not P. Crassus as stated in Ps. Sall. in Cic. 2; Ps. Cie. in Sail. 14, 20). It adjoined the PORTICUS CATULI (q.v.), and was built on the site previously occupied by the house of the tribune M. Livius Drusus (Vell. ii. 14). When Cicero was banished, Clodius burned his house, enlarged the porticus of Catulus, and erected a shrine of Libertas (de domo 62, 16; App. BC ii. 15; Vell. ii. 45; Plut. Cie. 33; Cass. Dio xxxviii. 17. 6). After Cicero's recall legal proceedings were instituted, and he recovered the site, and damages sufficient to partially rebuild the house (Cass. Dio xxxix. II and 20 ; adAtt. iv. I. 7, 2.5, 3.2). The house afterwards belonged to L. Marcius Censorinus, consul in 39 B.C., and to Statilius Sisenna, consul in 16 A.D. (Vell. ii. 14; HJ 58; Gilb. iii. 418-9)
Anto'nia 5. The elder of the two daughters of M. Antonius by Octavia, the sister of Augustus, was born B. C. 39, and was married to L. Domitius Ahenobarbus, Cos.. B. C. 16. Her son by this marriage, Cn. Domitius, was the father of the emperor Nero. [See the Stemma, p. 84.] According to Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 4.44, 12.64), this Antonia was the younger daughter; but we have followed Suetonius (Suet. Nero 5) and Plutarch (Plut. Ant. 87) in calling her the elder. (Compare D. C. 51.15.)

and defeated Saxa, Antony's quaestor. Labienus penetrated into Cilicia, where he took Saxa prisoner and put him to death; and while he was engaged with a portion of the army in subduing Asia Minor, Pacorus was prosecuting conquests with the other part in Syria, Phoenicia, and Palestine. These successes at length roused Antony from his inactivity. He sent against the Parthians Ventidius, the ablest of his legates, who soon changed the face of affairs. He defeated Labienus at Mount Taurus in B. C. 39, and put him to death when he fell into his hands shortly after the battle. By this victory he recovered Cilicia; and by the defeat shortly afterwards of Pharnapates, one of the Parthian generals, he also regained Syria. (D. C. 48.24-41; Veil. Pat. 2.78; Liv. Epit. 127; Flor. 4.9; Plut. Ant. 100.33; Appian, App. BC 5.65.) In the following year, B. C. 38, Pacorus again invaded Syria with a still larger army, but was completely defeated in the district called Cyrrhestice. Pacorus himself fell
Pompeius, who had had no share in these transactions, continued to cut off the provisions of Rome, which was suffering greatly from scarcity : scenes of violence and outrage at Rome shewed the exasperation of the people. Augustus could not hope to satisfy the Romans unless their most urgent wants were satisfied by sufficient supplies of food, and this could not be effected in any other way but by a reconciliation with Pompeius. Augustus had an interview with him on the coast of Misenum, in B. C. 39, at which Pompeius received the proconsulship and the islands of Sicily, Sardinia, and Corsica, together with the province of Achaia. In return for these concessions he was to provide Italy with corn. In order to convince the Romans of the sincerity of his intentions, Augustus betrothed M. Marcellus, the son of Octavia and stepson of Antony, who was present on this occasion, to a daughter of Pompeius. Peace seemed now to be restored everywhere. Antony returned to the East, where his gener
Balbi'nus was proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, but restored with Sex. Pompeius in B. C. 39, and subsequently advanced to the consulship. (Appian, 4.50.) No other author but Appian, and none of the Fasti, mention a consul of this name; but as we learn from Appian that Balbinus was consul in the year in which the conspiracy of the younger Aemilius Lepidus was detected by Maecenas, that is B. C. 30, it is conjectured that Balbinus may be the cognomen of L. Saenius, who was consul suffectus in that year.
of military tribune by Brutus, gained over the legion commanded by L. Piso, the lieutenant of Antonius, defeated and took prisoner C. Antonius, and did much good service in the course of the Macedonian campaign. When the republican army was broken up by the rout at Philippi, he joined Sext. Pompeius in Sicily, and taking advantage of the amnesty in favour of exiles, which formed one of the terms of the convention between that chief and the triumvirs when they concluded a short-lived peace (B. C. 39), returned to the metropolis. Here he lived in retirement and obscurity, until Octavianus, touched perhaps with remorse on account of his former treachery to the family, caused him to be admitted into the college of augurs, and after his final rupture with Antony, assumed him as his colleague in the consulship. (B. C. 30, from 13th Sept.) By a singular coincidence, the despatch announcing the capture of the fleet of Antony, which was immediately followed by his death, was addressed to the n

Orelli, Inscr. n. 589, id. vol. ii. p. 172; Westphal, Camp. Romagn. p. 84.) The Hirtius mentioned by Appian (App. BC 4.43, 84) as compelled by proscription to fly to Sex. Pompeius, may have been the same person, since many of the Pompeians were restored and even favoured by Augustus after the treaty at Misenum, in B. C. 39. HIRTIA, whom Cicero, after his repudiation of Terentia, in B. C. 46, had some thoughts of marrying, was a sister of Hirtius. He declined her, saying, that he could not undertake a wife and philosophy at once (Hieron. in Jovin. 1.38), and the words " Nihil vidi foedius " are supposed to refer to her. But, as he shortly afterwards, without apology, espoused the young, beautiful, and rich Publilia, it is probable that Hirtia wanted youth and a good dower, as well as good looks. The charac
