Sabiinus, Calvi'sius 1. C. Calvisius Sabinus, one of the legates of Caesar in the civil war, was sent by him into Aetolia in B. C. 48, and obtained possession of the whole of the country. (Caes. Civ. 3.34, 35.) It is related by Appian (App. BC 2.60) that he was defeated by Metellus Scipio in Macedonia, but this statement is hardly consistent with Caesar's account. In B. C. 45 he received the province of Africa from Caesar. Having been elected praetor in B. C. 44, he obtained from Antony the province of Africa again. It was pretended that the lot had assigned him this province; on which Cicero remarks that nothing could be more lucky, seeing that he had just come from Africa, leaving two legates behind him in Utica, as if he had divined that he should soon return. He did not, however, return to Africa, as the senate, after the departure of Antony for Mutina, conferred it upon Q. Cornificius (Cic. Phil. 3.10, ad Fam. 12.25). Sabinus was consul B. C. 39 with L. Marcius Censorinus, and in
M. SACRATIVIR of Capua, a Roman eques, who fell fighting on Caesar's side at the battle of Dyrrhachium, B. C. 48. (Caes. Civ. 3.71.)
Sadales the son of Cotys, king of Thrace, was sent by his father to the assistance of Pompey, and fought on his side against Caesar, in B. C. 48. In conjunction with Scipio, he defeated L. Cassius Longinus, one of Caesar's legates. He was pardoned by Caesar after the battle of Pharsalia, and appears to have succeeded his father in the sovereignty about this time. He died in B. C. 42, leaving his dominions to the Romans (Caes. Civ. 3.4; Lucan, 5.54; D. C. 41.51, 63, 47.25). Cicero, in his orations against Verres, B. C. 70, speaks of a king Sadala (Verr. Act. 1.24). This Sadala was in all probability the father of Cotys, and the grandfather of the Sadales mentioned above.
Septi'mius 8. L. Septimius, had served as a centurion under Cn. Pompey, in the war against the pirates, and afterwards under Gabinius, when he restored Ptolemy Auletes to the throne. Gabinius left him behind in Egypt with a considerable force, to protect the king, and he was still in the country, with the rank of tribunus militum, when Pompey fled there after the battle of Pharsalia, in B. C. 48. In conjunction with Achillas, he slew his old commander, as he was landing in Egypt. Appian erroneously calls him Sempronius. (D. C. 42.3, 4. 38; Caes. Civ. 3.104; Plut. Pomp. 78 ; Appian, App. BC 2.84.)
ge of Cicero, in which he speaks (ad Fam. 5.20.5) of Sestius having taken some money which L. Mescinius Rufus, Cicero's quaestor in Cilicia, had deposited in a temple, that Sestius afterwards obtained the province of Cilicia as propraetor. On the breaking out of the civil war in B. C. 49, Sestius was with Pompey in Italy, and wrote Pompey's reply to the propositions of Caesar, at which Cicero expresses great vexation on account of the miserable style in which Sestius was accustomed to write, and declares that he never read any thing shstiwde/steron than the document which went forth in Pompey's name (Cic. Att. 7.17, comp. ad Fam. 7.32, " omnia omnium dicta, in his etiam Sestiana, in me conferri ais "). He subsequently deserted the Pompeian party and joined Caesar, who sent him, in B. C. 48, into Cappadocia, where it appears that he remained some time. He was alive in B. C. 43, as appears from Cicero's correspondence. (Hirt. B. Alex. 34 ; Cic. Att. 13.2, 7, 15.17, 27 16.4,ad Fam. 13.8.)
Se'xtius 9. Q. Sextius, one of the conspirators against Q. Cassius Longinus, quaestor of Further Spain, in B. C. 48. On the suppression of the conspiracy, he purchased his life from Longinus, by giving him a sum of money (Hirt. B. Alex. 55). He is called M. Silius by Valerius Maximus (9.4.2).

Squillus, L. Lici'nius one of the conspirators against Q. Cassius Longinus in Spain, B. C. 48. [LONGINUS, No. 15.]
L. Stabe'rius the governor of Apollonia for the Pompeians in B. C. 48, was obliged to desert the town on the approach of Caesar, in consequence of the inhabitants declaring in favour of the latter (Caes. Civ. 3.12; Appian, App. BC 2.54).
from the embarrassment of his advocate. According to A. Gellius ( 12.12) Cicero had borrowed a sum of money from Sulla for the purchase of his house on the Palatine. Cicero afterwards quarrelled with Sulla, because the latter had taken part in the proceedings of Clodius against him during his banishment. (Cic. Att. 4.3.) In the civil war Sulla espoused Caesar's cause. He served under him as legate in Greece, and commanded along with Caesar himself the right wing at the battle of Pharsalia, B. C. 48. In the following year he was ordered by Caesar to carry over from Italy to Sicily the legions which were destined for the African war; but the soldiers of the twelfth legion rose in mutiny, and drove him away with a shower of stones, demanding to receive, before they quitted Italy, the rewards which they had been promised in Greece. At the conclusion of the civil war Sulla purchased at a small sum some of the confiscated estates of the Pompeian party, and appears in consequence to have inc

Sulpi'cius Rufus 3. P. Sulpicius Rufus, probably a son or grandson of No. 2, was one of Caesar's legates in Gaul. He also served under Caesar as one of his legates in the campaign in Spain against Afranius and Petreius, in B. C. 49; and in the following year, B. C. 48, he was rewarded for his services by the praetorship. In the latter year he commanded Caesar's fleet at Vibo, when it was attacked by C. Cassius. Cicero addresses him in B. C. 45 as imperator. It appears that he was at that time in Illyricum, along with Vatinius. (Caes. Gal. 4.22, B. C. 1.74, 3.101; Cic. Fam. 13.77.)
