ot able to effect anything against Caesar and Pompey. He did not go to a province at the expiration of his consulship; and as the friendship between Caesar and Pompey cooled, he became closely allied with the latter. In B. C. 52, he was chosen by Pompey to preside, as quaesitor, in the court for the trial of Clodius. For the next two or three years during Cicero's absence in Cilicia, our information about Ahenobarbus is principally derived from the letters of his enemy Coelius to Cicero. In B. C. 50 he was a candidate for the place in the college of augurs, vacant by the death of Hortensius, but was defeated by Antony through the influence of Caesar. The senate appointed him to succeed Caesar in the province of further Gaul, and on the march of the latter into Italy (49), he was the only one of the aristocratical party who shewed any energy or courage. He threw himself into Corfinium with about twenty cohorts, expecting to be supported by Pompey; but as the latter did nothing to assi
Amia'nus whom Cicero mentions in a letter to Atticus (6.1.13), written B. C. 50, was probably a debtor of Atticus in Cilicia.
M. Anneius legate of M. Cicero during his government in Cilicia, B. C. 51. Anneius appears to have had some pecuniary dealings with the inhabitants of Sardis, and Cicero gave him a letter of introduction to the praetor Thermus, that the latter might assist him in the matter. In Cicero's campaign against the Parthians in B. C. 50, Anneius commanded part of the Roman troops. (Cic. Fam. 13.55, 57, 15.4.)
Anti'stius 7. T. Antistius, quaestor in Macedonia, B. C. 50. When Pompey came into the province in the following year, Antistius had received no successor; and according to Cicero, he did only as much for Pompey as circumstances compelled him. He took no part in the war, and after the battle of Pharsalia went to Bithynia, where he saw Caesar and was pardoned by him. He died at Corcyra on his return, leaving behind him considerable property. (Cic. Fam. 13.29.)

nd the Romans, in B. C. 53. [CRASSUS.] The death of Crassus and the destruction of the Roman army spread universal alarm through the eastern provinces of the Roman empire. Orodes, becoming jealous of Surenas, put him to death, and gave the command of the army to his son Pacorus, who was then still a youth. The Parthians, after obtaining possession of all the country east of the Euphrates, entered Syria, in B. C. 51, with a small force, but were driven back by Cassius. In the following year (B. C. 50) they again crossed the Euphrates with a much larger army, which was placed nominally under the command of Pacorus, but in reality under that of Osaces, an experienced general. They advanced as far as Antioch, but unable to take this city arched against Antigoneia, near which they were defeated by Cassius. Osaces was killed in the battle, and Pacorus thereupon withdrew from Syria. (D. C. 40.28, 29; Cic. Att. 5.18, 21, ad Fam. 15.1.) Bibulus, who succeeded Cassius in the command in the same
Bi'bulus 2. 3. CALPURNII BIBULI, two sons of the preceding, whose praenomens are unknown, were murdered in Egypt, B. C. 50, by the soldiers of Gabinius. Their father bore his loss with fortitude though he deeply felt it; and when the murderers of his children were subsequently delivered up to him by Cleopatra, he sent them back, saying that their punishment was not his duty but that of the senate. Bibulus had probably sent his sons into Egypt to solicit aid against the Parthians; and they may have been murdered by the soldiers of Gabinius, because it was known that their father had been opposed to the expedition of Gabinius, which had been undertaken at the instigation of Pompey. (Caes. Civ. 3.110; V. Max. 4.1.15; comp. Cic. ad Att. vi. 5, ad Fam. 2.17.)
e Roman yoke. Having thus completed the pacification of Gaul, Caesar found that he could leave his army in the spring of B. C. 50, and therefore, contrary to his usual practice, repaired at the end of the winter to Cisalpine Gaul. While Caesar had for the consulship in his absence. At length a decree of the senate was passed, that the consuls of the succeeding year, B. C. 50, should on the first of March consult the senate respecting the disposal of the consular provinces, by which time it was hoped that Pompey would be prepared to take decisive measures against Caesar. The consuls for the next year, B. C. 50, L. Aemilius Paullus and C. Claudius Marcellus, and the powerful tribune C. Curio, were all reckoned devoted partizans of Pompey antly interposed his veto upon the proposition of Marcellus. Meantime Caesar had come into Cisalpine Gaul in the spring of B. C. 50, as already mentioned. Here he was received by the municipal towns and colonies with the greatest marks of respect and a
Cae'sius 3. L. Caesius, was one of Cicero's friends, and accompanied him during his proconsular administration of Cilicia, in B. C. 50. (Ad Quint. Frat. 1.1.4, 2.2.) He seems to be the same person as the Caesius who superintended the building of Q. Cicero's villa of the Manilianum. (Ad Quint. Frat. 3.1. ยงยง 1, 2.) There is a Roman denarius bearing the name L. Caesius (see above), but whether it belongs to our L. Caesius or not cannot be ascertaine
Caldus 2. C. Caelius Caldus, a son of L. Caelius Caldus, and a grandson of No. 1, was appointed quaestor in B. C. 50, in Cilicia, which was then under the administration of Cicero. When Cicero departed from the province, he left the administration in the hands of Caldus, although he was not fit for such a post either by his age or his character. Among the letters of Cicero, there is one (ad Fam. 2.19) addressed to Caldus at the time when he was quaestor designates. (Cic. Fam. 2.15, ad Att. 6.2, 4-6, 7.1.)
Ca'sticus the son of Catamantaledes, a Sequanan, seized the government in his own state, which his father had held before him, at the instigation of Orgetorix, about B. C. 50. (Caes. Gal. 1.3.)
