a Plot against him--Mutiny in the Army--Mithridates takes Poison, but without Effect--Is killed at his Own Request--Character and Career of Mithridates--He is buried at Sinope Y.R. 690 Pompey then passed over Mount Taurus and made B.C. 64 war against Antiochus, the king of Commagene, until the latter entered into friendly relations with him. He also fought against Darius the Mede, and put him to flight, either because he had helped Antiochus, or Tigranes before him. He made war agaith harshness to many, without his knowledge, for he had fallen sick with ulcers on his face and allowed himself to be seen only by three eunuchs, who cured him. Y.R. 690 When he had recovered from his illness and his army B.C. 64 was collected (it consisted of sixty picked cohorts of 6000 men each and a great multitude of other troops, besides ships and strongholds that had been captured by his generals while he was sick) he sent a part of it across the strait to Phanagoria
Appian, The Civil Wars (ed. Horace White), BOOK II, CHAPTER I (search)
mmotions of a similar nature took place among the Romans until Gaius Cæsar and Pompey the Great waged war against each other, and Cæsar made an end of Pompey and was himself killed in the senate-chamber because he was accused of exercising royal power. How these things came about and how both Pompey and Cæsar lost their lives, this second book of the Civil Wars will show. Pompey had Y.R. 690 lately cleared the sea of pirates, who were then more numerous B.C. 64 than ever before, and afterward had overthrown Mithridates, king of Pontus, and regulated his kingdom and the other nations that he had subdued in the East. Cæsar was still a young man, but powerful in speech and action, daring in every way, ambitious of everything, and profuse beyond his means in the pursuit of honors. While yet ædile and prætor he had incurred great debts and had made himself wonderfully agreeable to the multitude, who always sing th<

C., and constituted the Roman people his heir. the kings of the Syrians,We may here observe that the Seleucidæ ceased to reign in Syria as early as 83 B. C., when that country, wearied of their sad dissensions, willingly submitted to Tigranes the king of Armenia, but their race was not extinct, and even in the year 64 B. C. when Pompey made the kingdom a Roman province, there were two princes of the Seleucidæ, Antiochus Asiaticus and his brother Seleucus-Cybiosactes, who had an hereditary right to the throne; the latter however died about 54 B. C., and in him terminated the race of the Seleucidæ. the Paphlagonians,The race of the kings of Paphlagonia became extinct about 7 B. C. See M. l' Abbé Belley, Diss. sur l' ère de Germanicopolis, &c.

Sulpicia, Carmina Omnia (ed. Anne Mahoney), section 1 (search)
was her uncle Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus, who proposed the measure giving Augustus the title pater patriae in 2 BC (see Suet. Aug. 58). Messalla had fought on the side of Brutus and Cassius at the start of the civil war, but ultimately joined Octavian's side. He was consul in 31 along with Octavian. Messalla is best known now, however, as the patron of a group of writers including Tibullus and the other poets of the Corpus Tibullianum, one of whom was Sulpicia. Messalla lived from 64 BC to AD 8. We know little about Sulpicia's own life. It is clear from poem 2 that Messalla has patris potestas over her; we can conjecture, then, that she is not yet married and that her father is dead. She may have been roughly the same age as Tibullus and Propertius (both born in the late 50s or early 40s), or perhaps a couple of years younger. We do not know who Cerinthus was, or even whether Sulpicia used a pseudonym for her lover, as male love poets conventionally did. The Sulpicia

The sister of Lucius Caesar (the younger) was married to Lentulus, and his mother, Fulvia, was daughter of M. Fulvius Flaccus, the leading adherent of C. Gracchus. When Gracchus and Flaccus found themselves (B.C. 121) drawn into a collision with the Senate, they sent the young son of Flaccus

or a possible reference to this, see Varro, LL vi. 33), and also the statues from Ambracia of the nine Muses by an unknown artist, and that of Hercules playing the lyre (Plin. NH xxxv. 66; Ov. Fast. vi. 812; cf. Ars Am. iii. 168); and a bronze shrine of the Muses that was attributed to the time of Numa and had been in the temple of Honos et Virtus until this was built (Serv. Aen. i. 8). The statue of Hercules and those of the nine Muses are represented on denarii of Q. Pomponius Musa, about 64 B.C. (Babelon ii. 361; Cohen, Med. Cons. 266, pl. 34, 4; BM. Rep. i. 441, 3602-3632). In 29 B.C. L. Marcius Philippus restored this temple and built a porticus, the PORTICUS PHILIPPI (q.v.) around it (Suet. Aug. 29). The day of dedication was 30th June (Ov. Fast. vi. 797; Mart. iv. 49. 13). This temple is mentioned in Not. (Reg. IX, om. Cur.), and its site is ascertained from a fragment (33) of the Marble Plan. It was in circo Flaminio (Eum. loc. cit.), that is, close to the south-west part of t

ical value of this letter springs from the fact that it fixes the date of the birth of Cicero's son (65 B.C.), that it contains the main point in the evidence with reference to Cicero's defense of Catiline against the charge of misappropriation of public money, and accounts for the absence of letters between Cicero and Atticus from 64-62 B.C. inclusive (cf. last sentence). L. Iulio Caesare C. Marcio Figulo consulibus: the natural meaning would be, in the consulship of, etc., and would make 64 B.C. the date of this letter, but the reference to the approaching trial of Catiline proves that it must have been written in 65 B.C., after the election of the new consuls, as the trial was begun and finished in that year. The brevity and apparent lack of feeling in Cicero's announcement to his most intimate friend of the birth of his son has called forth severe criticisms from his enemies, and apologies from his friends (cf. Abeken, pp.33, 34) — quite without reason. Both parties have failed t

S. t. e. q. v. b. e.: for si tu exercitusque valetis, bene est; a stereotyped form of salutation which Cicero uses only in official or formal letters, or in replying to some one who has employed it in writing to him.
