A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), or Tigranes Asiaticus (search)
ibis in Mesopotamia, which was held by Guras, the brother of Tigranes, his subsequent movements were completely paralysed by the disobedience of his own soldiers. The two kings took advantage of this respite, and while Mithridates sought to recover his own dominions, Tigranes regained great part of Armenia, and defeated the Roman lieutenant L. Fannius, whose army was only saved by the arrival of Lucullus himself to his relief (D. C. 35.4-8; Plut. Lucull. 31-34). In the following year, also (B. C. 67), he was able to pour his troops into the provinces of Armenia Minor and Cappadocia without opposition, and Lucullus was unable to punish his audacity. (D. C. 35.14-15.) The arrival of Pompey (B. C. 66) soon changed the face of events, and Mithridates, after repeated defeats, was again compelled to seek a refuge in Armenia. Meanwhile, a new enemy had arisen to the Armenian king in his own son Tigranes, who, having engaged in a conspiracy against the life of his father, and finding himself

Torqua'tus, Ma'nlius 16. Manlius Torquatus, the legatus of Pompey in the war against the pirates in B. C. 67 (Appian, Mithr. 95), was probably the same as one of the preceding persons, but we have no means of determining which.
Trebe'llius 4. L. Trebellius, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 67, joined his colleague, L. Roscius Otho, in opposing the rogation of Gabinius for conferring upon Pompeius the command of the war against the pirates. Trebellius had promised the senate that he would die before he allowed the proposition to pass into a law; and as neither threats nor entreaties induced him to withdraw his veto, Gabinius proposed to the tribes to deprive him of his office. Seventeen out of thirty-five tribes had already voted for his degradation, when Trebellius was gave way. (Ascon. in Cornel. p. 71, ed. Orelli ; D. C. 36.7, 13; comp. OTHO, p. 65. a.)
Tu'llia frequently called by the diminutive TULLIOLA, was the daughter of M. Cicero and Terentia. The year of her birth is not mentioned, but it was probably in B. C. 79 or 78. [TERENTIA, No. 1.] Her birthday was on the 5th of Sextilis or August. She was betrothed as early as B. C. 67 to C. Calpurnius Piso Frugi, whom she married in B. C. 63 during the consulship of her father. At the time of Cicero's exile (B. C. 58). Tullia displayed a warm interest in his fate. She and her husband threw themselves at the feet of the consul Piso to implore his pity on behalf of their father. During Cicero's banishment Tullia lost her first husband : he was alive at the end of B. C. 58, but she was a widow when she welcomed her father at Brundsium on his return from exile, in August of the following year. She was married again in B. C. 56 to Furius Crassipes, a young man of rank and large property; but she did not live with him long, though the time and the reason of her divorce are alike unknown. [C
