mounting in all to 44 hexameters, may be held as specimens. 4. * Alcyones. Capitolinus (Gordian. 3) mentions a poem under this name ascribed to Cicero, of which nearly two lines are quoted by Nonius. (s. v. Praevius.) 5. Uxorius. (See Capitolin. l.c.) 6. Nilus. (See Capitolin. l.c.) 7. * Limon. Four hexameter lines in praise of Terence from this poem, the general subject of which is unknown, are quoted by Suetonius. (Vit. Terent. 5.) 8. ** Marius. Written before the year B. C. 82. (De Leg. 1.1; Vell. 2.26.) A spirited fragment of thirteen hexameter lines, describing a prodigy witnessed by Marius and interpreted by him as an omen of success, is'quoted in de Divinatione (1.47), a single line in the de Legibus (1.1), and another by Isidorus. (Orig. 19.1.) 9. * De Rebus in Consulatu gestis. Cicero wrote a history of his own consulship, first in Greek prose, which he finished before the month of June, B. C. 60 (ad Att. 2.1), and soon afterwards a Latin poem on the sa<
Corne'lia 3. Sister of the preceding, was married to Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus, who was proscribed by Sulla in B. C. 82, and killed in Africa, whither he had fled. [AHENOBARBUS, No. 6.] Family of the Scipiones.
Corne'lius 2. Cornelius Phagita, the commander of a company of soldiers, into whose hands Caesar fell when he was proscribed by Sulla in B. C. 82. It was with difficulty that Cornelius allowed him to escape even after receiving a bribe of two talents, but Caesar never punished him when he afterwards obtained supreme power. (Suet. Jul. 74; Plut. Caes. 1.

in B. C. 124, and was the son of Rutilia,. He was a friend of the tribune M. Livius Drusus, who was murdered in B. C. 91; and in the same year he sued for the tribuneship, but was rejected, and a few months afterwards went into voluntary exile to avoid being condemned by the lex Varia, which ordained that an inquiry should be made as to who had either publicly or privately supported the claims of the Italian allies in their demand of the franchise. Cotta did not return to Rome till the year B. C. 82, when Sulla was dictator, and in 75 he obtained the consulship, together with L. Octavius. In that year he excited the hostility of the optimates by a law by which he endeavoured to raise the tribuneship from the condition into which it had been thiown by Sulla. The exact nature of this law, however, is not certain. (Cic. Fragm. Cornel. p. 80 ed. Orelli, with the note of Ascon. ; Sallust, Hist. Fragm. p. 210, ed. Gerlach.) A lex de judiciis privatis of Cotta is likewise mentioned by Cicero,
Cu'rio 3. C. Scribonius Curio, a son of the former. In B. C. 100, when the seditious tribune L. Appuleius Saturninus was murdered, Curio was with the consuls. In B. C. 90, the year in which the Marsic war broke out, Curio was tribune of the people. He afterwards served in the army of Sulla during his war in Greece against Archelaus, the general of Mithridates, and when the city of Athens was taken, Curio besieged the tyrant Aristion in the acropolis. In B. C. 82 he was invested with the praetorship, and in 76 he was made consul together with Cn. Octavius. After the expiration of the consulship, he obtained Macedonia as his province, and carried on a war for three years in the north of his province against the Dardanians and Moesians with great success. He was the first Roman general who advanced in those regions as far as the river Danube, and on his return to Rome in 71, he celebrated a triumph over the Dardanians. Curio appears to have henceforth remained at Rome, where he took an
Fi'mbria 3. Flavius Fimbria, a brother of No. 2, was legate of C. Norbanus, in the war against Sulla, B. C. 82. He and other officers of the party of Carbo were invited to a banquet by Albinovanus, and then treacherously murdered. (Appian, App. BC 1.91.) [L.S]

M'. Acilius Glabrio M. F. M. N. GLABRIO, son of the preceding and of Mucia, a daaghter of P. Mucius Scaevola, consul in B. C. 133. He married a daughter of M. Aemilius Scaurus, consul in B. C. 115 (Cic. in Verr. 1.17), whom Sulla, in B. C. 82, compelled him to divorce. (Plut. Sull. 33, Pomp. 9.) Glabrio was praetor urbanus in B. C. 70, when he presided at the impeachment of Verres. (Cic. in Verr. 1.2.) Cicero was anxious to bring on the trial of Verres during the praetorship of Glabrio (Ib. 18; Pseudo-Ascon. in Verr. argum. p. 125, Orelli), whose conduct in the preliminaries and the presidency of the judicium he commends (in Verr. Act. 2.5.29, 63), and describes him as active in his judicial functions and careful of his reputation (in Verr. 1.10, 14), although, in a later work (Brut. 68), he says that Glabrio's natural indolence marred the good education he had received from his grandfather Scaevola. Glabrio was consul with C. Calpurnius Piso in B. C. 67, and in the following year pr
Ju'lia 1. A daughter of C. Julius Caesar [CAESAR, No. 14] and Marcia, and aunt of Caesar the dictator. She married C. Marius the elder, by whom she had one son, C. Marius, slain at Praeneste in B. C. 82. Julia died B. C. 68, and her nephew, C. Julius Caesar, pronounced her funeral oration, in which he traced her descent through the Marcii to Ancus, the fourth king of Rome, and through the Julii to Anchises and Venus. At the funeral of Julia were exhibited, for the first time since Sulla's dictatorship in B. C. 81, the statues and inscriptive titles of the elder Marius. (Plut. Mar. 6, Caes. 1, 5; Suet. Jul. 6.)
Ju'lia 5. Daughter of Caesar the dictator, by Cornelia [CORNELIA, 2], and his only child in marriage (Tac. Ann. 3.6). She was born B. C. 83-82, and was betrothed to Servilius Caepio [CAEPIO, No. 14], but married Cn. Pompey, B. C. 59. This family-alliance of its two great chiefs was regarded as the firmest bond of the so-called first triumvirate, and was accordingly viewed with much alarm by the oligarchal party in Rome, especially by Cicero and Cato (Cic. Att. 2.17, 8.3; Plut. Caes. 14, Pomp. 48, Cat. Min. 31; App. BC 2.14; Suet. Jul. 50; D. C. 38.9; Gel. 4.10.5; comp. August. Civ. Dei. 3.13). The personal charms of Julia were remarkable; her talents and virtues equalled her beauty; and although policy prompted her union, and she was twentythree years younger than her husband, she possessed in Pompey a devoted husband, to whom she was, in return, devotedly attached. (Plut. Pomp. 48, 53.) It was not the least fortunate circumstance in Julia's life that she died before a breach between

Ligur, M. Octa'vius 1. a Roman senator. During the praetorship of C. Sacerdos he had become possessed of an estate in Sicily by the will of one C. Sulpicius Olympus. When Verres became praetor, in accordance with one of his edicts the daughter of the patronus of Sulpicius sued Ligur for a sixth part of the estate. Ligur found himself compelled to come to Rome to assert and defend his rights. Verres afterwards demanded money from Ligur for trying the cause. M. Ligur and his brother are set down as tribunes of the plebs in the same year (B. C. 82) by Pighius (vol. iii. p. 266). (Cic. in Verr. 1.48, 2.7, 48.)
