Cae'lius 4. P. Caelius, perhaps a son of the preceding, praetor with Verres, B. C. 74. (Cic. c. Verr. 1.50.)
s from the neighbouring cities for his ransom. Immediately he had obtained his liberty, he manned some Milesian vessels, overpowered the pirates, and conducted them as prisoners to Pergamus, where he shortly afterwards crucified them--a punishment he had frequently threatened them with in sport when he was their prisoner. He then repaired to Rhodes, where he studied under Apollonius for a short time, but soon afterwards crossed over into Asia, on the outbreak of the Mithridatic war again in B. C. 74. Here, although he held no public office, he collected troops on his own authority, and repulsed the commander of the king, and then returned to Rome in the same year, in consequence of having been elected pontiff, in his absence, in the place of his uncle C. Aurelius Cotta. On his return to Rome, Caesar used every means to increase his popularity. His affable manners, and still more his unbounded liberality, won the hearts of the people. As his private fortune was not large, he soon had
M. Caeso'nius one of the judices at Rome, an upright man, who displayed his integrity in the inquiry into the murder of Cluentius, B. C. 74, when C. Junius presided over the court. He was aedile elect with Cicero in B. C. 70, and consequently would not have been able to act as judex in the following year, as a magistrate was not allowed to discharge the duties of judex during his year of office. This was one reason among others why the friends of Verres were anxious to postpone his trial till B. C. 69. The praetorship of Caesonius is not mentioned, but he must have obtained it in the same year as Cicero, namely, B. C. 66, as Cicero writes to Atticus in 65, that there was some talk of Caesonius becoming a candidate with him for the consulship. (Cic. Verr. Act. 1.10 ; Pseudo-Ascon. in loc. ; Cic. Att. 1.1.) This Caesonius is probably the one whom Cicero speaks of in B. C. 45. (Ad Att. 12.11.)
Che'lidon the mistress of C. Verres, who is said by Cicero to have given all his decisions during his city praetorship (B. C. 74) in accordance with her wishes. She died two years afterwards, when Verres was propraetor in Sicily, leaving him her heir. She is called by the Pseudo-Asconius a plebeian female client of Verres. (Cic. Ver. 1.40, 52, 5.13, 15, 2.47, 4.32; Pseudo-Ascon. p. 193; Schol. Vatic. p. 376, ed. Orelli.)
ching his performances ready to condemn or to applaud. Full of the consciousness of this celebrity he landed at Puteoli (B. C. 74), and intense was his mortification when he discovered that even his own acquaintances among the luxurious crowd who thrll hours, however inconvenient or unseasonable. For upwards of four years after his return to Rome in the beginning of B. C. 74, the life of Cicero presents an entire blank. That he was actively engaged in the courts of law is certain, for he himsedo B. C. 7G. [ROSCIUS.] Pro Adolescentibus Siculis B. C. 75. (See Plut. Cic. 6.) ** Quum Quaestor Lilybaeo decederet B.

Clau'dia 9. CLODIA [Stemma, No. 43], the youngest sister of P. Clodius, was married to L. Licinius Lucullus, before his election to the consulship in B. C. 74. (Plut. Luc. 21, 34, 38; Varr. R. R. 3.16.1.) After his return from the Mithridatic war, Lucullus separated from her, on account of her infidelity, and in B. C. 61 brought her to trial for an incestuous amour with her brother P. Clodius. (Plut. Luc. 34, 38; Cic. pro Mil. 27, ad Fam. 1.9.)

A. Clue'ntius Ha'bitus 2. Son of the foregoing and his wife Sassia, was also a native of Larinum, born about B. C. 103. (Pro Cluent. 5.) In B. C. 74, being at Rome, he accused his own stepfather, Statius Albius Oppianicus, of having attempted to procure his death by poison. The cause was heard before a certain C. Junius during a period when a strong feeling prevailed with regard to the venality of the criminal judices, who were at that epoch selected from the senate exclusively. Shortly before the trial, a report was spread abroad, and gained general credit, that bribery had been extensively practised by those interested in the result. Accordingly, when a verdict of guilty was pronounced by a very small majority, including several individuals of notoriously bad character, when it became known that one of the concilium had been irregularly introduced, and had voted against the defendant without hearing the evidence, and when, above all, it was ascertained beyond a doubt that one of the

P. COMINIUS and L. COMINIUS or C. COMINIUS 5, 6. two brothers, who are described by Cicero as men of character and eloquence, accused Staienus, about B. C. 74. (Cic. Clu. 36.) In B. C. 66, these two brothers accused of majestas C. Cornelius, the tribune of the preceding year [C. CORNELIUS], but on the day appointed for the trial, the praetor, L. Cassius, did not appear, and the Cominii were driven away by a mob, and were eventually obliged to quit the city. They renewed the accusation in the following year, B. C. 65; Cornelius was defended by Cicero, who was then praetor, and acquitted. The speech which P. Cominius delivered on this occasion was extant in the time of Asconius, who says that it was worth reading, not only because of Cicero's speech, bat for its own merits. P. Cominius was a native of Spoletium. He died shortly before Cicero composed his "Brutus," namely B. C. 45, in which he calls Cominius his friend, and praises his wellarranged, lively, and clear style of speaking. (

Cotta, Aure'lius 10. M. Aurelius Cotta, a brother of No. 9, was consul in B. C. 74, together with L. Licinius Lucullus. In this year the war against Mithridates broke out again, and while the conduct of it was entrusted to Metellus, Cotta obtained Bithynia for his province, and a fleet to protect the Propontis. When Mithridates marched into Bithynia with his army, Cotta retreated to Chalcedon, in the port of which his fleet was stationed. In the neighbourhood of Chalcedon a battle was fought, in which Cotta was not only defeated and obliged to take refuge within the walls of Chalcedon, but lost his whole fleet of sixty-four sail. Mithridates, who had to direct his attention towards another quarter, left Cotta at Chalcedon. During this campaign Cotta dismissed his quaestor, P. Oppius, whom he suspected of being bribed by the enemy and plotting against him. On his return to Rome, therefore, Cotta brought an accusation against Oppius, who was defended by Cicero. Afterwards Cotta himself
