Lae'lius De'cimus 1. Was one of Cn. Pompey's lieutenants in the Sertorian war. He was slain in an engagement near the town of Lauro, B. C. 76, by Hirtuleius, a legatus of Sertorius. (Sallust. Schol. Bob. pro Flacc. p. 23.5, Orelli; Frontin. Strat. 2.5.31; Obseq. de Prod. 119.) [HIRTULEIUS.] Lucilius, the satirist, as cited by Cicero (De Or. 2.6), and Cicero himself (lb.) speaks with some contempt of Laelius's pretensions to literature.
