Flamini'nus

8. T. Quintius Flamininus was consul in B. C. 123, with Q. Metellus Balearicus. Cicero, who had seen and heard him in his early youth, says that he spoke Latin with elegance, but that he was an illiterate man. In his consulship Carthage became a Roman colony; though Livy and Plutarch place this restoration of Carthage in the year following, that is, in the second tribuneship of C. Gracchus. (Cic. Brut. 28, 74, pro Dom. 53 ; Eutrop. 4.20; Oros. 5.12.)
