(48 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[English version] Von praeco (“Herold”) abgeleiteter Eigenname. Bekannt durch P., um 75 v. Chr. Geliebte des P. Cornelius [I 15] Cethegus; durch massive Geschenke an sie sicherte sich L.

Lucienus

(59 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[English version] Seltener ital. Familienname, bekannt durch den Senator Q.L., Freund des T. Pomponius Atticus. Varro läßt L., dem Rinderherden und vor allem große Gestüte in Epeiros gehörten, als Pferdekenner auftreten (Varro rust. 2,7,1-16); auch für seinen geistreich-komplizierten Humor war L. wohl berühmt (Varro rust. 2,5,1). Seine Erwähnung bei Cic. Att. 7,5,3 ist fraglich. Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)

General mit jahrzehntelanger Erfahrung, vielleicht Sohn eines primipilus (vgl. Plin. nat. 22,11) aus dem Volskergebiet [2. 316]. Seit ca. 93 war P. 30 Jahre lang tr. mil. oder praef. legionis (Sall. Catil. 59,6); etwa 64 wurde er Praetor (MRR 2, 161) und ging E. 63 als Legat zum Consul C. Antonius [I 2], für den er im Januar 62 Catilinas Heer bei Pistoria vernichtete (Sall. Catil. 59,4-60,5). 59 verließ P. aus Prote…

Mezetulus

(75 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[English version] Numiderfürst, der sich 206 v.Chr. gewaltsam zum Regenten der Massyli aufschwang. M. suchte Rückhalt bei Karthago und heiratete eine Nichte des Hannibal [4]. Ende 206 unterlag M. dem aus Spanien heimkehrenden Prätendenten Massinissa, seinem Verwandten, wurde aber begnadigt (Liv. 29,29,6-30,12). 202 erhob er sich - falls mit dem von Appian (App. Lib. 33,141) erwähnten Mesotylos identisch - und kämpfte für Hannibal; vermutlich fiel er bei Zama.

Lucullus

(72 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[English version] Röm. Beiname, sehr selten auch Familienname [1. 289]; wohl eine Verkleinerung des Vornamens Lucius [1. 177, 461]. Auch die Form Luciolus ist belegt [2. 128]. Die Kombination von Lucius und L. erscheint um 200 v.Chr. in der Familie der Licinier: Licinius [I 23-29] (der Feldherr mit sprichwörtlich luxuriösem Lebensstil [I 26]); der Beiname L. geht von dort durch Adoption auf M. Terentius Varro ( cos. 73) über [2. 39]. Fündling, Jörg (Bonn) Bibliography 1 Schulze 2 Kajanto, Cognomina.

Patiscus

(106 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[English version] Röm. Senator, der Panther in Cilicia fing und an Spielgeber in Rom weiterverkaufte ( munera ), z.B. 51/50 v.Chr. zehn Stück an C. Scribonius Curio (Cic. fam. 8,9,3), während M. Caelius [I 4] Rufus leer ausging (Cic. fam. 2,11,2). P. ist wohl der Q. Patisius, der 48/7 in Cilicia Truppen für den in Alexandreia [1] belagerten Caesar sammeln sollte (Bell. Alex. 34,5). Im März 44 war P. unter den Mördern Caesars (App. civ. 2,300); er führte im Sommer 43 als Proquaestor eine Flotte vor der Südküste Kleinasiens (MRR 2,348) und fand später wohl - wie alle Caesarmörder - den Tod. Fündl…

Mezetulus

(90 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Numidian prince, who in 206 BC rose violently to power as regent of the Massyli. M. sought support from Carthage, marrying a niece of Hannibal [4]. Late in 206, M. was defeated by the pretender Massinissa, his kinsman, on the latter's return from Spain, but his life was spared (Liv. 29,29,6-30,12). In 202, he - if he is to be identified with the Mesotylus mentioned by Appian (App. Lib. 33,141) - rebelled, and fought for Hannibal. He presumably fell at Zama. Punic Wars Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)

Lucienus

(65 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Rare Italian surname, known through the senator Q. L., friend of T. Pomponius Atticus. Varro depicts L., who owned herds of cattle and above all large stud farms in Epirus, as a horse expert (Varro, Rust. 2,7,1-16); L. was also famous for his witty and complicated humour (Varro, Rust. 2,5,1). His mention in Cic. Att. 7,5,3 is doubtful. Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)

Titurius

(136 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Italian nomen gentile, recorded primarily in inscriptions (cf. [1. 274 f.]; AE 1986,262; 1996,532). The only prominent member was Q. T. Sabinus, son of a mint-master c. 88 BC (MRR 2,454), who served Cn. Pompeius [I 3] in Spain (Sall. Hist. 2,94 M.) and was a legate of Caesar in Gaul. In 57 BC, T. fought the Belgae, in 56 the Veneti and with great success the Venelli under Viridovix (Caes. B Gall. 3,17,1-19,6), and in 55, with five legions in Caesar's absence, the Morini and the Menapii. The disaster in …

Mamurra

(173 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Unusual Italic personal name, known through M., a Roman equestrian from Formiae (Catull. 43,5 etc.; Hor. Sat. 1,5,37), who was an associate of Pompey in c. 66 BC, was in Spain with Caesar in 61, and served as the latter's praefectus fabrum in Gaul from 58 (Catull. 29,18-24). Around 55/4, M. was periodically at Rome, where his luxurious house caused a furore (Plin. HN 36,48). His rival in eroticis, Catullus [1], depicts him as a scandalous war profiteer and a philanderer (Catull. 41) (allegedly in cahoots with Caesar, Catull. 57). Caesar's associat…

Staius

(235 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
Oscan nomen gentile, documented on Delos since the late 3rd cent. BC [1. 186 f.]. [German version] [1] S. Murcus, L. Possibly a Marsus (but not the S. mentioned in ILS 885), legate of Caesar in the Civil War in Oricum in 48 BC (Caes. B Civ. 3,15,6; 3,16,2), in Africa in 46 (Cic. Att. 12,2,1). A praetorship in 45 is speculation (MRR 2,307). In 44 S. took the side of  Caesar's assassins, became pro-consul of Syria (MRR 2,330) and thanks to Q. Marcius [I 10] Crispus surrounded his opponent Q. Caecilius [I 5] Bassus i…

Petreius

Rare Italian nomen gentile [1. 306]. [German version] [1] P., M. Roman general, then Praetor in around 64 BC In c. 110-46 BC a Roman general with many decades of experience, perhaps the son of a primipilus (cf. Plin. HN 22,11) from the Volscan area [2. 316]. From c. 93 onwards, P. was tr. mil. or praef. legionis (Sall. Catil. 59,6) for 30 years; in about 64 he became praetor (MRR 2, 161) and at the end of 63 he went as legate to the consul C. Antonius [I 2] for whom he destroyed Catilina's army at Pistoria in January 62 (Sall. Catil. 59,4-60,5). In …

Theomnastus

(96 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] (Θεόμναστος; Theómnastos). Prominent citizen of Syracuse, an adherent 73-71 BC of C. Verres, for whom he had honorary decrees declared and taxes collected (Cic. Verr. 2,2,50 f.; 2,3,101); in thanks T. became (by cheating in the drawing of lots: 2,2,126 f.) a priest of Zeus in Syracuse and was allowed to enrich himself in the purple trade (2,4,59). In 70 BC, after a short-lived resistance against investigations by Cicero, who presents T. as mad, T. lost nerve and handed over to him a list of valuable objects in Verres' possession (2,4,148 f.). Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)

Masintha

(121 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Young noble Numidian, who fled to Rome to escape the demands for tribute exacted by King Hiempsal [2] II. Caesar represented him in court against Hiempsal's son Juba [1], later hid him and in 61 BC took him to Spain with him. His motives were probably assumed to be of a sexual nature. (Suet. Iul. 71). According to an interpretation of Vitr. De arch. 8,3,25 [1. 31-33], M. owned the territory around Ismuc, not far from Zama, and in 46 he and his son C. Iulius fought on Caesar's side against Juba. Fündling, Jörg (Bonn) Bibliography 1 K. Jeppesen, Vitruvius in Africa, in: H. Geertman, …

Racilius

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Italic nomen gentile. Known from L. R., aide of C. Verres in Sicily in 73-71 BC (Cic. Verr. 2,2,31). In 56 a people's tribune of the same name (his son?) acted in the interests of the  Senate against P. Clodius [I 4] (Cic. Fam. 1,7,2; Cic. Ad Q. Fr. 2,1,2; Cic. Planc. 77 with scholia Bobiensia 165 f. Stangl); probably the same R. conspired against Q. Cassius [I 16] Longinus in Spain in 48 and was executed (Bell. Alex. 53,3; 55,2). Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)

Praecia

(49 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Proper name derived from praeco ('herald'). Known because of P., the mistress of P. Cornelius [I 15] Cethegus c. 75 BC. By giving her impressive gifts L. Licinius [I 26] Lucullus secured Cethegus’ support and with it the province of Cilicia (Plut. Lucullus 6,2-4). Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)

(345 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] [1] Brother of T. [2], 1st cent. BC Brother of T. [2], senator, excluded from the Senate and exiled by Caesar; an appeal for clemency on his behalf was the signal for the murder of the dictator (Nicolaus of Damascus, Vita Caesaris 24,88; Plut. Caesar 66,5; Plut. Brutus 17,3 f.; App. B Civ. 2,490-493). According to Horatius (Sat. 1,6,24 f.; 107-111), T. returned shortly thereafter and became senator again (as people's tribune in 43?). His supposed hopes on becoming praetor were not fulfilled (death at Philippi in 42?). Fündling, Jörg (Bonn) [German version] [2] T. Cimber…

Lucullus

(85 words)

Author(s): Fündling, Jörg (Bonn)
[German version] Roman cognomen, very rarely also a surname [1. 289]. Probably a diminutive of the forename Lucius [1. 177, 461]. The form Luciolus is also attested [2. 128]. The combination of Lucius and L. appears in about 200 BC in the family of the Licinians: Licinius [I 23-29] (the commander with a proverbially luxurious lifestyle [I 26]). The epithet L. then passes from there by adoption to M. Terentius Varro ( cos. 73) [2. 39]. Fündling, Jörg (Bonn) Bibliography 1 Schulze 2 Kajanto, Cognomina.
