Periochae Librorum XXXVII–XL

From Oxyrhynchus

Book XXXVII

In Spain the Romans were slaughtered.1 In the consulship of Marcus Fulvius and Gnaeus Manlius, the b.c. 189 Aetolians were for the second time neither granted nor refused peace. Publius Licinius the chief pontiff prevented Praetor Quintus Fabius from setting out for Sardinia, because he was flamen of Quirinus. Peace was granted to King Antiochus. The Lusitanians were ravaged. The colony of Bononia was founded in accordance with a decree of the senate. Acilius Glabrio on seeking the censorship was threatened with prosecution by his rivals and abandoned his undertaking.

Book XXXVIII

Ambracia was occupied. The Galatians in Pamphylia were crushed in battle and Phrygia was set free. Origiaco’s wife,2 a prisoner of high rank, killed a centurion

  • 1The summary begins with xlvi. 7–8. The peace with Antiochus and the founding of Bononia are the only items duplicated in the other Summary.
  • 2The translation follows the complete text (where the Galatian king’s name is written Orgiago, genitive, Orgiagontis), rather than the unsatisfactory wording of this Summary; see critical note.
