Umbrenus
(71 words)

Italic nomen gentile derived from the Umbri people (Schulze, 257; 523).

[German version]

[1] U., P.

Freed slave whose former business activities had made him familiar with Gaul, and because of this in 63 BC he was supposed to win the Allobroges over to Catilina (Cic. Catil. 3,14; Sall. Catil. 40). When the Senate resolved he should be executed he took to flight (Sall. Catil. 50,4).
