Author(s): Leppin, Hartmut (Hannover) | Bloch, René (Berne)
[German version] [1] Defended Marseille against Athaulf 413 AD B. distinguished himself in AD 413 in the defence of Marseilles against Athaulf ( Ataulfus), attested as tribune in Africa from AD 416/17, perhaps praepositus limitis; from AD 423 comes Africae. As he acted independently, he was suspected time and again of disloyalty to  Valentinianus III, and this led to military conflicts in 427-429; publicly confirmed by the emperor as comes in 429. At the same time B. was accused of having invited the Vandals into the country so as to defend his own position; he …

Caecilianus

(269 words)

Author(s): Bloch, René (Berne) | Leppin, Hartmut (Hannover)
[German version] [1] Bishop of Carthage, from AD 311/12 In 311/312 (according to [1] around 309/310), C. was ordained bishop of Carthage by Felix of Apthugni. A council of 70 bishops under the leadership of the Numidian primate Secundus of Tigisi declared C.'s election invalid and accused Felix of traditio. In his place, Maiorinus was elected at first, with (313)  Donatus following shortly afterwards. Emperor Constantine declared his support for C. (cf. especially Constantine's letter in Euseb. Hist. eccl. 10,5,15-17; 10,6f.). The dispute with…

As a member of the Constaninian dynasty, he rose up in Rome against Magnentius. He defeated the army of the latter's praef. praet., Anicius (or Anicetus), in Italy and claimed to be the ruler for a while (June 350), until Magnentius's magister officiorum, Marcellinus [5], defeated him.

Eutropius

(731 words)

Author(s): Portmann, Werner (Berlin) | Leppin, Hartmut (Hannover)
[German version] [1] Author of a Lat. historical work Author of a Latin historical work, which according to its dedication was written at the instruction of Emperor Valens. The text indicates that the author had taken part in Julian's Persian campaign (10,16,1). In the intitulatio of a MS, he is referred to as a magister memoriae. It is still questionable whether he is identical with another Eutropius of the 2nd half of the 4th cent., whose name appears in other sources: possibly he was proconsul Asiae in 371/2, praef. praet. Illyrici in 380-1, and consul posterior in 387. The historical …

Philometor

(201 words)

Author(s): Ameling, Walter (Jena) | Leppin, Hartmut (Hannover)
(Φιλομήτωρ/ Philomḗtōr, lit. 'the mother-lover'). [German version] [1] Cultic sobriquet of Greek rulers Cultic sobriquet of Greek rulers, firstly of Ptolemaeus VI, whose reign began under the regency of his mother. For many of the subsequent kings (e.g. Ptolemaeus VIII, X, XV, Cleopatra [II 12] VII, Antiochus [10] VIII, Demetrius [9] III), the statement of Gutschmid [1. 112] is valid, namely that they ruled at first under the guardianship of their mothers. There are also Egyptian connotations to the name ( Kamutef, 'the bull of his mother' [sc. Isis]), intended to show tha…

Caecilianus

Author(s): Bloch, René (Princeton) | Leppin, Hartmut (Hannover)
[English version] [1] Bf. von Karthago ab 311/312 C. wurde 311/312 (nach [1] um 309/310) durch Felix von Apthugni zum Bischof von Karthago geweiht. Ein Konzil von 70 Bischöfen unter Führung des numidischen Primas Secundus von Tigisi erklärte die Wahl des C. für ungültig und bezichtigte Felix der “ traditio”. An seiner Stelle wurde zunächst Maiorinus gewählt, dem kurz darauf (313) Donatus folgte. Kaiser Constantin ergriff die Partei des C. (vgl. bes. Constantins Brief bei Eus. HE 10,5,15-17; 10,6f.). Der Streit mit Donatus wurde auf den Synoden…

Bonifatius

Author(s): Leppin, Hartmut (Hannover) | Bloch, René (Princeton)
[English version] [1] Verteidigte 413 n. Chr. Marseille gegen Athaulf B. tat sich 413 n.Chr. bei der Verteidigung von Marseille gegen Athaulf (Ataulfus) hervor, seit 416/7 n.Chr. in Africa als Tribun bezeugt, vielleicht praepositus limitis; seit etwa 423 comes Africae. Da er unabhängig agierte, stand er immer wieder im Verdacht, gegenüber Valentinianus III. illoyal zu sein, was 427-429 zu mil. Auseinandersetzungen führte; offenbar 429 vom Kaiser als comes bestätigt. B. wurde dabei nachgesagt, die Vandalen ins Land gerufen zu haben, um seine eigene Position zu s…
