King of Libya and Mauretania; the Romans captured, flogged and paraded him; yet on account of his erudition they did not kill him. He lived under Caesar Augustus and married Cleopatra's daughter Selene, whose father was Gaius Caesar.[1] A contemporary of his was Didymus Bronze-guts,[2] who wrote many works against him. His own writings were very numerous.
