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.
Greek Original:
Ἰόβας, Λιβύης καὶ Μαυρουσίας βασιλεύς, ὃν λαβόντες καὶ μαστιγώσαντες ἐπόμπευσαν οἱ Ῥωμαῖοι: οὐ μὴν ἀνεῖλον διὰ τὴν παίδευσιν. ἦν δὲ ἐπὶ Αὐγούστου Καίσαρος καὶ τὴν Κλεοπάτρας θυγατέρα Σελήνην, ἣν ἐκ τοῦ Καίσαρος Γαί̈ου γενομένην ἐπεποίητο, γυναῖκα εἰλήφει. συνήκμαζε δὲ αὐτῷ Δίδυμος ὁ Χαλκέντερος, ὁ καὶ πολλὰ γράψας κατ' αὐτοῦ. ἔγραψε πάνυ πολλά.
