Headword: Ῥουτίλιος Ῥοῦφος
Adler number: rho,239
Translated headword: Rutilius Rufus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
He lived in the time of Scipio;[1] he campaigned with him,[2] and wrote a history of the aforementioned events.[3] He was at that time a chiliarch [= tribunus militum], as Appian says in the Roman History.[4]
Greek Original:
Ῥουτίλιος Ῥοῦφος: ἐπὶ Σκιπίωνος ἦν, ὃς αὐτῷ συνεστράτευε, συγγράψας τὰ τότε φθάσαντα γενέσθαι: ὃς τηνικαῦτα χιλίαρχος ἐγεγόνει, ὥς φησιν Ἀππιανὸς ἐν τῇ Ῥωμαϊκῇ ἱστορίᾳ.
Notes:
P. Rutilius Rufus, born c.160 BCE, consul 105 BCE. See generally Ernst Badian in OCD(4) s.v. (p.1301).
[1] Scipio Aemilianus.
[2] In Spain, 133 BCE.
[3] Despite the impression given by this phrase, Rufus's lost history (written after his conviction for repetundae, and retirement to Smyrna, in 92) is thought to have covered not merely the Spanish campaigning but his whole adult life; and it has coloured all surviving accounts of the period. See E. Badian, 'The early historians', in T.A. Dorey (ed.), Latin Historians (London 1966) 1-38, at 23-25.
[4] Appian, Iberica 382 Viereck-Roos-Gabba. For tribuni see generally chi 305.
