Acilius Glabrio, Manius (4), Roman consul, 91 CE

Acilius, Manius, patrician and member of Domitian's consilium (council of advisers); as consul in ce 91 he had to fight in the arena at Domitian's Alban estate (see alba longa) and was exiled. The cause is uncertain; Dio alleges jealousy of his prowess. His execution in 95 for plotting revolution contributed to Domitian's assassination the following year. The catacomb to which his name is attached may belong to the end of the 2nd cent.
