King of Mauretania jointly with *Bocchus II, ruling the later Tingitana. (Both were sons of *Bocchus I.) He fought for *Caesar in Spain and Africa and played a major part at Munda. After Caesar's death he fought for M. *Antonius (2) against Octavian's commanders in Spain, but his subjects rebelled and Bocchus, who had supported Octavian, seized his kingdom. He joined Antonius in the *Actium campaign and was killed defending Methone against *Agrippa.
