Acilius Glabrio, Manius (3), Roman consul, 67 BCE

Acilius, Manius, son of (2), as praetor repetundarum (70 bce) presided over Verres' trial. Consul 67, he fought ineffectually against Mithradates VI until superseded by Pompey. ‘Lazy and negligent’ (Cic. Brut.239), but well connected, he was a pontifex and possibly censor 64 (Broughton, MRR 3. 3).
