Lucius Cassius Longinus (consul 107 BC)
As a praetor in 111 BC, he was sent to Numidia to bring Jugurtha to Rome, promising him safe conduct. Jugurtha valued this pledge as much as the public pledge for his safety. In his consulship with Marius, he ventured to Gallia Narbonensis to oppose the Cimbri. He was killed at the Battle of Burdigala (modern-day Bordeaux) against the Tigurini, a pagus of the Celtic Helvetii. (According to 'Dictionary of Battles & Sieges: A-E' by Tony Jaques, page 15, Tigurini under Divicus ambushed Lucius at Aginnum, modern-day Agen on the River Garonne, where he was routed and killed.)
