Manius Aquillius (consul 129 BC)
Manius Aquillius, member of the ancient Roman gens Aquillia, was Consul in 129 BC. He put an end to the war which had been carried on against Aristonicus, the son of Eumenes II king of Pergamon, and which had been almost terminated by his predecessor, Marcus Perperna. On his return to Rome, he was accused by Publius Lentulus of maladministration in his province, Asia (Roman province), but was acquitted by bribing the judges. He obtained a triumph on account of his successes in Asia, but not until 126 BC.
