a celebrated orator in the reign of Nero, seems to have been the son of Julius Africanus. of the Gallic state of the Santoni, who was condemned by Tiberius, A. D. 32. (Tac. Ann. 6.7.) Quintilian, who had heard Julius Africanus, speaks of him and Domitius Afer as the best orators of their time. The eloquence of Africanus was chiefly characterized by vehemence and energy. (Quint. Inst. 10.1.118, 12.10.11, comp. 8.5.15; Dial. de Orat. 15.) Pliny mentions a grandson of this Julius Africanus, who was also an advocate and was opposed to him upon one occasion. (Ep. 7.6.) He was consul suffectus in A. D. 108.
