wall, and hung over the sea The city was destroyed and burnt seven hundred years after its original foundation ; and in this manner the Punic war was finished. CH. XVII.—State of Numidia—And Mauritania—Jugurtha— Metellus—Mardus—Bocchus—Wars with the Romans in Spain—Death of Attalus. AT this time, Micipsa, a friend of the Roman people, was reigning in Numidia. After his death, Jugurtha succeeded to the kingdom ; and he provoked a war with the Romans by the deaths of Adhubal and Hiempsal, the children of Micipaa. On this occasion, Numidia was first conquered by Metellus, the consul, and afterwards it was entirely subdued by Marcine. So also Mauritania, which was governed by king Bocchus, was subjugated by the Romans. After that, the Biscayans, the people of Gallicia and Lusitania, Spanish tribes, were almost wholly conquered in a single battle. In Italy too, the Epirots, who had conspired in Illyricum with Pyrrhus, their king, against the Romans, were first pacified and tranqunlised, but afterwards were conquered and compelled to submit to the Roman yoke, along with the Achseans and Messalians. After this, the Roman fortune, not content with the limits of Italy, began to extend itself over distant kingdoms. In nearly almost this very time Attalus, the king of Asia, died, and by his last will left the Roman people the inheritors o f his kingdom. CH. XVIII.—Antiochus—Onias—Jason. BUT to return to the Jewish history. The generals of Alexander the Great being dead, by one fortune or another, then Antiochus Epiphanes, already spoken of, reigned in Syria, the son of Antiochus, the great king, in about the hundred and thirtyseventh year of the reign of the Greeks. In those days Onias was the high priest at Jerusalem. And his brother Jason being desirous to wrest the priesthood from him, began without disguise to violate the laws of Judaea, and to trample on them openly in all particulars, as if he were unable to gain the priesthood, which he was desirous of, by any other means than wickedness.
