Cassius Longinus, Quintus


Cassius Longinus, Quintus

▪ Roman official
died 47 BC, at the mouth of the Ebro River, Tarraconensis

      Roman official whose tyrannical government of Spain greatly injured Julius Caesar's cause in Spain during the civil war (49–45) between Caesar and the Optimates. He was either a brother or a cousin of the famous assassin of Caesar.

      As tribune in 49, he supported Caesar, who made him governor of Farther Spain. Cassius' oppression of the Spanish provincials led to a revolt at Corduba (Córdoba), which he put down with merciless severity. Some of his troops then revolted (48) and proclaimed a new governor. Cassius was allowed to leave the province but died in a shipwreck at the mouth of the Ebro River.
