AGRICOLA, CNZZUS Julius, was born at Forum Julii, now Frejus, in Provence, 37 A.D., and was in Vespasian's time made lieutenant to Vettius Bolanus in Britain. Upon held for three years ; he then was recalled to Rome, and winter in. He spent the following winter in concerting inspiring them with a desire of imitating the Roman mannobles at length had their sons educated ; and they who adopted the Roman dress ; and, as Tacitus observes, they and in his fourth he subdued the nations betwixt the Solway and the friths of Forth and Clyde, into which the rivers Bodotria, and Glotta discharged themselves ; and here lie built a chain of fortresses to check the nations yet unconquered. In his fifth he fixed garrisons along the western coasts, over against Ireland. In his sixth campaign he passed the river Bodotria ; ordering his fleet, the first which the Romans over had in those parts, to row along the coasts and take a view of the northern parts. The fleet sailed round by the northern and western coasts, and first proved Britain to be an island. In the following spring, the Britons raised an army of 30,000 men, under the command of Galgacus, to oppose the invaders. In the engagement that ensued at the foot of the Grampians the Romans gained the victory, and 10,000 of the Britons are said to have been killed. This happened in the reign of the emperor Domitian, who, growing jealous of the glory of Agricola, recalled him, under pretence of making him governor of Syria. Agricola was in Britain fully seven years, from 78 to 85 e.D. ; and he died on the 23d August, 93 A.D., when he had attained the age of 55. Agricola was a man of great integrity ; he possessed high military talents, together with administrative abilities of the first rank. The Life of Agricola, written by his son-in-law, the historian Tacitus, is a model of simple and dignified biography.
