Milo (Roman partisan leader)

Milo (Titus Annius Papianus Milo), 95 BC–47 BC, Roman partisan leader. As tribune of the people (57 BC) he obtained the recall from exile of Cicero. At the insistence of Pompey, Milo hired a gang to fight the gang of Clodius. The rivals kept Rome in an uproar until it ended (52 BC) in the death of Clodius in an affray at Bovillae, on the Appian Way. Pompey was appointed sole consul to restore order in the city, and Milo was brought to trial. Cicero, his advocate, was so intimidated that he did not deliver his oration, which he later published (Pro Milone). Milo was exiled to Massilia, joined the insurrection of Marcus Caelius in Italy, and was defeated, captured, and killed. Milo's wife was Sulla's daughter.

He is said to have carried a heifer on his shoulders through the Olympic stadium, killed her with a blow of his fist, and devoured her in the course of a day.
