MEMMIUS, QUINTUS

mem'-i-us, kwin'-tus (Kointos Memmios): One of the 2 Roman legates who bore a letter to the Jews after their victory over Lysias 163 B.C. (2 Maccabees 11:34). No Quintus Memmius is otherwise known to history, and no Memmius among the list of legates sent to Asia. Polybius (xxxi.18) mentions a Quintus and a Canuleius as sent to Egypt, 162 B.C., and again (xxxiii.15) the same Quintus as sent as an ambassador to Rhodes, 153 B.C. A Titus Memmius had been an envoy of the senate to Achaia and Macedonia before the date of this letter (Livy xliii.5). None of these is likely to be the one referred to in 2 Maccabees 11:34, and it is possible that no such person was sent with the letter, which is spurious.

See MANIUS.
