[ROME361] Marcus Antonius the orator was one of the most distinguished Roman orators of his time. He was elected Praetor (102BCE), with proconsular powers for the province of Cilia, and elected Consul (99BCE). Following the civil war between Gaius Marius and Lucius Cornelius Sulla he was executed 87BCE.
[ROME371] Gaius Marcus (born at Rome, son of Marcus Antonius the orator).
[ROME383] Antonia (born at Rome, daughter of Gaius Marcus) married her first-cousin [ROME381] Marcus Antonius Triumvir, see BELOW.
[ROME372] Marcus Antonius Creticus (born at Rome, son of Marcus Antonius the orator) married [ROMD372] Julia (daughter of Lucius Julius Caesar III of Rome, see ABOVE). He became Praetor (74BCE) and the following year was given the task of clearing the Mediterranean Sea from the threat of piracy. Instead, he plundered the provinces he was supposed to protect. He attacked the Cretans (who had made an alliance with the pirates) but was totally defeated, losing most of his ships, which earned him the sarcastic nickname Creticus [Conqueror of Crete]. He died soon after in Crete (c.72-72BCE), and afterwards Julia married 2. Publius Cornelius Lentulus (Sura), a politician involved in, and executed during, the Catiline Conspiracy (63BCE).
[ROME389] Marcus Antonius Triumvir (born at Rome, 83BCE, eldest son of Marcus Antonius Creticus) gambled a lot and eventually fled to Greece to escape his creditors. He was later summoned by Aulus Gabinus, Proconsul of Syria, to take part in the campaign against Aristobulus in Judea, and in support of Pharaoh Ptolemy XII in Egypt. In the ensuing campaigns he showed himself to be a talented cavalry commander, displaying great courage, and later (54BCE) became a member of the staff of Julius Caesar's armies in Gaul and early Germany (54BCE). He married 1. Fadia; then 2. his first-cousin [ROME383] Antonia (daughter of Gaius Marcus, see ABOVE); then 3. Fulvia Flacca Bambula; then 4. Tryphaina of Commagene; then 5. Octavia minor of Rome; then 6. [PTOL202] Cleopatra VII thea [=goddess] philopator [=father loving], Queen of Egypt (see PTOLEMY DYNASTY).
Marcus married off his daughter Antonia to the wealthy Anatolian Prince Pythodorus (36BCE), thereby hoping to acquire some of the latter's wealth, to further his own campaign to invade Parthia, though it is not confirmed he actually gained from this arrangement. In the naval Battle of Actium against the forces of Octavia (2nd September 31BCE), the navy of Antonius and Cleopatra was destroyed, and they were forced to flee to Egypt, pursued by Octavia. Antonius committed suicide (at Alexandria, August 30BCE) by stabbing himself with his sword, in the mistaken belief that Cleopatra had already done so, and afterwards Cleopatra and her servants killed themselves. Later, most of their family were murdered by Octavia. Only his daughters, and one son, were spared.
[ROME392] Antonia Hybrida (daughter of Marcus Antonius Triumvir & Antonia) married (36BCE) [NYSA171] Prince Pythodorus of Tralles (see NYSA).
