In 56 BCE Publius Asicius was accused of murdering Dio of Alexandria – an Egyptian envoy. The murder was believed to have been commissioned by
Pompey. The accusation was brought by Titus Coponius with whom Dio was staying.
The defendant was defended by
Marcus Cicero. Eventually, Asicius was acquitted. Soon after, Marcus Celius was accused of the same crime.
