Tacfarinas
Tacfarinas (Latinised form of Berber Tikfarin / Takfarinas, died AD 24) was a Numidian deserter from the Roman army who led his own Musulamii tribe and a loose and changing coalition of other Ancient Libyan tribes in a war against the Romans in North Africa during the rule of emperor Tiberius (AD 14-37).
Although Tacfarinas' personal motivation is unknown, it is likely that the Roman occupation under Augustus of the traditional grazing grounds of the Musulamii, and denial of access to the latter, was the determining factor.
The war lasted for about 10 years (from ca. AD 15 to 24) and engaged four successive Roman proconsuls (governors) of the province of Africa (modern Tunisia), which, although a small part of the empire, was economically vital as the source of most of Rome's grain supply. It is unlikely that the Romans were ever in danger of being driven out of the province altogether, although in at least two periods, Tacfarinas' forces greatly outnumbered the Roman garrison. But the incapacity of Tacfarinas' lightly armed forces to defeat the Romans in set-piece battles or to successfully assault Roman fortified points prevented him from achieving a decisive victory. Nevertheless, Tacfarinas' large-scale raids caused severe disruption of the province's grain production, which in turn threatened civil disorder in Rome.
The Romans, for their part, were for a long time unable to eradicate their enemy because of the Numidians' extraordinary mobility and ability to win the support of many desert tribes and even of more sedentary Numidian tribes within Roman territory. Tacfarinas was finally caught and killed in AD 24 by a combination of determined pursuit and a lucky break in intelligence.
The direct consequence of the war was the registration of the entire Tunisian plateau for land tax and its conversion to mainly wheat cultivation. The Musulamii and other nomadic tribes were likely permanently excluded from what had been their summer grazing grounds and forced to lead a more impoverished existence in the Aures mountains and the arid zone. The war also probably sealed the long-term fate of the client kingdom of Mauretania, which was annexed in AD 44 by the Emperor Claudius (ruled 41-54).

Tiberius, Tacfarinas, and the Jews
Despite this relative wealth of sources, their combined evidence does not allow of a clear explanation as to why exactly Tiberius expelled the Jews from Rome in AD 19. Although they preserve broadly similar accounts of the circumstances surrounding this expulsion, they differ among themselves in several points of detail and interpretation.

The Maternal Uncle of Sejanus and Conqueror of Tacfarinas Tiberius. AD 14-37. Æ “Sestertius” (27.48 g, 12h). Colonia Iulia Pia Paterna in Zeugitana mint. Q. Junius Blaesus, proconsul for the second time and P. Gavius Casca. Struck AD 23. TI CAE DIVI AVG F AVG IMP VIII COS • IIII • (beginning below head and going clockwise), bare head left within pelleted border / PERM[ISSV Q IVN B]LAESI PRO COS IT C • P • GA VIO CAS • D D, Nude Hermes, wearing winged petasus and talaria, seated left on rock outcropping, holding winged caduceus in extended right hand and leaning on left set on rocks; C P I in fields; all within pelleted border. RPC 765 var. (placement of legends); cf. Amandry, Notes V, 7.II B.a1-2 (for type; dies unlisted); Müller, Afrique -; SNG Copenhagen -. Extremely rare and of historical interest. Quintus Junius Blaesus was one of the novi homines, or “new men”, who built his career in the miltary under Augustus and Tiberius. He was also the maternal uncle of Lucius Aelius Sejanus, the praefectus praetorio of Tiberius, who reputedly called him “the partner of my labors”. Beginning in AD 10, when he served as a suffect consul, Blaesus was put in command of the armies in Pannonia. He was involved in putting down the revolt that broke out among his troops following the death of Augustus in AD 14 – an event that counted his nephew among the negotiators. As a result of the increasing influence of Sejanus at court, in AD 21, Blaesus was appointed governor of Africa proconsularis, a post he held until AD 23. During that time, he finally defeated the Numidian revolt led by Tacfarinas, a deserter from the legions. This revolt was sparked by the Roman administration’s enclosure system for farming, which prevented the local tribes from using that same land for grazing. After a series of successful diplomatic maneuvers, including pardons for the rebels, which siphoned off much of Tacfarinas’ support, as well as the capture of the rebel leader’s brother, effectively ending the revolt , Blaesus returned to Rome in AD 23, where he was accorded a triumph. In AD 31 Sejanus was accused of treason and executed by order of Tiberius. As a result of his familial connection to Sejanus, Blaesus was put on trial as an associate. While awaiting execution, however, he committed suicide, a move which would save his family’s fortune and reputation. cngcoins.com
