Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus Magistrate for Establishing a New Colony of Narbo from 118 BC to 117 BC.
Cnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbuswas Duovir Colonia Deducenda in Narbo for the year 118 BC, and struck a joint issue with his colleagues for the year, L. Licinius Crassus and M. Aurelius Scaurus.

He was elected consul in 96 BC and censor in 92 BC with Lucius Licinius Crassus the orator, with whom he was frequently at variance. They took joint action, however, in suppressing the recently established Latin rhetorical schools, which they regarded as injurious to public morality; in the words of Cicero, these were seen as 'schools of impudence'.

Their censorship was long celebrated for their disputes. Domitius was of a violent temper, and was moreover in favor of the ancient simplicity of living, while Crassus loved luxury and encouraged art. Among the many sayings recorded of both, we are told that Crassus observed, "that it was no wonder that a man had a beard of brass, who had a mouth of iron and a heart of lead."
