Cicero was proscribed by the second triumvirate and actively hunted.

A centurion named Herennius is reported to have killed him. His head and hands were hailed to the rostra in the forum in Rome as was done with all of the proscribed vitim's. Just a note: the hands of all the victims were not cut off and nailed, just Cicero's because he had written the Philippics against Mark Antony.
