Subject: Lukillios, a Greek name (apparently).

According to Wikipedia, there once was an author of Greek origin who lived during the reign of the Roman Emperor Nero and his name was apparently Lukillios, latinized to Lucillius by the Romans (or vice versa, I can't be certain).

I have never heard of Lukillios before and I would like to know if it is indeed a legitimate Greek name (i.e. not a hellenized version of a latinate name), and what it means. Could it perhaps be derived from an element that is of similar origin to Greek lykos "wolf" (sometimes also written as lukos)?

Thank you to those that can shed more light on this matter and satisfy my curiosity. :)
