Both are available on my Debian box...mpg321 is a clone of 
mpg123, and a mostly-drop-in-replacement per the details of the 

   apt-cache show mpg321 mpg123 | less

At least the version I have states that mpg321 is missing a few 
details of the mpg123 implementation.  321 was created because 
123 wasn't free-software at the time.  123 has since updated to a 
free-software license so it's somewhat immaterial now.
