FURI0104 L. Furius (64) Medullinus


  • Patrician


  • Consul 474 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • These names appear in the order followed by Liv. and Diod.; the reverse appears in Dion. Hal. and the Chronographers. The cognomen Medullinus in Chr. 354 is supported by {Gr} in Diod. Since A. Manlius the Decemvir of 451, was a consular and advanced in years (Dion. Hal. 10.56.2; cf. Liv. 3.33.6), he is to be identified with the Consul of 474. The full name is given in Fast. Cap. on 451. Under 474 however Liv. has the praenomen C., Diod., {Gr}, and Dion. Hal., {Gr}. The cognomen {Gr} in Diod. supports the cognomen Volso given by Chr. 354. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 2.54.1; Diod. 11.63.1; Dion. Hal. 9.36.1; Chr. 354 (Vulso et Medullino); Fast. Hyd. (Mallio et Furio); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod.; Degrassi 24f., 90, 356f. Manlius held command against Veii, which asked for a forty year truce (Liv. 2.54.1; Dion. Hal. 9.36.1-3), and celebrated an ovatio (Dion. Hal. 9.36.3; cf. Act. Tr., Degrassi 66f., 537). The Consuls took the census (Dion. Hal. 9.36; Fast. Cap.). (Broughton MRR I)
