  • 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)

    • Their return this year led to the creation of the Decemvirate in 451 (Liv. 3.32.6-7, and 33.5; Dion. Hal. 10.54.2-56.1; Zon. 7.18). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Decemvir Consulari Imperio Legibus Scribundis 451 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Diod. preserves all or part of eight names, omitting Sestius and Curiatius, Fast. Cap. all or part of six with space for the rest, those of Sestius, Curiatius, Romilius and Postumius, which are supplied from the information on their consulships (Degrassi 26f., 94, 364f.). According to Dion. Hal. (10.56.2) they were all consulars, but this principle was not applied consistently in Livy or Fast. Cap. See notes 3 and 4. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Prepared and caused the enactment of ten tables of laws (Cic. Rep. 2.61; Liv. 3.33.1-36.2; Diod. 12.23.1; Dion. Hal. 10.56.1-2; Tac. Ann. 3.27; Gell. 11.18.6; 17.21.15; 20.1; Dig. and 24; Zon. 7.18). (Broughton MRR I)
