  • Consul 471 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The name of Claudius appears in full in Fast. Cap. on 451; that of Quinctius, based on the notices given above, is confirmed by those given under his other consular years. On his filiation, see Fast. Cap. on 460, since Cincinnatus was perhaps a brother. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 2.56.5; Diod. 11.67.1; Dion. Hal. 9.42.3, and 43.1; Chr. 354 (Inreligiense et Barbatus); Fast. Hyd. (Sabino et Capitolino); so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod.; Degrassi (91, 358). Claudius opposed, while Quinctius played the role of peace-maker, in the struggle leading to the passage of the Publilian law (see Tribunes of the Plebs). Claudius, in command against the Volscians, enforced discipline by using the punishment of decimation (Liv. 2.58.4-59.11; Dion. Hal. 9.50.3-7; cf. Val. Max. 9.3.5; Frontin. Str. 4.1.34; Flor. 1.17.2; App. Ital. 7; Zon. 7.17); Quinctius held command against the Aequi (Liv. 2.58.3-4, and 60.1-3; Dion. Hal. 9.50.1-2; Frontin. Str. 2.7.10). On Quinctius, see Lübker, no. 1. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Consul 468 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • On Quinctius' name see 471, Consuls; on that of Servilius, see above. Diod. preserves the cognomen Structus, which may not have appeared in Fast. Cap. at all (Degrassi 91). (Broughton MRR I)

    • Cos. 471, 468, 465, 443, 439. The term pro consule (MRR 1.34, 464 B.C.), strange for this period, is taken by Sherwin-White (Roman Citizenship) 25) to refer to a federal, not a Roman, command. See also the note in Ogilvie, Comm. Livy 464-466. (Broughton MRR III)
