  • Aedilis Curulis 187 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Liv. 39.7.8-9. On Postumius, see Lübker no. 3. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Praetor 185 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Elections: Liv. 39.23.2 Provinces omitted in Livy. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Maxis (95) and Stella Maranca (306) identify the Consul of 181 with the Praetor of 184. I have given Münzer's identification here.{374} (Broughton MRR I)
    • p. 732, footnote 71 (Brennan 2000)
  • Consul 181 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The name Cethegus is attested by the Fast. Cap., by Cassius Hemina in Pliny (loc. cit.), and by Sulpicius Blitho in Nepos (loc. cit.). Lentulus therefore in Livy, and from him in Valerius Maximus, is simply a mistake.{387} (Broughton MRR I)
    • Nep. Hann. 13.1; Liv. 40.18.1, and 35.1; Fast. Cap., Degrassi 48f., 122, 456f.; Val. Max. 1.1.12; 2.5.1; Plin. NH 13.85, with Cass. Hem.{384} fr. 37 Peter; Plut. Num. 22.5; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod. Both Consuls were assigned to Liguria and Baebius returned to hold the elections (Liv. 40.18.3, 26.5-6, and 35.1). They instituted the first bribery law (Liv. 40.12.11; cf. FOR 1.54f., 187; Schol. Bob. 2.78 Stangl); and Baebius a law to require the election of 4 and 6 Praetors, respectively, on alternate years (Liv. 40.44.2; cf. FOR 1.54f., 187). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Proconsul 180 Liguria, Samnium (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • On this cognomen, see 181, note 1. (Broughton MRR I)
    • His imperium prorogued in Liguria, he transferred the Apuani to Samnium, and celebrated a triumph (Liv. 40.36.7, 37.8-38.9; see Degrassi 554). See above, on Baebius. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Triumphator 180 (Rich 2014) Expand
    • Triumph de Liguribus Apuaneis. MRR I.388, Itgenshorst no. 187, Rich no. 186. (Rich 2014)
  • Decemvir Agris Dandis Assignandis 173 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • This Decemvir may possibly be identified with no. 96, the Pr. Peregrinus of 184, but the consul of 181 who transferred the Ligures Corneliani to Samnium in 180 would probably be selected to assign Ligurian land. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Elected to assign unoccupied lands in Liguria and Gaul to individual settlers, ten iugera each to Romans, three each to Latins (Liv. 42.4.3-4). (Broughton MRR I)
