  • Aedilis Plebis 185 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Livy terms them Aediles (39.39.2), but during this period plebeians in odd numbered years can only be Aediles of the Plebs. (Broughton MRR I)

  • Triumvir Coloniis Deducendis 177 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Founded the citizen colony of Luna (Liv. 41.13.4-5; cf. Salmon, CQ 27 [1933] 30-35). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Promagistrate 173 Apulia (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Sent while Praetor designatus with imperium to Apulia to relieve an emergency caused by a plague of grasshoppers (Liv. 42.9.7, and 10.7-8). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Praetor 172 inter peregrinos, Apulia, Rome (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Election Liv. 42.9.8 Provinces and armies 42.10.13-14, and 18.2 and 6-7. (Broughton MRR I)
    • The Ms of Livy 42.9.8 reads "Cn. Sicinius sicterum" and is emended in Weissenborn's edition to read "Cn. Sicinius C. Memmius iterum"; but Sicinius{415} was Praetor in 183 and Praetor iterum in 172, while there is no need to suppose that Memmius was Praetor in 175. Accordingly I follow Münzer (APF 218f.) in reading "Cn. Sicinius iterum, C. Memmius," the name that must be supplied from Liv. 42.10.14. (Broughton MRR I)
    • His duties included raising levies to go to Brundisium and Apollonia (Liv. 42.18.2-3), entertainment of the Cappadocian prince and envoys (42.19.6), assisting C. Licinius to free the Statelliates (42.22.5-6), raising crews for 25 ships, 8000 foot and 400 horse from the Latins, and going to Brundisium with additional forces, and, with his imperium prorogued, to assume the Macedonian command until the arrival of a successor (42.27.3-8, cf. 18.2-3, 31.3, and 36.4 and 8-9; Zon. 9.22). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Difficulty arises on two points: 1. the order of Sicinius' instructions, though this is not serious since 42.18.2-3 probably refers to one portion and 42.27.3-8 to another portion of the same army; and 2. the discrepancies regarding the size and character of the forces he brought to Epirus as shown by the mutually conflicting notices in 42.31.3, and 36.4 and 9. See Nissen, Untersuch. 246, 248-250; Kahrstedt, Klio 11 (1911) 415-430; Münzer, RE no. 8. His office, prorogation, and the nature of his activity can be accepted. (Broughton MRR I)

  • Promagistrate 171 Apulia (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • See 172, Praetors. His imperium was prorogued with Macedonia as his province until he should be succeeded (Liv. 42.27.6). He brought troops to ports east of the Adriatic and garrisoned some forts in Illyria and Epirus (Liv. 42.31.3, and 36.8-9; cf. Zon. 9.22). (Broughton MRR I)
