    • Mommsen's view (GS 8.284f.) that Maenius was Pr. Urb. is opposed by Foucart (MAI 37 [1906] 2,316f.) who thinks he was Pr. Peregrinus and Raecius Pr. Urbanus. The recorded activity of Maenius all refers to foreigners, while Raecius enforced the recall of all senators to Rome who were not away on public business. The balance of evidence favors Foucart's view. Cato's speech in favor of a Lex Maevia (FOR 1.86f., 214), dated by a reference to King Seleucus (187-176 B.C.) may refer to Maenius, since no Maevii are known in office then (cf. RE s. v. "Maevius" no. 1). (Broughton MRR I)
