  • Salius 167 to 130 (Rüpke 2005) Expand
    • Macrob. Sat. 3.14.14. He must have become a Salius before his father's death in 167 (see Augurs, and Dion. Hal. 2.71). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Macrob. 3.14.14; see 167, Salii. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Macrob. Sat. 3.14.14. It is not certain whether he continued to perform the duties of a Salius till his death. See 167. (Broughton MRR I)

    • Plut. TG 4.1. A member of the college along with Ti. Gracchus, but when he entered is not known. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Patrician. Probable member of the college of Augurs just before the death of Tiberius Gracchus in 133. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Plutarch states clearly that Gracchus was an Augur, but is not quite so explicit about Claudius, though it is probable that the banquet they attended together was an augural banquet ({Gr}). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Plut. TG 4.1. On his death before 129, see Cic. Rep. 1.31. (Broughton MRR I)

  • Consul 143 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Fast. Cap., Degrassi 52f., 125, 466f. (Ap. Clau[dius C. f. Ap. n. Pu]lcher, Q. Caeciliu[s Q. f. L. n. Metell.] Macedon.); Fast. Ant., ib. 160f. ([Ap. Clau]di P[ulcher], [Q. Caecili. M]et.); Liv. Oxy. Per. 53; Frontin. Aq. 1.7; Obseq. 21; Auct. Vir. Ill. 61.3; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Oros. 5.4.7; Cassiod.; and on Metellus, SIG 680; Val. Max. 7.1.1; 8.5.1. Claudius was assigned Italy, made war upon the Salassi, was defeated, but after the Decemviri at the command of the Sibylline books made an offering in enemy territory he was victorious (Liv. Per. 53; Dio fr. 74; Obseq. 21; Oros. 5.4.7). Being refused a triumph, he celebrated one on his own authority, foiling a tribunician veto by having his daughter, a Vestal, ride with him (Cic. Cael. 34; Val. Max. 5.4.6; Suet. Tib. 2; Dio fr. 74; Oros. 5.4.7; Macrob. Sat. 3.14.14; see Degrassi 558). Metellus was assigned Hither Spain, but{472} had first to subdue an uprising of slaves at Minturnae before he engaged in the Celtiberian war in Spain (Liv. Oxy. Per. 53; Val. Max. 9.3.7; App. Ib. 76; see Schulten, Gesch. Numantia 66f.; and 142, Promagistrates). (Broughton MRR I)

    • p. 223 (Ryan 1998)
  • Censor 136 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Fast. Cap., Degrassi 52f., 125, 468f. ([Q. Fulv]ius M. f. M. n. Nobilior). Claudius exercised his office harshly but Fulvius was more moderate (Dio fr. 81; Fest. 360 L). Claudius was named Princeps Senatus (Plut. TG 4.1). They completed the lustrum in 135 (Liv. Per. 56). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Willems (Sénat 1.113) holds that Scipio Nasica Serapio, Cos. 138, was chosen Princeps Senatus in 136, but the passage of Diodorus (34.33) on which he bases his argument has confused three generations of Nasicae. The evidence of Plutarch strongly indicates that Claudius was Princeps Senatus in 133. (Broughton MRR I)
