CURI0164 P. Curiatius (6) Fistus Trigeminus


  • Patrician


  • Consul 453 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The names are preserved entire in Fast. Cap. except the filiation of Curiatius. His name appears as Horatius in Dion. Hal., while Diod. has only the cognomen Trigeminus. The cognomen Varus in Chr. 354 arises because it was frequent among the patrician Quinctilii. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 3.32.1; Diod. 12.7.1; Fast. Cap. (see note 1); Dion. Hal. 10.53.1; Chr. 354 (Varo et Trigemino); Fast. Hyd. (Festo et Quintillo), so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod.; Degrassi 24f., 93, 364f. Quinctilius died in the pestilence of this year (Liv. 3.32.4; Dion. Hal. 10.53.3). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Decemvir Consulari Imperio Legibus Scribundis 451 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Diod. preserves all or part of eight names, omitting Sestius and Curiatius, Fast. Cap. all or part of six with space for the rest, those of Sestius, Curiatius, Romilius and Postumius, which are supplied from the information on their consulships (Degrassi 26f., 94, 364f.). According to Dion. Hal. (10.56.2) they were all consulars, but this principle was not applied consistently in Livy or Fast. Cap. See notes 3 and 4. (Broughton MRR I)
    • As in 453, Dion. Hal. has Horatius for Curiatius. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Prepared and caused the enactment of ten tables of laws (Cic. Rep. 2.61; Liv. 3.33.1-36.2; Diod. 12.23.1; Dion. Hal. 10.56.1-2; Tac. Ann. 3.27; Gell. 11.18.6; 17.21.15; 20.1; Dig. and 24; Zon. 7.18). (Broughton MRR I)
