    • He may have been Pr. in 120 and a promagistrate in 119. I list him in 119 as the latest possible date (SIG(3) 700). Stella Maranca has mistakenly listed him in 117. Panemus 20, year 29 of the Macedonian era would fall in July 119 (Tod, ABSA 23 [1918-19] 206-217; 24 [1919-1921] 56). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Killed in battle with Celts, probably Scordisci (SIG 700: {Gr}). See L├╝bker no. 4; D.- G. 4, no. 16. (Broughton MRR I)
    • p. 742, footnote 163 (Brennan 2000)
    • In MRR 2.449, delete the cognomen Fostlus, which refers to the figure of Faustulus on the coins, and insert RE no. 17. In MRR 2.449, and Index, 603, refer also to Crawford, RRC 1.267-268, no. 235, 137 B.C. He may have been pr. in 120 and procos. in Macedonia in 119 (MRR 1.526, 527, note 3; Sumner, Orators 51; cf. F. Papazoglou, ANRW 2.7.1, 1979, 310). (Broughton MRR III)
