Career

  • Consul 503 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The name of Menenius precedes in Liv., Fast. Hyd., Chr. Pasc., and Cassiod., that of Postumius in Dion. Hal. and Chr. 354. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 2.16.7; Dion. Hal. 5.44.1; 6.69.1; Chr. 354 (Tuberto II et Lanato); Fast. Hyd. (Menenio Agrippa et Postumio); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod.; Degrasi 88, 348f. According to Livy (2.16.8-9), Cora and Pometia seceded to the Aurunci, whose defeat led to the celebration of a triumph by one of the Consuls, we are not told which. According to Dionysius, Postumius was defeated by the Sabines, and saved by Menenius, so that Menenius celebrated the triumph and Postumius an ovatio (Dion. Hal. 5.44.1-48.4; 6.96.1; Plin. NH 15.125; Auct. Vir. Ill. 18.1; Zon. 7.13; cf. Act. Tr., Degrassi 64f., 536). Jerome (Chr. ad ann. 504, p. 107 Helm) places a census in this period. On Postumius, see L├╝bker no. 24.

    • Dion. Hal. lists only eight, but Jacoby notes evidence of lacunae before and after the name of Servilius, but it is not sure whether more than the cognomina have been lost. One of the missing names is Larcius, who took an active part in the discussions (6.81.1-82.1), and whose name may have followed that of Aebutius since the latter's cognomen Helva has apparently been replaced by that of Larcius Flavus. Valerius is represented as the senior member in both Dion. Hal. (6.71.1), and possibly in the Elogium (CIL 1(2), p. 189; Inscr. Ital. 13.3.60 and 78), a version which minimizes the part otherwise assigned to Menenius Agrippa (Liv. 2.32.8 and 33.10-11; Dion. Hal. 6.83.1-88.2). For the many later references to Agrippa's parable, see RE. (Broughton MRR I)
    • List by Dion. Hal. (6.69.3 and 81.1-82.1) of a group of ten envoys, all consulars but one, sent to treat with the leaders of the secession of the Plebs. (Broughton MRR I)
