    • Liv. 2.17.1; Dion. Hal. 5.49.1; 8.69.3, and 70.2; Chr. 354 (Tricosto et Bigellino); Fast. Hyd. (Tricasto et Vitellino); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod.; Zon. 7.13; on Verginius, Auct. De Praenom. 2; and on Cassius, Act. Tr., Degrassi 64f., 536; Val. Max. 6.3.1. See Degrassi 88, 350f.; and on Verginius, L├╝bker no. 5. According to Livy, the Consuls fought the Aurunci. One of them was wounded, but the other captured and destroyed Pometia and both celebrated triumphs (2.17.1-7; cf. 2.25.5-6). According to Dion. Hal., Cassius defeated the Sabines and won a triumph (5.49.1-3; 8.70.2; Act. Tr., Degrassi 64f., 536; Val. Max. 6.3.1; Zon. 7.13), while Verginius captured Cameria (Dion. Hal. 5.49.3-5; cf. Zon. 7.13). (Broughton MRR I)

  • Tribunus Militum? 486 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • A curious and broken notice in Festus (180 L) mentions a wide stone paving and the burning near the Circus of a number of persons, whose names, partially preserved, for the most part agree with names in the consular Fasti. Val. Max. (6.3.2) mentions a P. Mucius, Tr. Pl., who burned his nine colleagues for conspiring with Sp. Cassius (cf. Dio fr. 22; Zon. 7.17), but no authority places the number of Tribunes of the Plebs at ten so early. As the names are almost all patrician and consular, it remains uncertain to what incident or what losses in the Volscian Wars the passage of Festus refers. (Broughton MRR I)
