  • Consul 509 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Husband of Lucretia, and according to part of the developed tradition elected first Consul along with Brutus (Augustine CD 3.16; Liv. 1.60.4; Dion. Hal. 4.84.5; 5.1.2; Plut. Popl. 1.4; Dio fr. 11; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Eutrop. 1.9.2; Cassiod.; Zon. 7.12; see Degrassi 88, 348f.). He soon either abdicated his office or had his imperium abrogated, in the one version to avoid the enmity attaching to the Tarquin name, in the other because he was inclined to deal less harshly with his nephews than Brutus with his sons who were involved in a conspiracy to restore the Tarquins (see above on Brutus).
