    • 2 Klose follows D.- G. (3.689) and Willems (1.516) in identifying the Flamen with a son of the Consul of 91 and father of the Quaestor of 47, but the order of the list (see AJPh 63 [1942] 397) favors identification with the Quaestor of 47 himself. (Broughton MRR II)

  • Quaestor before 47 Syria (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • 5 According to Dio, Iulius was a Quaestor when appointed to the Syrian command in the summer of 47. As no elections (except those for plebeian offices) were held for 47 until the autumn of that year (Dio 42.20.4, and 51.4), he must have been Quaestor in 48 at the latest. D.-G. list him as a Legate (3.701). (Broughton MRR II)
