    • Bandel (Dict. 23) and Münzer (RE s. v. "Iulius", no. 360) are inclined to follow Diod. 12.64.1-3 and place the dictatorship of Tubertus in 432. The two Iulii appear to have little to do, and the election of Consuls rather than Military Tribunes was more probably the work of a Dictator. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Celebrated a triumph for a victory over the Aequi and Volsci at Algidus (Liv. 4.26-29, cf. 41.11; Ov. Fast. 6.723f.; Val. Max. 2.7.6; Plut. Cam. 2; Gell. 17.21.17; cf. Act. Tr., and Diod. 12.64.1-3). See Degrassi 95, 372f.; Lübker no. 25. (Broughton MRR I)
