  • Legatus (Envoy) 493 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • 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(6.81.1-82.1), and whose name may have followed that of Aebutius since the latter's cognomen Helva has apparently been replaced by that of Larcius Flavus.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)
