    • Cn., Liv. The praenomen N. is based on Fast. Cap., and is substituted in Livy at 4.49.1, 57.12, and 58.6 by Sigonius (see Conway and Walters ad locc.). According to Auct. De Praenom. (6) and Festus (174 L), Numerius came into use in the Fabian Gens when the survivor of the Cremera disaster married a daughter of Num. Otacilius, a Samnite of Malventum. The date is doubted by many, including Münzer (APF 71), and lastly by Degrassi (96), who considers Cn. preferable to N. The praenomen otherwise appears mainly in the lines of the Pictores and the Buteones. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 4.43.1; Fast. Cap. ([- - - -Capit]olin(us) Barbatus, N. Fabius [- - - - -]); Chr. 354 (Capitolino et Vivullano), so also Fast. Hyd., and Chr. Pasc.; Degrassi 26f., 96, 376f. Fabius celebrated an ovatio for a success over the Aequi (Liv. 4.43.2; Degrassi 539). A law of this year increased the number of the Quaestors from two to four (Liv. 4.43.12; Tac. Ann. 11.22).

  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 405 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Diod. gives the number as six, but omits Cincinnatus, Furius, and Aemilius; and has Mamilius for Manlius. On T. Quinctius see 421; he was Capitolini f. (Liv. 4.43.1). For Iulius' cognomen, see 489, note 1 (Tullus, Liv.; Iulus, Fast. Cap.). On Furius, see 413, note 1; the numeral in Livy is tertium. Livy's praenomen for Aemilius, M., is corrected to M'. as in Fast. Cap.; for his cognomen Livy has Mamercus. These magistrates are differently ordered in each of our three chief sources. Livy's order is followed above. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 4.61.1; Diod. 14.17.1; Fast. Cap. ([- -]) Iulus II; [- -Capit]olin. Barb[at.]; [- -Cinc]innatus II; the others entire, Furius with numeral II); Chr. 354 (Iulo II et Mamertino); Degrassi 28f., 98, 380f. These began the siege of Veii (Liv. 4.61.2). (Broughton MRR I)
