    • Fast. Cap.: Q. Fabius Q. f. M. n. [- - - -]; P. Postumius A. f. A. n. [- - - - -]. In Diod. the praenomen of Cornelius is Gaius; on his filiation, see Fast. Cap. on 409. Valerius' name appears in full in Fast. Cap. on 406 and 403. He too has the praenomen Gaius in Diod. Livy and Fast. Cap. agree on Fabius' name, but Diod. has the praenomen Caeso. Postumius; praenomen appears as P. in Fast. Cap., M.T. in Livy (M. is accepted by Conway and Walters), and Tiberius in Diod., possibly a corruption of II (Degrassi 97). (Broughton MRR I)

Postumius took Bolae from the Aequi, but was killed by mutinous soldiers (Liv. 4.49.7-50.5; Val. Max. 9.8.3; Flor. 1.17.7; Zon. 7.20; cf. Diod. 13.42.6). On Valerius, see Münzer, Gent.

    • Liv. 4.54.1; Diod. 13.80.1; Fast. Cap. ([- -]s A. f. M. n. Coss[u]s; [- -] Medullin. II); Chr. 354 (Cosso et Medulliano); Fast. Hyd. (Casso et Mudillino), so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod.; Degrassi 28f., 98, 378f. That one or both Consuls made war on the Aequi and the Volscians{78} is variously stated in the tradition, but Arx Carventana was lost and Verrugo was taken (Liv. 4.55.1-8). (Broughton MRR I)
