  • Consul 423 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Münzer (RE no. 166) suggested that Q. Fabius Ambustus Vibulanus, Cos. 412, should be identified with Vibulanus. However there is no mark of iteration in any of our sources for 412. See the arguments of Degrassi (97) against Münzer's view. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 4.37.1, and 40.2; Chr. 354 (Arretino et Vivullano); Fast. Hyd. (Atratino et Vibulano), so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod.; on Sempronius, Val. Max. 3.2.8. See Degrassi 96, 374f. For endangering his army in the war with the Volscians Sempronius was placed on trial in 422 and finally convicted and fined in 420 (Liv. 4.37-44; cf. Dion. Hal. 12.6.5; Val. Max. 3.2.8; 6.5.2). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 416 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Liv. 4.47.8 (who omits Fabius, but lists him as Mil. Tr. iterum at 4.49.7); Diod. 13.9.1; Fast. Cap. (A. Sempronius L. f. A. n. [- -]; Q. Fabius Q. f. M. n. [- -]); Chr. 354 (Arratino III et Mugillano II); Degrassi 26f., 97, 376f. On Papirius, see Lübker no. 15. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 414 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • 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)
    • Liv. 4.49.7; Diod. 13.38.1; Fast. Cap. (note 1); Chr. 354 (Vivullano II et Potito); Degrassi 26f., 97, 378f.
