  • Consul 421 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • 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 415 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Fabius has the praenomen Gaius in Diod., and M. in the Mss of Livy. See however 421, note 1; Fast. Cap. on 407, and Conway and Walters on Liv. 4.43.1, 49.1, 57.12, and 58.6. The filiation of Valerius, given in Fast. Cap. here, on 407, and 404, is doubted by Münzer (Gent. Val. 36, no. 5) who supplies P. n., as in that of L. Valerius, Mil. Tr. c. p. 414, 406. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 4.49.1; Diod. 13.34.1; Fast. Cap. (P. Cornelius [A. f.] P. n. [- -]; C. Valerius L. f. Volusi n. [- -]); Chr. 354 (Casso et Cincinnato); Degrassi 26f., 97, 378f. On Valerius, see Münzer, Gent. Val. 36, no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 407 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • On Furius ({Gr}, Diod.), who is stated by Livy to hold the office for the second time but has no mark of iteration in Fast. Cap., see 413, note 1. For Valerius' name, combine Fast. Cap. on 415 and here. In Livy Fabius has the praenomen Cn.; see however 421, note 1, and 415, note 1; Degrassi 96. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 4.57.12; Diod. 14.3.1; Fast. Cap. ([- -] n. Potit(us) Volusus II; [- -] Medullinus; and the others entire, both with numeral II); Chr. 354 (Voluso II et Structo III); Degrassi 28f., 98, 380f. They lost Verrugo to the Volscians (Liv. 4.58.3-5; Diod. 14.11.5). On Valerius, see Münzer, Gent. Val. 36, no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
