    • Liv. 2.28.1; Dion. Hal. 6.34.1, and 69.3, on Verginius; Ascon. 76 C, with reading L. Veturius; Chr. 354 (Caelimontano et Cicurino); Fast. Hyd. (Caelimontano II et Vitellino III); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod.; Degrassi 88, 352f. In this, the year of the first secession of the Plebs, a conciliatory Dictator (see below) induced them to serve against invaders. Veturius fought the Aequi and Verginius the Volscians (Liv. 2.30.8-15; Dion.{14} Hal. 6.42.1-2; Frontin. Str. 2.1.7). On Verginius, see L├╝bker no. 7, and on Veturius, ib. no. 4. (Broughton MRR I)

    • 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(6.81.1-82.1), and whose name may have followed that of Aebutius since the latter's cognomen Helva has apparently been replaced by that of Larcius Flavus.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)
    • List by Dion. Hal. (6.69.3 and 81.1-82.1) of a group of ten envoys, all consulars but one, sent to treat with the leaders of the secession of the Plebs. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum? 486 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • A curious and broken notice in Festus (180 L) mentions a wide stone paving and the burning near the Circus of a number of persons, whose names, partially preserved, for the most part agree with names in the consular Fasti. Val. Max. (6.3.2) mentions a P. Mucius, Tr. Pl., who burned his nine colleagues for conspiring with Sp. Cassius (cf. Dio fr. 22; Zon. 7.17), but no authority places the number of Tribunes of the Plebs at ten so early. As the names are almost all patrician and consular, it remains uncertain to what incident or what losses in the Volscian Wars the passage of Festus refers. (Broughton MRR I)
