  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 388 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Iulius' cognomen appears from the Tullus or Tullius in Mss of Livy (ed. Conway and Walters ad loc.; see 489, note 1). On that of Lucretius, see 392, 382, and 381. Münzer (RE, nos. 31 and 94) suggests that Sulpicius Camerinus, Cos. Suff. 393, Mil. Tr. c. p. 391, is the same as Rufus listed above. The two cognomina appear together in the name of the Consul of 345. These two (Camerinus and Rufus) are close to each other in time and appear suspiciously often as colleagues of Lucretius, but Degrassi doubts the identification since at 393 in Fast. Cap. a blank space after the filiation indicates that the two cognomina did not appear there (30, 100). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 6.4.7; Diod. 15.23.1; Chr. 354 (Capitolino et Corbo); Degrassi 101, 388f. All held comand in Aequian or Etruscan territory (Liv. 6.4.7-12). On Quinctius, see Lübker no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Duovir Sacris Faciundis 387 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The fragment of Fast. Cap. mentioned in note 1 also confirms this name, since the space after the word Cincinnat. leaves room for the second cognomen Capitolinus. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Dedicated the temple of Mars vowed in the Gallic war (Liv. 6.5.8). See Lübker no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Magister Equitum 385 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Liv. 6.11.10, and 12.10; cf. Plut. Cam. 36.4, who names him Dictator; Degrassi 101, 390f. See Lübker no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 385 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Diod. states that there were only four Military Tribunes, and the confused Mss tradition yields the following words: {Gr}; see CIL 1(2), p. 123; Degrassi{102} 391. Livy reports only five names, but as Sergius was in his first Military Tribunate in 387 and in his third in 380 (Liv. 6.27.2; Fast. Cap. on 380), and the other intervening colleges are complete, his name may be supplied here (see Conway and Walters on Liv. 6.11.10). Degrassi also suggests L. Papirius Mugillanus who was Mil. Tr. c. p. for the second time in 380. He may however be the L. Papirius listed in 382, if Sp. Papirius of that year may be assigned the cognomen Crassus found in Chr. 354. This seems a probable solution since L. Papirius Crassus, Mil. Tr. c. p. 368, is listed in Fast. Cap. as Sp. f. These considerations favor placing Sergius Fidenas Coxo's second Military Tribunate in 385. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 6.11.1; Diod. 15.28.1; Chr. 354 (Capitolino et Cincinnato); Degrassi 101, 390f. On T. Quinctius, see Lübker no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 384 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • According to Diod. there were only four Military Tribunes, but Livy has six with the addition of Valerius and Camillus. On Sulpicius and Quinctius, see 388. Livy appears to distinguish between Cincinnati and Capitolini, and so lists this as Quinctius' second Military Tribunate, but T. Quinctius apparently had both cognomina in Fast. Cap. for 380 (Degrassi 32f., 392f.). The two cognomina were combined also in the case of the Mag. Eq. of 367. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 6.18.1; Diod. 15.36.1; Chr. 354 (Rufo et Camillo); Degrassi 101, 390f. According to Plutarch (Cam. 36.5-7) and Livy (6.20.11) Camillus transferred the trial of Manlius Capitolinus to the Petelian grove. Zonaras (7.24) calls him Dictator. On Valerius, see Münzer, Gent. Val. 37, no. 7; on Quinctius, Lübker no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Dictator 380 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Liv. 6.28.3; Fast. Cap. (T. Quinctius T. f. L. n. Cin[c]innat[- - - - - -]); Degrassi 32f., 102, 392f. Defeated the Latins on the Allia, captured nine towns, and received the surrender of Praeneste, then celebrated a triumph, and dedicated a statue with inscription on the Capitol (Liv. 6.28-29; Diod. 15.47.8; Dion. Hal. 14.5; Eutrop. 2.2; Oros. 3.3.5; Lyd. Magg. 1.38; Jerome Chr. ad ann. 377, p.119 Helm; Fest. 498 L; and on the triumph, Degrassi 539). See Lübker no. 5. (Broughton MRR I)
