  • Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate 386 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Diod. has only four Military Tribunes this year, and makes no mention of Valerius and Horatius. In Diod. Cornelius' praenomen is M. The full name of Valerius appears in Fast. Cap. on 380 (Degrassi 32f.), where Degrassi's reading of the numeral III agrees with Livy's tertium, and ends the doubts raised by Hülsen (Klio 2 [1902] 248ff.) regarding his place in the regular lists for this year. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 6.6.3 and 13-15; Diod. 15.25.1; Chr. 354 (Aluginense [sic] et Cincinnato); Degrassi 101, 390f. Camillus is credited with victories over Volscians, Latins and Hernici (Liv. 6.6-9; Frontin. Str. 2.8.4), then retook Sutrium and Nepete in Etruria (6.9-10), while the Elogium (CIL 1 , p. 191 and Inscr. Ital. 13.3.61) mentions action against Velitrae. Valerius accompanied him (Liv. 6.6-10), while Horatius and Quinctius succeeded to the Volscian command (Liv. 6.9.6). Servilius {101} held command near the city and Cornelius presided over civil affairs (Liv. 6.6.13 and 15). On Valerius, see Münzer, Gent. Val. 37, no. 7. (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 377 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Aemilius' filiation is quite uncertain (see Fast. Cap.). On the name of Valerius, see Fast. Cap. on 367. The name of Veturius is tentatively supplemented on the analogy of that of L. Veturius, Mil. Tr. in 367 (see Fast. Cap.). On Sulpicius, see also Praetextatus, RE, no. 88, since the numbers III and IIII after his name in Fast. Cap. on 370 and 368 imply that these either listed him as Mil. Tr. in this year or differed from our other sources in their treatment of the years without magistrates. The name Rufus, preserved in Dio. and Zon. (above) favors the identification given first above. See Degrassi 102, 394f. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 6.32.3; Diod. 15.61.1; Dio fr. 29 and Zon. 7.24 (on Sulpicius Rufus); Chr. 354 (Mamertino et Cincinnato). Aemilius and Valerius held command against the Volscians at Satricum while Sulpicius and L. Quinctius recovered Tusculum from the Latins (Liv. 6.32-33). On Valerius, see Münzer, Gent. Val. 37 no. 7.
