    • The names are preserved in Fast. Cap. as follows: L. Valerius L. f. [- - - -]; P. (Valerius) L. f. L. [n. Poti]tus Poplicol. III; Connelius, Menenius, and Sulpicius, entire as above; [- - - -]n. Mamercin. VI; Cn. [Sergius - f. - n.] Fiden. Coxo III; Ti. Papiri[us - f. - n.] Crassus; L. (Papirius) [- f. - n.] Mugillanus II. Livy lists six, L. and P. Valerius, C. (sic) Sergius, Licinius (sic) Menenius, P. (sic) Papirius, and Sergius (sic) Cornelius Maluginensis. Diod. indicates eight, and in his confused Mss tradition may be identified two Valerii (of P. the praenomen only), Menenius (with praenomen L.), Sulpicius, Aemilius, Papirius (only one, with praenomen T.), and the apocryphal names {Gr} (add. F), C. or Cn. Terentius, and {Gr} (add. F); Degrassi 393. The nine named in Fast. Cap. have no parallel, and it appears that no college of more than eight was known to Claudius (ILS 212; cf. Liv. 5.2.10; 6.37.6; Dion. Hal. 11.56.3). Clearly Fast. Cap. has the most seriously interpolated tradition. (Broughton MRR I)

  • Censor 366 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Beloch (RG 83) regards this censorship as an interpolation in the Fasti, both because another censorship follows in 363 and the same gentile names appear for the Censors of 380. Münzer (RE s. v. "Sulpicius" 29) would accept this one but not the earlier one (see under 380). The persons named in this year can be distinguished from those in 380, and the death of one Censor is attested by Livy in 365. This would itself make another censorship necessary soon thereafter. Cram (HSC Ph 51 [1940] 78ff.) rightly defends both censorships. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Fast. Cap.; cf. Liv. 7.1.8, on the death of a Censor (Postumius) in 365; Degrassi 32f., 104, 398f. (Broughton MRR I)

  • Consul 364 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • According to Fast. Cap. Calvus was Cos. in 364 and Stolo in 361; in Livy, Val. Max. and Plut. their positions are reversed. On a similar confusion in our sources for the name of Licinius, the Mag. Eq. of 368, see 368, note 2. Sulpicius' praenomen T. in Livy is corrected from Cassiod. (Broughton MRR I)

The Consuls made war on the Hernici (Liv. 7.9.1-2); one of them, probably Sulpicius, celebrated a triumph (Act. Tr., [-Ma]rt.; Degrassi 68f., 540). (Broughton MRR I)
