son of
Sp. Furius (48) M. f. L. n. Camillus (pr. 366) (RE)


  • Dictator? 345 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • On the name of Furius, see Act. Tr. on 338; on that of Manlius, see Fast. Cap. on 359. Degrassi (105, on 350) is inclined to identify Furius with the Dictator of 350 and Consul of 349, but Münzer with RE no. 42, the Consul of 338 and 325. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Defeated the Aurunci and vowed a temple to Juno Moneta (Liv. 7.28.2-6). See Degrassi 106, 406f. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Consul 338 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • On the names, see Act. Tr. Apparently Maenius had no cognomen, and the writing of Nepos in full in Fast. Cap. (cf. 246 on Coruncanius) explains Nepote in Chr. 354. On the Maeniana, see Boethius, Eranos 43 (1945) 89ff. Rotondi (228) would date the Lex Maenia de die instaurationis in this year (Macrob. Sat. 1.11.5). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 8.13.1; Diod. 17.2.1; Act. Tr.; Chr. 354 (Camello et Nepote); Fast. Hyd. (Camillo et Moenio); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod., Degrassi 104, 410f. Furius celebrated a triumph over the people of Pedum and Tibur. Livy represents him as the leader in the generous settlement now granted the Latins (Liv. 8.13-14; Act. Tr., Degrassi 68f., 541; Plin. NH 34.23, and Ascon. 14 C, on statues of Camillus; Eutrop. 2.7.3). Maenius celebrated a triumph over Antium, Lavinium and Velitrae (Liv. 8.13.5 and 9; Act. Tr., Degrassi, 68f., 501; Plin. NH 34.20; Eutrop. 2.7.3; cf. Grueber, CRRBM 1.145; Cesano, Stud. Num. 1.149f.). The beaks of the ships he captured at Antium gave their name to the Rostra (Liv. 8.14.12; Plin. NH 34.20; Flor. 1.5.10), a descendant took the cognomen Antias (RE no. 18), while the Columna Maeniana, the balconies called Maeniana, and the Atrium Maenianum preserved the memory of his victory.

    • Liv. 8.29.2, omits Brutus' praenomen D.; Diod. 18.2; Chr. 354 (Camello II et Bruto); Fast. Hyd. (Camillo et Bruto); so also Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod., with Brutus' praenomen D.; Degrassi 108, 414f. Furius commanded in Samnium until forced by illness to appoint a Dictator (Liv. 8.29.6-9). Iunius commanded against the Vestini, and captured Cutina and Cingilia (Liv. 8.29.6 and 11-14).
