    • The text tradition of Dion. Hal. (above, {Gr}) and of Diod. (11.65, on 473, {Gr}) supports the spelling Iullus. In Livy moreover the forms Tullus and Tullius frequently appear (2.43.1; 4.56.2) and indicate that Iullus was the earlier form of the cognomen. In Fast. Cap. however, which was probably completed after Vergil's Aeneid had become generally known, the form Iulus was regular; see Fast. Cap. on 482, 473, 451, and 408 (Degrassi 354f., 358f., 364f., 378f.). See L.R. Taylor, CPh 41 (1946) 1ff. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Dion. Hal. 8.1.1; Chr. 354 (Iulo et Mamertino); Fast. Hyd. (Tullo et Rufo); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); omitted by Livy. See Degrassi 88, 354f. Incidents at the celebration of the ludi caused the outbreak of hostilities with the Volscians and Coriolanus (Liv. 2.37-39; Dion. Hal. 8.1-15; Plut. Cor. 26-28). (Broughton MRR I)
