FURI0059 Sex. Furius (26) (Medullinus)? (Fusus)?


  • Patrician


  • Consul 488 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The cognomen Rutilus is frequent in the Nautian gens. Vigellinus in Chr. 354 indicates some confusion with Sp. Cassius Vecellinus (see 502, 493, 486). On the use of these cognomina in the Nautian and Furian families, see Degrassi, Indices, on Fusus, Fast. Cap. 481 and 472, on Medullinus, ib. 474, 420, 409, 405, on Rutilus, ib. 475, 458. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 2.39.9; Dion. Hal. 8.16.1; Chr. 354 (Rutilo et Vigellino II); Fast. Hyd. (Nautio et Rufo); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod.; Degrassi 88, 354f. Credited with normal duties in connection with the drama of Coriolanus, and a raid on the Volscians after his withdrawal (Liv. 2.39.1-40.13; Dion. Hal. 8.16.1-63.4; Plut. Cor. 28.3-39.6; cf. Frontin. Str. 1.8.1). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Tribunus Militum? 486 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • A curious and broken notice in Festus (180 L) mentions a wide stone paving and the burning near the Circus of a number of persons, whose names, partially preserved, for the most part agree with names in the consular Fasti. Val. Max. (6.3.2) mentions a P. Mucius, Tr. Pl., who burned his nine colleagues for conspiring with Sp. Cassius (cf. Dio fr. 22; Zon. 7.17), but no authority places the number of Tribunes of the Plebs at ten so early. As the names are almost all patrician and consular, it remains uncertain to what incident or what losses in the Volscian Wars the passage of Festus refers. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Festus 180 L. (Broughton MRR I)
