  • Consul 268 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • According to Suetonius (Tib. 2.2) a Claudius Drusus set up his statue with a diadem at Forum Appi and tried to take possession of Italy through his clientelae. Ihm (Hermes 36 [1901] 303) suggests that he was Claudius Russus. The order in Suetonius shows that he must be dated between the Decemvirate and Claudius Pulcher in 249. Perhaps his death in office has more significance than appears. (Broughton MRR I)

Beneventum and Ariminum were colonized this year (Vell. 1.14.7). Claudius died in office (Fast. Cap.). (Broughton MRR I)
