  • Consul 225 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Polyb. 2.23.5-6; Fast. Cap. (names entire); Plin. NH 3.138; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Oros. 4.13.5; Cassiod., and on Aemilius, Liv., 23.21.6; Act. Tr.; Eutrop. 3.5, see Degrassi 44f., 118, 440f. Aemilius was sent against the Gauls at Ariminum while a Praetor was sent to Etruria; but on learning of a Gallic invasion of Etruria which defeated the army of the Praetor, he went there, pursued the Gauls as they retreated, caught them between his army and that of his consular colleague at Telamon, and after his victory ravaged the country of the Ligurians and the Boii (Polyb. 2.23.5, and 25-31; Plin. NH 3.138; Flor. 1.20.3; App. Celt. 2; Dio fr. 50.4; Oros. 4.13.5-10; Zon. 8.20; cf. Fab. Pict. fr. 23 Peter, and Polyb. 2.24; Liv. Per. 20). He celebrated a triumph De Galleis (Polyb. 2.31.5-6; Act. Tr., Degrassi 78f., 550; Flor. 1.20.3; Eutrop. 3.5; Zon. 8.20). Atilius campaigned in Sardinia, whence he returned by way of Pisa to engage the Gallic forces (see above), and lose his life in the battle (Polyb. 2.23.6, and 27-28; Plin. NH 3.138; Oros. 4.13.5-10; Zon. 8.20). (Broughton MRR I)
    • According to Diodorus (25.13), Aemilius ravaged Boian territory as Proconsul ({Gr}), but the other sources (Polyb. 2.31.4-6; Zon. 8.20) place this action before his triumph, which he celebrated as Consul (Act. Tr.) (Broughton MRR I)

  • Censor 220 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Mommsen (Str. 3.270f.) is inclined to place in this censorship the reform of the centuriate assembly, because of the shift in the registration of freedmen; but Botsford and others (Roman Assemblies, 214ff.) favor 241, because the tribes reached the final number of 35 at that time, and this reform is not included in the many charges brought in our tradition against Flaminius. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 23.21.6, and 22.3, and 23.5; 24.11.7; Plin. NH 35.197; Degrassi 118, 442f. Their activities perhaps included registration of freedmen in the four city tribes (Liv. Per. 20), certainly support for the Lex{236} Metilia de Fullonibus (Plin. NH 35.197), and the construction by Flaminius of the Flaminian way and the Circus Flaminius (Liv. Per. 20; Cassiod.; Fest. 79 L). Colonies were sent to Placentia and Cremona (Liv. Per. 20, see 218, Special Commissions). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Triumvir Mensarius 216 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Set up by the Minucian law because of a shortage of silver (Liv. 23.21.6; cf. 24.18.12; 26.36.8). (Broughton MRR I)
