    • The cognomen Cincinnatus, which appears in the three late chronographers, is otherwise found only in the family of the Quinctii, while Münzer (RE) believes that this Manlius should be a Vulso. Münzer's suggestion that a Consul Suffectus with the cognomen Cincinnatus appeared in the Fasti Cap. seems unlikely in view of the lack of space on the stone and the absence of any such notice in Dion. Hal. See Degrassi 89. On Manlius, see the variant readings Manilius, Mamilius and Manlius in Livy 2.43.11, and 47.1, ed. Conway-Walters. (Broughton MRR I)

({Gr}); Cassiod.; Degrassi 24f., 89, 356f. Manlius and Q. Fabius (Cos. 485, 482), brother of the Consul, were killed in a campaign against Veii (Liv. 2.44.1-47.12; Dion. Hal. 9.5.1-13.4; cf. Val. Max. 5.5.2; Frontin. Str. 1.11.1; 2.6.7, and 7.11; Oros. 2.5.7; Zon. 7.17). Fabius abdicated before the end of the year (Dion. Hal. 9.13.4). (Broughton MRR I)
