QUIN0977 L. Quinctius (43) T. f. L. n. Flamininus

In the manuscript tradition the praenomen is given as T., not L., as Briscoe, Comm. Livy 65L, and Sumner, AJPh 96, 1975, 321-322, point out. It has regularly and rightly been corrected to L., since Titus competed for the consulship ex quaestura (Liv. 32.7.9). See Badian, JRS 61, 1971, 110-111. (Broughton MRR III)

  • Augur 213 to 170 (Rüpke 2005) Expand
    • L. Flamininus, brother of Titus Flamininus, the liberator of the Greeks, would have been very young at this time, but it seems improbable that no close relative of his should have held a major priesthood (Münzer, APF 118f.; Bardt 18f.). (Broughton MRR I)
    • L. Quinctius Flamininus succeeded P. Furius Philus. Liv. 25.2.2; see 214, Censors. (Broughton MRR I)
    • The name of the successor to Flamininus lost in a lacuna in the text of Livy. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 43.11.13. On Flamininus, see Lübker no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Aedilis Curulis 201 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Liv. 31.4.5-6. On Quinctius, see Lübker, no. 12; on Valerius, Münzer, Gent. Val. 39, no. 17. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Praetor 199 urbanus, Rome (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • L. Flamininus may have performed the duties of both Pr. Urbanus and Peregrinus; cf. Mommsen, Str. 2.210, note 5. (Broughton MRR I)
    • See Lübker, no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)
    • p. 729 (Brennan 2000)
  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 198 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The phrases describing Flamininus' command, "cui classis cura maritimaeque orae imperium mandatum ab senatu erat" (Liv. 32.16.2) in 198, and "praeesse eidem quae praeerat classi iussus" (32.28.9) in 197, and the fact that he had just been Pr. Urbanus, all suggest that his imperium as Praetor was prorogued. But he is definitely termed a Legatus (Liv. 33.17.2 and 15). Note that in 193 Ti. Sempronius Longus (Cos. 194) is termed a Legatus of Merula in Gaul (35.5.1), but in contrast with the other Legatus Marcellus (Cos. 196) is referred to later as possessing imperium (35.8.6). See Mommsen, Str. 2.675-701, esp. 683; and on Flamininus, Jashemski, op. cit. (see 205, note 2) 28. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Legate (Liv. 33.17.2 and 15). The Senate gave him charge of the fleet in Greece and command of the coast (Liv. 32.16.2). On his campaign, see Liv. 32.16-17, 19-23, 39-40; CIL 1 .2.613- ILS 14. See Lübker, no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 197 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Legate under his brother and in command of the fleet; see 198, and esp. Liv. 33.17.2. On his operations, see Liv. 33.16-17. See Lübker, no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 195 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Continued in command of the fleet (Liv. 34.26.11; 34.29-30, and 40.7; cf. Zon. 9.18). See Lübker no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 194 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Continued with Flamininus in Greece as a Legate in charge of the fleet (Liv. 34.50.11; see 198-195). See Lübker, no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)

Max. 4.5.1. Flamininus was assigned Italy, Gaul, and the holding of the elections (Liv. 35.20.1-7, and 20.4-6), and Domitius a province outside of Italy in case of war with Antiochus (35.20.7), but otherwise Italy and the Gauls (35.20.2). Both were actively engaged in Italy, Flamininus against the Ligurians and Domitius against the Boii (35.22.3-4, and 40.2-4). On Flamininus, see Lübker no. 12. (Broughton MRR I)
