A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), (search)
Gallus, Ogu'lnius 1. Q. Ogulnius Gallus, L. F. Q. N., was consul in B. C. 269 with C. Fabius Pictor, and carried on a war against the Picentes, which, however, was not brought to a close till the year after. This consulship is remarkable in the history of Rome as being the year in which silver was first coined at Rome. In B. C. 257 Q. Ogulnius was appointed dictator for the purpose of conducting the feriae Latinae. (Eutrop. 2.16; Liv. Epit. 15; Plin. Nat. 33.13.)
Lo'llius 1. A Samnite hostage after the war with Pyrrhus, who fled from Rome, collected a body of adventurers, and took possession of a fort, Caricinum in Samnium, from which he made predatory excursions, until he was overpowered and the fort taken by Q. Ogulnius Gallus and C. Fabius Pictor, B. C. 269. (Zonar. 8.17; Dionys. ap. Mai, Script. Vet. Nov. Collect. vol. ii. p. 526.)
Ogu'lnia Gens plebeian, is most known through one of its members being the proposer of the law, which opened the two great ecclesiastical corporations to the plebeians. The first and only person in this gens who obtained the consulship is Q. Ogulnius Gallus, who was consul B. C. 269. GALLUS is the only cognomen of the Ogulnii : the others, who have no surname, are given below. The annexed coin belongs to this gens, but by whom it was struck is uncertain. The names on the obverse, Q. OGVL. CAR. VER., are those of triumvirs of the mint, and are probably abbreviations of Q. Ogulnius, Carvilius, and Verginius or Virgilius.
Pictor 2. C. Fabius Pictor, son of No. 1, was consul B. C. 269, with Q. Ogulnius Gallus. The events of his consulship are related under GALLUS, p. 228.
