hey would take from you, were it possible, a part of this daylight. That you breathe, that you speak, that you have the shape of men, fills them with resentment. Nay, they assert, if you please, that it is sinning against Heaven to elect a plebeian consul. Tell me, if we are not admitted to consult the FastiDies fasti were the days on which it was lawful to pronounce judgment. Fasti often means, as here, the calendar kept by the pontiffs on which such days were marked. It was not until 304 B.C., when Cn. Flavius posted a list of them in the Forum (ix. xlvi. 5), that the plebeians could know with certainty when they fell. or the Commentaries of the Pontiffs,Minutes of the proceedings of the pontifical college. They probably furnished guidance regarding ceremonies. are weB.C. 445 therefore ignorant of what all men, even foreigners, know, viz. that the consuls succeeded to the place of the kings, and possess no jot nor tittle of right or dignity that belonged not to the kings before?

Many days before this, together with Syphax and the leading Numidian captives, Laelius reached Rome and set forth to the senate in order everything that had been done in Africa, in the midst of great rejoicing for the present and high hopes for the future. Thereupon the senate after deliberation voted that the king should be sent to AlbaI.e. Alba Fucens; pp. 262,538. A Roman colony since 304 B.C., it was on the Via Valeria, 47 miles beyond Tibur (Tivoli), 67 from Rome. Cf. Vol. VII. p. 41, note; Appian Hann. 39. Here Perseus of Macedon was later interned; XLV. xlii. 4. to be interned; that Laelius should be detained until the Carthaginian embassy arrived.This conflicts with xxi. 11. A thanksgiving for four days was decreed. Publius Aelius, the praetor, having dismissed the senate, then summoned an assembly and with Gaius Laelius mounted the Rostra. Thereupon, hearing that the Carthaginian armies had been routed, a famous king conquered and captured, all Numidia

CONCORDIA, AEDICULA * a bronze shrine of Concord erected by the aedile, Cn. Flavius, in 304 B.C. in Graecostasi and in area Volcani. It stood therefore on the GRAECOSTASIS (q.v.), close to the great temple of Concord, and must have been destroyed when this temple was enlarged by Opimius in 121 B.C. Flavius vowed this shrine in the hope of reconciling the nobility who had been outraged by his publication of the calendar, but as no money was voted by the senate, he was forced to construct the building out of the fines of condemned usurers ' summa nobilium invidia' (Liv. ix. 46; Plin. NH xxxiii. 19; Jord. i. 2. 339).

the comitium, which served as a sort of tribunal for ambassadors from foreign states, especially Greeks (Varro, LL v. 155). It was near the curia (Cic. ad Q. Fr. ii. I. 3), on the west of the rostra, and the relative position of these structures is determined by the statement of Pliny (NH vii. 212) that the accensus of the consuls proclaimed the hour of noon when, from the curia, he saw the sun between the rostra and Graecostasis-that is, in the south. On the other hand, we are told that in 304 B.C. Cn. Flavius erected a small bronze shrine (aedicula) to CONCORDIA (q.v.) on the Graecostasis quae tunc supra Comitium erat (Plin. NH xxxiii. 19), and this 'aedes ' is also spoken of as 'in area Volcani ' (Liv. ix. 46)-a statement that may mean that the Graecostasis had been moved or had ceased to exist at all in Pliny's day. About 30 B.C. sacrifices were offered to Luna 'in Graecostasi' (Fast. Pinc., CIL i². p. 219), and for the years 137, 130, 124 B.C., it is recorded that it rained blood

lin. NH xxxv. 120). For these names cf. CIL vi. 12745, 16239. It is last mentioned in the fourth century (Not. Reg. I). It stood ad portam Capenam (Liv. xxv. 40. 3; xxix. II. 13; Mon. Anc. 2. 29), evidently outside the gate but very near to it (Not. Reg. I; Liv. xxvi. 32. 4: Hiero... cum ingrediens Romam in vestibule urbis prope in porta spolia patriae suae visurus), and probably on the north side of the via Appia; cf. supra, 19. The statement that Q. Fabius Maximus Rullianus, censor in 304 B.C. when he established the transvectio equitum, caused the procession of equites to start at the temple of Honos et Virtus (de vir. ill. 32), is certainly incorrect in assuming the existence of this temple at that date; nor can its proximity to the temple of MARS EXTRA PORTAM CAPENAM (q.v.) be inferred from the statement of Dionysius (vi. 13. 4) that this review of the equites was established in 496 B.C. and began at the temple of Mars (Momms. Staatsr. iii. 493; RE vi. 1806; for the temple and

successful as Cassander's had been : he was obliged to retire with great loss. (B. C. 306.) He next sent Demetrius to besiege Rhodes, which had refused to assist him against Ptolemy, and had hitherto remained neutral. Although Demetrius made the most extraordinary efforts to reduce the place, he was completely baffled by the energy and perseverance of the besieged; and was therefore glad, at the end of a year's siege, to make peace with the Rhodians on terms very favourable to the latter. (B. C. 304.) While Demetrius was engaged against Rhodes, Cassander had recovered his former power in Greece, and this was one reason that made Antigonus anxious that his son should make peace with the Rhodians. Demetrius crossed over into Greece, and after gaining possession of the principal cities without much difficulty, collected an assembly of deputies at Corinth (B. C. 303), which conferred upon him the same title that had formerly been bestowed upon Philip and Alexander. He now prepared to marc
L. Ati'lius a Roman jurist, who probably lived in the middle of the sixth century of the city. By Pomponius (Dig. 1. tit. 2. s. 2.38) he is called Publius Atilius, and in some manuscripts of Cicero (Amic. 100.2), Acilius, not Atilius. He was among the earliest of the jurisconsults, after Coruncanius, who gave public instruction in law, and he was remarkable for his science in profitendo. He was the first Roman who was called by the people Sapiens, although, before his time, the jurist P. Sempronius (who was consul B. C. 304) had acquired the cognomen Sophus, less expressive to Latin ears. Sapiens was afterwards a title frequently given to jurists. (Gel. 4.1.) He wrote Commentaries on the laws of the Twelve Tables. (Cic. de Leg. 2.23; Heinec. Hist. Jur. Rom. § 125.) [J.T.G
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), Calvi'nus or Calvi'nus Maxnimus (search)
Calvi'nus or Calvi'nus Maxnimus 2 CN. DOMITIUS CN. F. CALVINUS, surnamed Maxnimus, offered himself as a candidate for the curule aedileship in B. C. 304; but, although his father had been consul, Cn. Flavius, the famous scribe of Appins Clandius, was preierred to him Five years later, however, B. C. 299, he was elected curule aedile. (Liv. 10.9, where instead of the praenomen C. we ought to read Cn.) He was raised to the consulship in B. C. 283, together with P. Cornelius Dolabella. The name of Calvinus scarcely appears during the year of his consulship, though he must have been very actively engaged, for Rome was just then threatened by a coalition of all her enemies in Italy. Stimulated by the Lucanians and Bruttians, and more especially by the Tarentines, the Etruscans, Gauls, Umbrians, and Samnites took up arms against her. The Senones, allied with the Etruscans, attacked the town of Arretium; and as the consuls were probably engaged in other parts of Italy, the praetor L. Caecil
