—and besides these, eighty senators or men who had held offices which would have given them the right to be elected to the senate,The Ovinian Law (soon after 368 B.C.) had provided that the censors must enrol in the senate such as had held curule office (curule aedileship, praetorship, consulship) since the last censorship. but had volunteered to serve as soldiers in the
legions. The prisoners taken in this battle are said to have numbered three thousand foot-soldiers and fifteen hundred horsemen.
