Diodorus Siculus, Library, Book XI, Chapter 51 (search)
474 B.C.When Acestorides was archon in Athens, in Rome Caeso Fabius and Titus Verginius succeeded to the consulship. And in this year Hieron, the king of the Syracusans, when ambassadors came to him from Cumae in Italy and asked his aid in the war which the Tyrrhenians, who were at that time masters of the sea, were waging against them, he dispatched to their aid a considerable number of triremes. And after the commanders of this fleet had put in at Cumae, joining with the men of that region they fought a naval battle with the Tyrrhenians, and destroying many of their ships and conquering them in a great sea-fight, they humbled the Tyrrhenians and delivered the Cumaeans from their fears, after which they sailed back to Syracuse.

Pythian 3 For Hieron of Syracuse Horse Race ?474 B. C. If it were proper for this commonplace prayer to be made by my tongue, I would want Cheiron the son of Philyra to be alive again, he who has departed, the wide-ruling son of Cronus son of Uranus; and I would want him to reign again in the glens of Pelion, the beast of the wildswhose mind was friendly to men; just as he was when once he reared Asclepius, that gentle craftsman who drove pain from the limbs that he healed, that hero who cured all types of diseases. His mother, the daughter of Phlegyas with his fine horses, before she could bring him to term with the help of Eleithuia who attends on childbirth, was stricken by the goldenarrows of Artemis in her bedroom and descended to the house of Hades, by the skills of Apollo. The anger of the children of Zeus is not in vain. But she made light of Apollo, in the error of her mind, and consented to another marriage without her father's knowledge, although she had before lain with

Pythian 9 For Telesicrates of Cyrene Hoplite Race 474 B. C. With the help of the deep-waisted Graces I want to shout aloud proclaiming the Pythian victory with the bronze shield of Telesicrates, a prosperous man, the crowning glory of chariot-driving Cyrene;the long-haired son of Leto once snatched her from the wind-echoing glens of Mt. Pelion, and carried the girl of the wilds in his golden chariot to a place where he made her mistress of a land rich in flocks and most rich in fruits, to live and flourish on the root of the third continent. Silver-footed Aphrodite welcomedthe Delian guest from his chariot, touching him with a light hand, and she cast lovely modesty on their sweet union, joining together in a common bond of marriage the god and the daughter of wide-ruling Hypseus. He was at that time king of the proud Lapiths, a hero of the second generation from Oceanus;in the renowned glens of Mt. Pindus a Naiad bore him, Creusa the daughter of Gaia, delighting in the bed of the r

Nemean 9 For Chromius of Aetna Chariot Race ?474 B. C. Muses, we will go in victory procession from Apollo's shrine in Sicyon to newly-founded Aetna, where the doors flung open wide are overwhelmed by guests, at the prosperous home of Chromius. Make a sweet song of verses! For, mounting his chariot of victorious horses, he gives the word to sing for the mother and her twin childrenwho jointly watch over steep Pytho. There is a saying among men: a noble deed when it is accomplished should not be buried silently in the ground; and divine song is suited to boasting. But we will wake the shouting lyre and the flute in honor of the very pinnacle of horse-contests, which Adrastus established for Phoebus by the streams of the Asopus.Having mentioned them, I will adorn that hero with glorious honors, who, at the time when he was ruler there, made his city famous and glorious with new festivals, and contests of men's strength, and hollow chariots. For once Adrastus fled from bold-thinking A

nibal, but have since received a Roman colony,124 B. C. and now live in peace and are in a more prosperous state than ever. They also engaged in war with the Messapii concerning Heraclea, when they counted the kings of the Daunii and of the Peucetii as allies.Some suspect this last sentence to be an interpolation; certain it is that there is great difficulty in finding a time to correspond with all the circumstances contained in it. According to M. Heyne, this war must have taken place 474 B. C., but then Heraclea was not founded till 436 B. C. It seems too that the people of Iapygia had kings as late as 480 B. C. The remainder of the country of the Iapygii is very fair, notwithstanding unfavourable appearances; for although, for the most part, it appears rugged, yet when it is broken up the soil is found to be deep; and although it lacks water, yet it appears well-suited for pasture, and is furnished with trees. At one time it was thickly inhabited throughout its whole
Micythus from Rhegium (Diod. 11.66.) The death of Theron in B. C. 472, and the violence of his son Thrasydaeus, involved Hieron in hostilities with Agrigentum, but he defeated Thrasydaeus in a great battle, which contributed essentially to the downfal of that tyrant; and after his expulsion Hieron was readily induced to grant peace to the Agrigentines. (Diod. 11.53.) But by far the most important event of his reign was the great victory which he obtained over the Etruscan fleet near Cumae (B. C. 474), and which appears to have effectually broken the naval power of that nation. The Etruscans had attacked Cumae and the neighbouring Greek settlement in Campania with a powerful fleet, and the Cumaeans invoked the assistance of Hieron, who, though suffering at the time from illness, appears^ to have commanded in person the fleet which he destined to their support. (Pind. P. 1.137 ; and Schol. ad loc. ; Diod. 11.51.) Of the victory he there obtained, and which was celebrated by Pindar, an i
Medulli'nus 3. L. Furius Medullinus Fusus, was consul in B. C. 474. He opposed a revival of the agrarian law of Sp. Cassius, and, on laying down his office, was therefore impeached by Cn. Genucius, one of the tribunes of the plebs. (Liv. 2.54; Dionys. A. R. 9.36, 37.)
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), Cn. Manlius Vulso (search)
Cn. Manlius Vulso 1. (CN. ?) MANLIUS VULSO, consul B. C. 474 with L. Furius Medullinus Fusus, marched against the Veientes, and concluded a forty years' truce with them without fighting, in consequence of which he obtained the honour of an ovation on his return to Rome. In the following year (B. C. 473) Manlius Vulso and his colleague were accused by the tribune Cn. Genucius, because they had not carried into effect the agrarian law of Sp. Cassius Viscellinus ; but the accusation fell to thepresented as the son of No. 2, was consular tribune for the third time as late as B. C. 397, we can hardly suppose that Nos. 1 and 2 are the same person, since in that case the son would have held the consular tribunate 77 years after the consulship of his father. We may therefore conclude that the consul of B. C. 474 was the grandfather, and the decemvir the father of Nos. 3 and 4. If so the praenomen of the consul would be Cneius, as the decemvir is called in the Capitoline Fasti Cn. f. P. n.
