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.)

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.
