The Women of Aetna, Aeschylus also composed other pieces in Sicily, in which are said to have occurred Sicilian words and expressions not intelligible to the Athenians. (Athen. 9.402b.) From the number of such words and expressions, which have been noticed in the later extant plays of Aeschylus, it has been inferred that he spent a considerable time in Sicily, on this his first visit. We must not however omit to mention, that, according to some accounts, Aeschylus also visited Sicily about B. C. 488, previous to what we have considered his first visit. (Bode, Id. iii. p. 215.) The occasion of this retirement is said to have been the victory gained over him by Simonides, to whom the Athenians adjudged the prize for the best elegy on those who fell at Maarathon. This tradition, however, is not supported by strong independent testimony, and accordingly its truth has been much questionned. Suidas indeed states that Aeschylus had visited Sicily even before this, when he was only twenty-fiv
Deino'lochus (*Deino/loxos,) a comic poet of Syracuse or Agrigentum, was, according to some, the son, according to others, the disciple, of Epicharimus. He lived about B. C. 488, and wrote fourteen plays in the Doric dialect, about which we only know, from a few titles, that some of them were on mythological subjects. (Suid. s.v. Fabric. Bibl. Graec. ii. p. 436; Grysar, de Doriens. Com. i. p. 81.) [P.
the common interchange of the letters r and s (Liv. 3.4), as in the name Valerius and Valesius. History leaves us in darkness as to the origin of the Furia gens; but, from sepulchral inscriptions found at Tusculum (Gronov. Thesaur. vol. xii. p. 24), we see that the name Furius was very common in that place, and hence it is generally inferred that the Furia gens, like the Fulvia, had come to Rome from Tusculum. As the first member of the gens that occurs in history, Sex. Furius Medullinus, B. C. 488, is only five years later than the treaty of isopolity which Sp. Cassius concluded with the Latins, to whom the Tusculans belonged, the supposition of the Tusculan origin of the Furia gens does not appear at all improbable. The cognomens of this gens are ACULEO, BIBACULUS, BROCCHUS, CAMILLUS, CRASSIPES, FUSUS, LUSCUS, MEDULLINUS, PACILUS, PHILUS and PURPUREO. The only cognomens that occur on coins are Brocchus, Crassipes, Philus, Purpureo. There are some persons bearing the gentile name Fu
Glau'cias (*Glauki/as), a statuary of Aegina, who made the bronze chariot and statue of Gelon, the son of Deinomenes, afterwards tyrant of Sycuse, in commemoration of his victory in the chariot race at Olympia, Ol. 73, B. C. 488. The following bronze statues at Olympia were also by Glaucias:--Philon, whose victory was recorded in the following epigram by Simonides, the son of Leoprepes,-- *Patri\s me\n *Korku/ra, fi/lwn d' o)/nom', ei)mi\ de\ *Glau/kou *Ui(o\s, kai\ ni/kh pu\c du/' o)lumpia/dawing bronze statues at Olympia were also by Glaucias:--Philon, whose victory was recorded in the following epigram by Simonides, the son of Leoprepes,-- *Patri\s me\n *Korku/ra, fi/lwn d' o)/nom', ei)mi\ de\ *Glau/kou *Ui(o\s, kai\ ni/kh pu\c du/' o)lumpia/das: Glaucus of Carystus, the boxer, practising strokes (skiamaxw=n); and Theagenes of Thasos, who conquered Euthymus in boxing in Ol. 75, B. C. 480 (Paus. 6.6.2). Glaucias therefore flourished B. C. 488-480 (Paus. 6.9.3, 10.1, 11.3). [P.
Medulli'nus a family-name of the gens Furia, a very ancient patrician house at Rome. [FURIA GENS.] Medullia, from which the surname comes, was a Latin town very early incorporated with Rome (Dionys. A. R. 3.1; Liv. 1.33, 38), and, since Medullinus appears on the Fasti in B. C. 488, only five years after the Cassian treaty of isopolity with the Latin league, this branch of the Furii was doubtless Latin. The Tullii Hostilii also were originally from Medullia. (Dionys. l. c.; Macr. 1.6.)
Medulli'nus 1. SEXT. FURIUS MEDULLINUS FUSUS, was consul in B. C. 488, the year in which, according to the common story, Coriolanus led the Volscians against Rome. (Dionys. A. R. 8.16, 63; Liv. 2.39.)
Nau'tia Gens an ancient patrician gens, a member of which obtained the consulship as early as B. C. 488. It claimed to be descended from Nautius or Nautes, one of the companions of Aeneas, who was said to have brought with him the Palladium from Troy, which was placed under the care of the Nautii at Rome. (Dionys. A. R. 6.4; Verg. A. 5.704, with the note of Servius.) Like many of the other ancient gentes, the Nautii disappear from history about the time of the Samnite wars. All the Nautii bore the surname of RUTILUS.

Ru'tilus, Nau'tius 1. Sp. Nautius Rutilus, is first mentioned by Dionysius in B. C. 493, as one of the most distinguished of the younger patricians at the time of the secession of the plebeians to the Sacred Mount. He was consul in B. C. 488 with Sex. Furius Medullinus Fusus, in which year Coriolanus marched against Rome. (Dionys. A. R. 6.69, 8.16, &c.; Liv. 2.39.)
s by which he rose to the sovereign power we have no accurate information. Polyaenus indeed tells us (6.51), that having been appointed by the state to superintend the erection of some extensive public buildings, he applied the money furnished him for this purpose to his own objects, and raised a body of mercenary guards, by whose assistance he established himself on the throne. Whatever credit be due to this story, we learn that he had assumed the government of his native city as early as B. C. 488, and retained it from that time, without interruption, till his death. (Diod. 11.53.) It is probably to the early period of his rule that we may refer the attempt of his kinsmen Capys and Hippocrates to overthrow his power, which was frustrated by their defeat at the river Himera. (Schol. ad Pind. O. 2.173.) The next event of which we find mention is his expulsion of Terillus from Himera [TERILLUS], which took place probably as early as B. C. 482. (Hdt. 7.165.) While he by this means unite
