Si'culus, Cloe'lius 1. Q. Cloelius Siculus, consul B. C. 498, with T. Larcius. According to Dionysius, Cloelius appointed his colleague Larcius dictator, and fought under him in the battle against the Latins; but Livy and other authorities make Larcius dictator three years earlier, namely in B. C. 501. (Liv. 2.21; Dionys. A. R. 5.59, 71, 72, 75, 76.)
curi (Castor and Pollux), who were seen charging the Latins at the head of the Roman cavalry, and who afterwards carried to Rome the intelligence of the defeat of the Latins. A temple was built in the forum on the spot where they appeared, and their festival was celebrated yearly on the Ides of Quintilis (the 15th of July), the day of the battle of Regillus, on which all the knights passed in solemn procession to their temple. According to Livy the battle of the lake Regillus was fought in B. C. 498, but he says that some of the annals placed it in B. C. 496, in which year it is given by Dionysius (6.3) and in the Fasti Capitolini. The Latins were completely humbled by this victory. Tarquinius Superbus had no other state to whom he could apply for assistance. He had already survived all his family; and he now fled to Aristobulus at Cumae, where he died a wretched and childless old man. (Liv. 2.1-21; Dionys. v. l--6.21.) In the preceding account we have attempted to give the story

). In the following year, B. C. 501, Cassius was appointed first magister equitum to the first dictator, T. Larcius Flavus; but in some authorities a different year is given for the first dictatorship. After the battle of the lake Regillus in B. C. 498 or 496, Cassius is said to have urged in the senate the destruction of the Latin towns. (Liv. 2.18; Dionys. A. R. 5.75, 6.20.) In B. C. 493 he was consul a second time with Postumus Cominius Auruncus; and they entered upon their consulship durisence of the consul, who, he supposes, had left Rome in order to take the oath to the treaty among the Latins. In the same year Cassius consecrated the temple of Ceres, Bacchus, and Proserpine, which the dictator A. Postumius Albus had vowed in B. C. 498. (Liv. 2.33; Cic. de Rep. 2.33, pro Balb. 23; Dionys. A. R. 6.49, 94, 95; respecting the league with the Latius, see Niebuhr, Hist. of Rome, vol. ii. p. 38, foll.) In B. C. 486 Cassius was consul a third time with Proculus Virginius Tricostus
OLESUS, the reputed ancestor of the Valeria gens, who is said to have settled at Rome with Titus Tatius [VALERIA GENS]. The name afterwards became a cognomen in the Valeria gens. Thus we read of M. VALERIUS VOLUSUS, the brother of Publicola, who was consul B. C. 505, the fifth year of the republic, with P. Postumius Tubertus. He fought, together with his colleague, against the Sabines, and obtained a triumph on account of his victory over them. He fell at the battle of the Lake Regillus, B. C. 498 or 496 (Liv. 2.16, 20; Dionys. A. R. 5.37 ; Plut. Publ. 20). We also read of another brother of Publicola, v. who bore the same cognomen, namely, M'. VALERIUS VOLUSUS MAXIMUS, who was dictator in B. C. 494, and to whom the family of the Valerii Maximi traced their origin. [MAXIMUS, p. 1001a.] It may be, however, that a mistake has been made in the Annals, and that Manius, the dictator, was the same person as Marcus, the consul : his praenomen would have been changed, because it was stated
