2 Pythodotus was archon at Athens from July 343 to June 342 B.C. C. Plautius Venno and T. Manlius Imperiosus Torquatus were the consuls of 347 B.C. (Broughton, 1.130).
8 This priesthood is not mentioned by Plutarch, and may be a personal observation of Diodorus himself.
9 This humbling of the amphipolate probably consisted in making it no longer eponymous; instead of a local priesthood, the Syracusans thereafter dated by the Roman consuls. The reference may be to the grant of jus Latii to the Sicilians by Caesar (by 44 B.C.: Cicero Ad Atticum 14.12.1), or to later grants by Augustus (A. N. Sherwin-White, The Roman Citizenship (1939), 175).
