Menenius Lanātus


Agrippa. Roman consul in B.C. 503. It was owing to his mediation that the first great rupture between the patricians and plebeians, when the latter seceded to the Sacred Mount, was brought to a happy and peaceful termination in B.C. 493; and it was upon this occasion he is said to have related to the plebeians the well-known fable of the belly and the members.


Titus. A Roman who as consul in B.C. 477 was defeated by the Etruscans. He had previously, by his treacherous neglect, allowed the Fabii to be destroyed by the enemy. Being tried by the tribunes, he was fined, and, by constant brooding over his disgrace, pined away and died (Livy, ii. 51).
