Centumalus

2. CN. FULVIUS CN. F. CN. N. CENTUMALUS, consul B. C. 229 with L. Postumius Albinus, conducted the war with his colleague in Illyria. They met with no effectual resistance; and after the troops of the Illyrian queen, Teuta, had been completely dispersed, and she herself had retired with a very few followers to a strongly fortified town, called Rhizon, Centumalus returned to Rome with the greater part of the navy and land forces, leaving Albinus behind with forty ships. Centumalus triumphed in the following year, the first time that a triumph had been celebrated over the Illyrians. (Plb. 2.11, 12; Flor. 2.5; Eutrop. 3.4; Oros. 4.13; comp. Dio Cass. Frag. 151, ed. Reimar.)
