Clau'dius

8. APP. CLAUDIUS APP. P. F. N. CRASSUS (or CRASSINUS), a son of No. 6, distinguished himself by his opposition to the Licinian rogations, particularly as regarded the appointment of plebeian consuls. In 362, on the death of the consul Genucius, he was appointed dictator to conduct the war against the Hernicans, when a victory was gained over them under his auspices. In 349 he was made consul, but died at the commencement of his year of office. (Liv. 6.40-42, 7.6, &c., 24, 25.)
