Cossus

10. A. Cornelius Cossus, was appointed dictator B. C. 385, partly on account of the Volscian war, but chiefly to crush the designs of Manlius. The dictator at first marched against the Volsci, whom he defeated with great slaughter, although their forces were augmented by the Latini, Hernici and others. He then returned to Rome, threw Manlius into prison, and celebrated a triumph for the victory he had gained over the Volsci. (Liv. 6.11-16.)
