8. Cn. Cornelius
Cossus, P. F. A. N., consular tribune in B. C. 406, when he was left in charge of the city while his colleagues marched against Veil, consular tribune a second time in 404, and a third time in 401, in the last of which years he laid waste the country of the Capenates, but the enemy did not venture upon a battle. Cossus was a moderate man in the party struggles of his day.
He caused a third stipendium to be paid to those horsemen, who were not supplied with a horse by the state, and was supposed to have procured the elevation of his half-brother or cousin, the plebeian P. Licinius Calvus, to the consular tribunate in B. C. 400. (Liv. 4.58
