6. Q. Curtius
, a good and well-educated young man, brought in B. C. 54 the charge of ambitus against C. Memmius, who was then a candidate for the consulship. (Cic. ad Qu. Fr.
3.2.) We possess several coins on which the name of Q. Curtius appears, together with that of M. Silanus and Cn. Domitius.
The types of these coins differ from those which we usually meet with on Roman coins; and Eckhel (Doctr. Num.
v. p. 200) conjectures, that those three men were perhaps triumvirs for the establishment of some colony, and that their coins were struck at a distance from Rome.
