Laeto'rius

2. C. Laetorius, was tribune of the people in B. C. 471, and by his courage and energy decided the success of the Publilian rogation, by which the comitia tributa obtained the power of legislating for the whole community, and of electing the plebeian magistrates, tribunes and aediles, who accordingly must have been chosen formerly either by the comitia curiata or centuriata, a disputed point on which see Dict. of Ant. s. v. Tribunus. (Liv. 2.56-58; Dionys. A. R. 9.41-49.) It seems not improbable that this Laetorius, if not a relation, was the same who, with the praenomen Marcus, occurs in the annals a few years before. [No. 1.]
