Ma'ximus, Fa'bius

5. Q. Fabius Maximus, Q. F. Q. N., elder son of the preceding, was curule aedile in B. C. 215, and praetor in 214. He was stationed in Apulia (Liv. 24.9, 11, 12), in the neighbourhood of Luceria ib. 12, 20), and co-operated ably with the other commanders in the second Punic war. (Cic. pro Rab. Post. 1.) He was consul in B. C. 213, when Apulia was again his province (Liv. 24.45, 46). His father in this year served under him as legatus at Suessula. (Liv. 24.43, 44; Plut. Fab. 24.) The younger Fabius was legatus to the consul M. Livius Salinator B. C. 207. (Liv. 28.9.) He died soon after this period, and his funeral oration was pronounced by his father. (Cic. de Nat. Deor. 3.32, Tuscul. 3.28, De Sen. 4, ad Fam. 4.6.)
