Mae'nius

2. C. Maenius, tribune of the plebs B. C. 483, attempted to prevent the consuls from levying troops till they carried into effect a division of the ager publicus among the plebs; but this opposition was rendered of no effect, by the consuls withdrawing from the city and holding the levy outside the walls, at a mile beyond the gates, where the protecting power of the tribunes ceased. All who refused to obey the summons of the consuls were punished (Dionys. A. R. 8.87). The manuscripts of Dionysius have C. Manius, for which Lupus substituted Manilius, and Gelenius Maenius; but the latter is no doubt the correct conjecture. (Niebuhr, Hst. of Rome, vol. ii. p. 185, n. 410.)
