2. L. Cornelius
Ser. F. P. N. MALUGINENSIS, consul B. C. 459 with Q. Fabius Vibulanus.
The consuls of this year carried on war against the Volsci and the Aequi with great glory and success.
According to some accounts Maluginensis took Antium, and we learn front the triumphal Fasti that he obtained a triumph for his victory over the Antiates. (Liv. 3.22
; Dionys. A. R. 10.20
; Diod. 11.86
He is mentioned as one of the defenders in the senate of the second decemvirate in B. C. 449, because his brother Marcus was one of the number (Liv. 3.40
; Dionys. A. R. 11.15
); but if we can rely upon the Fasti, in which Marcus is called SER., L. F. N., we must understand frater
to mean first cousin, and not brother.
